Camping brings images of families getting together and having a wonderful time, enjoying the great outdoors and cooking under the stars. Whether you camp at a campground or prefer really roughing it out in the wild, one constant for camping is the camp fire.
Camp fires bring people together to sing, to roast marshmallows, or to just relax and watch the flames as they dance around. Imagine bringing that home and having all that and more right in your own backyard. With the addition of an outdoor fire pit in your outdoor decor, you can have all the benefits of camping, right outside your back door.
Outdoor fire pits mimic the shape of a campfire, though they are built with walls so you have your flames somewhat contained. Instead of building your fire in an old tire rim, the stationary variety are designed to match your decor, usually built in brick and will be a beautiful addition to your backyard for years to come. Placed anywhere in the backyard, you may choose to have the fire at a distance from the rest of your outdoor room, or include it in the design, either way, the heat and the light generated will allow you to use your outdoor space for longer into the cooler seasons.
Just like with a campfire, you can cook over the fire pits, using a grill feature, or cook on sticks if you prefer, just like if you were out in the great outdoors. Roast marshmallows, or simply use the flames for warmth on those chilly evenings. Gather around it to unwind with the family, or have friends over for an authentic outdoor camp meal served right in the backyard, the choice is all yours, and the memories will last a lifetime.
