It’s Fall and Time for Fire Pit Season

It’s Fall and Time for Fire Pit Season

The cold crisp air signals fall is here and means we cannot do all the outdoor activities we enjoyed during summer. But, if you have a fire pit you can extend the use of your backyard. A fire pit provides heat on those cooler days or nights when it’s too gorgeous to stay indoors. Having one installed affords you time to be outside without being uncomfortably cold.

The use of firepits and fireplaces is an outdoor design trend that has spread nationwide. Incorporating an outdoor fire pit or fireplace structure creates a beautiful backdrop to outdoor entertaining and extends the use of your landscape into the fall and throughout the winter. Imagine lighting a fire on a beautiful winter evening; staying warm while enjoying the winter sky.  Integrating a fire structure can be as simple as adding a portable fire pit to your existing patio or by having a fire pit built to work with your existing design. Retail stores like Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart and Cabela have many models to choose from.
