wood burning granite fire pit for home

There’s nothing more relaxing than gathering around a fire with friends or family on a cooled-down summer evening. For most, those kinds of nights are reserved for camping weekends or cottage getaways. But there are ways to create that warm and comforting environment right in your own backyard.

There are options for you as well, depending on what your local bylaws will allow on private property. For example, you can choose a wood burning pit, if you want the most authentic fire experience. These are often built with heat-absorbing custom cut granite, which looks beautiful in a landscaped back yard area. They also come in large bowl shapes, which can look amazing in the middle of a space surrounded by Adirondack chairs.

If you decide to go with a gas-burning firepit, you can take your pick from a wide range of styles, from elegant fire bowls to tables with a built-in pit, and you can choose natural gas or propane burners. For this kind, you can fill the pit with elegant lava rock or an array of clear or coloured river stones or glass stones, depending on your design needs. Many stores carry a huge variety of options if you want to go the glass bead route.

Once again, it’s important to check your local laws to see what you’re permitted to have on your property, so do your due diligence to ensure you’re not breaking the law.
