Design Aspect #2: Fire Pit Lighting And Seating
When planning your new custom designed and constructed fire pit, it is important to provide enough light for people to walk around your yard in a safe manner. It is also important to keep the lighting subtle enough to avoid altering the mood around the fire pit. You should consider having some light posts installed or simply stringing some overhead lights in the yard (avoid hanging lights directly over the fire pit).
You can even plug some energy efficient LED lights into a nearby outlet. Seating should be placed far enough away from the fire pit so that people can actually get up and move around as safely as possible. It is always a good idea to have built in seating constructed, or use heavy chairs that cannot be moved easily. These seating ideas will keep people from moving too close to the fire.
Design Aspect #3: Wood Vs. Gas Fire Pits
Did you know that wood, propane, and natural gas are the most common options to fuel a custom designed and constructed fire pit? If you favor the sound of a crackling fire, real wood logs are the way to go. Propane and natural gas are perfect for an instant and effortless fire, although you will not experience the same smoke and crackling sound as a real wood fire. Propane fueled fire pits have an attached propane tank. Natural gas fire pits require a gas line to be run from the house to the fire pit.
