15 Fantastic Benefits of a Backyard Fire Pit

15 Fantastic Benefits of a Backyard Fire Pit

Pools may be the most popular backyard amenity, but a backyard fire pit is an exceptional, less common way to convert your property into your very own resort! It’s truly a wonderful hardscape yard feature for families who like to relax and entertain out back. Just take a look at some of the coveted advantages it offers.

Why Install a Backyard Fire Pit?

  1. A fire pit adds a great deal of ambiance to your backyard oasis, stimulating all the senses with its colorful glow, dancing flames, crackling sounds, smoky scent, and warmth.
  2. It gives off considerable heat, facilitating use of the backyard when it’s chilly or downright cold out.
  3. Because of the above, fire pits can expand your entertaining space to the outdoors when it would otherwise be unpleasant.
  4. The fire illuminates the area, making the yard safer and more usable at night.
  5. The added light reduces the need for artificial lighting, lowering energy bills and your carbon footprint over time.
  6. Flames deter many types of insects, as opposed to artificial lights that tend to attract them.
  7. Romance! Where better to sip a glass of wine with that special someone than alongside your own personal fire beneath the stars?
  8. Contemporary fire pits give you easy control over the size of the fires, so you can adjust the heat, light, and mood as you like.
  9. When you work with a skilled hardscape installer, you have endless customization options to capture and show off your personal style.
  10. It creates a gathering point and communal feeling that makes your get-togethers more inviting and memorable (especially with a seating wall installed around it).
  11. Toasted marshmallows and s’mores!
  12. A controlled fire is a deeply relaxing, even meditative presence.
  13. What a great way to warm up and dry off after a dip in the pool!
  14. It adds value and major appeal to your home, two big benefits for resale.
  15. Your guests will be jealous.
