While selecting the materials, you can choose a stone fire pit or metal fire pit. There are also ground fire pits made of concrete or a mixture of several materials. Choose the material wisely in accordance with your taste, goes well with the design of your backyard, etc. Concrete material is durable and doesn’t easily stain from soot. You can also go for powder-coated metal that is durable but can get hot. Again, natural stone is yet another great option but can easily stain and might crack from the heat.

Fire bowls are pits in the form of containers in different shapes that holds the logs or glass beads. Opt for the stone fire pit with elevated legs to help heat dissipate. They are available in different styles that include basic metal fire pit that is a combination of fire pits and beverage coolers. You can also go for square ones that resemble low tables, with enough room on the top to place a drink or plate. They serve an added advantage as they are portable and easy to clean, keeping into consideration the size you choose. A wood fire pit resembles an outdoor coffee table with a campfire in the middle. All your drinks and snacks can be placed on the flat surface surrounding the pit.

Ranging from small portable models to larger built-in styles, backyard fire pits come in a large variety. Go for the size with the style that fits your budget and location. For instance, store-bought fire pit models commonly range from 24-30 inches in diameter while the in-ground fire pits are bigger. From the low-to-the-ground fire bowls to taller models, the heights also vary a lot. While choosing the height of the fire pits remember that the height in comparison to seat height also affects reflected warmth.

Mobile or Permanent
