Even though they have been around for decades, outdoor fire pits are fascinating more people than ever in recent years. The trend of homeowners adding fire pits, or buyers looking to install their first backyard firepit solution continues to grow. But what makes these multidimensional fire pits so popular?
BENEFIT #1: IT'S A GOOD INVESTMENT
Fire pits or backyard fireplaces top the American Society of Landscape Architects’ list of the most popular outdoor design elements, outranking lighting, and seating and dining areas, according to the 2020 Residential Landscape Architecture Trends survey.
BENEFIT #2: EASY TO USE
So easy that a caveman can do it? They did discover fire after all! From small table firepits to large elaborate hardscaped fire pits, its a no-brainer when you want to spend the evening outside -- just light it up! Whether you choose gas or wood burning, a night by the fire is as easy as 1-2-3.
BENEFIT #3: WOOD FREE GAS OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE
Speaking of easy, a gas fire pit can be a “table” or “pit” of fire for your deck, patio, or backyard. It is largely for appearance and enhancing the landscaping of your outdoor space, but also serves as a source of warmth in cooler weather and a focal point for family get togethers, parties, and social gatherings. Fire pits come in many designs and can be anything from an individual burner with a simple base or coffee table-looking piece that is flat and coverable.
BENEFIT #4: PATIO FIRE PITS ARE SAFER
Many Maryland counties have laws about which type of fuel you can burn. Keep in mind that most of these ordinances have what’s best for the environment and your best interests in mind. Smoke from wood-burning fireplaces and fire pits, depending on what you are burning, can be harmful and cause unwanted pollution. Both the Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association (HPBA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offer excellent free guidelines on safety in this area.
BENEFIT #5: SO MUCH FUN
Having a fire pit on your patio is a lifestyle changer. The way you spend your time, entertain guests, and how you feel about your outdoor space transforms when you own a patio fire pit. Everyone knows that fire pits add heat and light, and provide an enjoyable interactive ambience, and...did someone say s'mores?!
