14 Oct Incorporating a Fire Pit into Your Landscaping
With fall and winter on the horizon in Tucson, people will start lighting up their fire pits and having a great time with friends and family. If you have ever thought about incorporating a beautiful fire pit with your landscaping, then continue reading for a few elements to consider.
Select an Open Area
It is best to look for an open, uncovered area of your landscaping to install a fire pit. You want to create a large area to accommodate the fire pit and various seating places. However, you must also remember to be safe with a fire pit. By keeping your fire pit away from a covered patio and a safe distance from the house or flammable parts of your landscaping, you can ensure that your home and family are kept safe while enjoying the fire pit.
Look at Seating Options
Part of installing a fire pit in your backyard is for the social factor. Your friends and family can gather around a large, warm fire to roast marshmallows and share enjoyable stories. With this in mind, you want to look at many different seating options. Many built-in fire pits are complemented with brick and stone benches surrounding the area. There are many different seating options your landscaping company can recommend.
Consider Adding a Footpath
Depending on where your new fire pit is located, you may want to add a paved footpath from your patio to the fire pit. Stone footpaths are a beautiful addition to any yard, and they can help direct your family and friends to the social area around the fire pit. Footpaths also create a safe area for people to walk on when it is dark outside. This is crucial to keep guests from tripping and hurting themselves in your backyard.
