Fire pits are the perfect addition to your garden or patio that will provide you with the optimal outdoor living experience all year round. During the summer, you can sit outside and enjoy barbecues, while in the winter, you can roast marshmallows and curl up with a hot cocoa.
Types of fire pit
Typically a fire pit can be built in three ways- in the ground, on the ground level in a structure made from fire brick and heatproof screed or stone, or on a stand/table. There are also many pit design ideas which you can adopt to suit your garden- from a traditional brick design to a stone structure or a stainless steel bowl. Another thing to consider is the way in which the fire pit will be fueled- you can have a wood fired pit, a natural gas fired pit or a propane fire pit.
You can buy a pre-made fire pit from Vitcas, as well as fire bricks and heatproof screed for building a surrounding structure for an in-the-ground fire pit or for a fire pit stand. Alternatively, if you would like to know how to build a DIY fire pit using fire bricks, read our article.
Whichever design you choose, the fire pit is sure to be a great focal point for summer garden parties with friends or cosy autumnal evenings by the fire and can even be utilised for grilling yummy foods which everyone will love.
