‘Pre-made fire pits are the most common form of fire pits and can be purchased from a store. These are commonly made of pre cast concrete or metal and/or a combination of metal table and stone. They are usually natural gas, propane (LP) or bio ethanol. Wood burning fire pits made of metal are also quite common but under increasing scrutiny due to fire bans and air particulate emissions. Natural gas and propane burners in these sort of pre fabricated vessels are certified under ANSI (American), CSA (Canadian) and CE (European) standards. Unregulated and uncertified fire pit burners are increasingly being scrutinized by regulatory authorities and being denied permits. Fire pits have recommended clearance to combustibles and require at least 5 feet above the flame and 16″ circumference from the exterior perimeter of the vessel.
Essentially, to make a fire pit only a hole is required in order to safely contain a fire. This can be as simple as digging a hole in the ground, or as complex as hollowing out a brick or rock pillar. A wood-burning fire pit should be located at least ten feet (three metres) away from structures for safety. Use of a fire pit in adverse conditions should be avoided, and basic fire safety precautions apply.’

5 BENEFITS OF DESIGNING FIRE WITHIN YOUR LANDSCAPE
Sitting outdoors in your beautifully renovated landscape can be cold at times. Adding the heat from a fire feature offers a more comfortable setting for relaxing outdoors, reading, enjoying a glass of wine, or socializing. The warmth of a fire also allows us to use our outdoor living areas earlier in the spring season, and later into the fall months.
2) Beauty & Ambiance
Adding a fire feature to your landscape design creates a space that is beautiful and compelling. Having a fire pit or fire table, offers a great place to sit and watch the fire burn. Whatever fire feature you choose would be a beautiful addition to your creative landscape design, and may possibly be the most valuable part of your landscape investment.
Nothing adds to a summer patio party like a cozy outdoor fireplace or pit. When integrated into thoughtful landscaping designs, outdoor fireplaces extend your home and available party space from inside to outside. A fire pit is a natural gathering place, where you and your friends can sip some wine while conversing and laughing on a warm spring, summer, or fall night.
While they may not be as accurate as a gas grill, a fire pit or fireplace is still a valuable asset for cooking. If you’re planning to put a fire pit in your yard in the future, ask our CREATIVE team, or be sure to discuss it with a CREATIVEpro to include a fire unit that can be used for cooking. Lets not ever forget the art of simply throwing a few marshmallows on a stick, or cooking a hotdog over an open flame!
