Warm And Useful Outdoor Fire Pits For Your Garden
Warm and inviting, outdoor fire pits makes a backyard focal point. While the flames are mesmerizing, with the smokey smell and crackling sounds, a fire pit’s warmth also makes it possible for you to begin your outdoor entertaining a little earlier each spring, and extend it into the fall. Outdoor fire pits are the portable fireplaces for your garden that will warm your patio along with your feet! It adds ambiance and a touch of fun for the whole family. There are many designs of outdoor fire pits, most made of metal or copper. The simplest design is a large wok-shaped tray that sits in a metal stand. Wood and kindling is placed in the tray, which is used like a fire pit. The tray has a removable steel-screen bubble top. Other outdoor fire pits are ornately designed, some square or rectangular in shape. Many have enclosed steel screen siding with solid black metal tops. Designs like these normally have wheeled legs and a rear handle for mobility when the pit is not in use.
There is also the chiminea style outdoor fire pits for that old potbelly stove look. Though charming, bear in mind that the door to the chiminea is relatively small, allowing the heat to radiate out in a very narrow band. If you will want several people to be able to warm themselves around the fire, an open design is preferred. Outdoor fire pits make an attractive addition to any backyard, and many come with a grill to convert your fire pit to a barbeque pit. You can cook those steaks first, then sit around the fire afterwards!
