As they are portable, outdoor firepits are easy to move from one place to another. You can carry your set to a picnic spot far from home without much difficulty. There are various accessories that can come with an outdoor firepit. You can buy them to enhance the safety and beauty of the fire pits. Here are some basic structural components of an outdoor fire pit: Fill: This may refer to the firepit glass crystals, which are uniquely formulated to avoid the fuel from melting too quickly. These glass crystals are available in different colors, so they emanate different colors when they burn. Another material that is popularly used as pit fill is lava rock. Although, natural wood can also be used as a fuel, using these specially formulated kinds of fuel makes it easy to move the firepit around.
Seat distance from the firepit is critical. Too close and the fire will be too hot; too far away and the heat wont reach you. You can vary the distance with each seat but we found that for a pit 800mm in diameter the seats should be about 1m away from the pit. This allows people to walk in front of each other around the fire. Once the rock seats are in place the next job was to pour concrete around the pit and around the bottom of the seats so that the outside line of concrete joins all the stones about halfway. The back of the rocks protrudes out into what will become turf.
As spring starts coming around and you are anxious to get out and enjoy the outdoors, but the temperatures are still uncomfortably cool in the evenings, an outdoor firepit can take enough of the chill out of the air to enjoy your back yard earlier than without one. If you have a hard time giving up the summer as autumn comes around it can fill the same purpose. Backyard firepits allow you to have a fire in your back yard safely without concern from the fire chief. They are self contained and very safe. Some are quite permanent, being made of rocks in a hole or a large boulder rock with the pit carved in the top, but there are many varieties that are light and portable. You can take them with you when you move or even to another location for a party. Outdoor firepits are mostly quite simple to clean and maintain. They make your yard a popular gathering place for the kids and their friends, your own family and friends and neighbors. Your yard can be the envy of the neighborhood and a way to keep your family home and together more.
Everyone likes the word retreat. It conjures up images of relaxing days spent on a luxurious beach or mountain village where all you have to do is sit back and relax and enjoy some time spent with those you care about. As well liked as this word is, many forget that they can actually create their very own quiet retreat right in their own backyard by strategically placing comfortable furniture and firepits around. Thats right, when you love the pleasure of being able to escape from the cares of the world, there is nothing more inviting than being able to retreat into your own backyard and sit by your own firepit and let the cares of the day just seem to disappear.
