A large backyard or deck is a great place for home improvement projects, including having an outdoor fireplace or fire pit built. If you are thinking of having a fire pit added to your property, here are some of the top benefits of a fire pit or outdoor fireplace.
Outdoor entertainment – An outdoor fire pit or fireplace is a great way to enhance your outdoor living area and spend time with friends and family.
Cook outdoors – If you like to host cookouts and barbeques with friends, a fire pit is a great addition to your backyard. It’s also great to toast marshmallows with the kids.
Stay warm during winter or on cool nights- You can extend your fall, spring, and even winter entertaining seasons by staying warm on those chilly evenings with your fire pit or outdoor fireplace.
Added ambiance- Sitting by the fire with a loved one can be romantic.The natural sound of crackling of wood logs burning can also be relaxing.
Mosquito repellent- Firepits are a natural mosquito repellant. Smoke from your fire pit will reduce the amount of mosquitoes that buzz around and bite you. For an increased chance of minimizing the number of mosquitoes, you can place a couple of stalks of citronella, catnip, or eucalyptus in the fire. As the plants burn, they emit a smell that mosquitoes hate.
Don’t leave fires unattended,make sure you watch it go out. Keep small children supervised near the fire.
Keep trash and other objects away from the base of the fire pit to avoid any accidental tripping and falling into the fire.
Keep a bucket of sand next to the fire pit, in case you have to extinguish or weaken the fire.
