There is something magical about a crackling fire ... something magnetic. Like moths to a flame, people are drawn to warming fires. Adding a fire pit to your landscape can create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for you and your guests. Fire pits provide warmth, light, a cooking source and atmosphere, making them a natural gathering spot for socializing, entertaining and relaxation.
Ground Cover Supply can create this magic for you with many different types of fire pits. There are many options when it comes to the size, shape and style of a fire pit. Fire pits don't have to be round -- they can be square, rectangular, L-shaped, triangular or an entirely custom shape. Fire pits can be constructed from stone, brick, concrete or stucco. You can choose from chopped stone, flagstone, limestone, ledge stone, moss rock, as well as an assortment of bricks or stucco. Your fire pit can be wood burning or gas, but keep in mind a wood-burning fire pit is certainly more romantic and appealing, and generates much more heat than gas. You’ll also have the option to add lava rock, crushed glass or even add a grate like any other fireplace.
Fire pits create a natural gathering place with furnishings radiating out from the central fire. Like campfires, they encourage gathering and conversation. Whether positioned at ground level like a traditional fire pit, or at coffee table height, fire pits can create an oasis of mesmerizing flames, drawing family and friends close. And they can be used year 'round ... for Masters parties in the spring, cookouts during the summer, college game day on fall Saturdays and during the winter months for special Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and other special gatherings. If your home is where everyone usually congregates, a well-designed fire pit reflecting your personal style and passion will not only add warmth and ambiance to your landscape, it will also increase the value of your property. Our designers can work with your material and design of choice to find the perfect combination to meet your budget.
A fire pit can serve as an important focal point in your outdoor landscape design and can be enjoyed from the indoors as well when placed in the right spot. No matter what style or location you choose, a fire pit is a great way to enhance your outdoor living area, entertain with ease and turn your boring back yard into a welcoming gathering place.
