What Do I Need for an Outdoor Fire Pit in East End, NY? Gas or Wood Burning, What Fire Pits are Used For & More

There are additions you can make to your yard and property to make it beautiful and more functional. When you are looking at the best way to use your space, there are many options to choose from. Of course you can have a landscape updated, walkways with pavers or concrete and even a structure built like an outdoor kitchen. These are all great additions to a yard but there is one that can help your yard be more functional at night and on those chilly nights. A fire pit is a great way to use some of your outdoor space but you want to make sure it is done right. Mickey’s LawnScapes outlines what you need to know about installing a new fire pit.

How Far Away Should a Fire Pit Be from the House?

One of the first thing that you want to consider is where the fire pit is going to be placed. The placement of the fire pit is important for the safety of the house and the other dwellings around the area. Fire is something that should not be taken lightly and safety is important when using it but also when installing the pit. The fire pit should be placed in a location that is safe from flames jumping onto trees, shrubs and dwellings like houses and sheds. A professional will be able to map out the best location as well as what needs to be pulled away from the area before the pit is installed. A fire pit should be at least 10 feet away from any structure or combustible surface.

Gas Or Wood Burning Fire Pit

If you are having a fire pit installed in your yard you want to decide if you want a gas or wood burning pit. The wood pit is more rustic while the gas pit is clean and modern. They both will emit a flame that offer some of the same benefits but there is more. The wood burning pit will have smoke as well as the smell of the wood burning. The gas pit keeps all that away because it is burning from a gas line that you turn on with a switch.

What are Fire Pits Used For?

If you choose to have a fire pit installed at your house there are several benefits that come along with it. You can use the fire pit on cold days and nights to create a warm place to hang out. This allows you to use your outdoor space throughout the entire year. You can sit around the fire with some chairs to relax and still stay warm. You can also use the fire pit as a way to cook food. You can use a grate that can be placed on the fire where you can then barbeque on an open flame. The pit is also a great way to add some lighting and mood to the area if you want to host an event that will go into the evening hours. The fire pit will also bring some beauty to the home from the pavers, concrete and bricks that are used to create the space.
