3 Reasons to Build A Backyard Fire Pit

Everyone loves to spend time outside with friends and family but as the temperature begins to dip no one wants to stand out in the freezing cold. Ever thought of adding a fire pit or outdoor fireplace to your landscape? Here are a few reasons why you should:

Property Values

A well-built fire pit and surrounding landscaping often increases property values considerably. If you plan on eventually selling your home, it will be worth much more if you have a developed and dedicated corner in your yard instead of a plain expanse of grass. An attractive fire pit area can add thousands to the value of your home, making it easier to sell because of the entertainment value of the area.

Extend the Season

If you like to entertain friends and family outdoors bundling up in warm clothes and sitting around a warm fire sipping cider is a nearly perfect way to enjoy a cool evening together. It will give you better use out of your impressively landscaped yard too.

Large Gatherings

If you’re partial to large family gatherings, a fire pit is the way to go. It’s tough to bring a group of people outside and place them around a barbecue grill or tiny portable fire pit. A dedicated outdoor pit is the ideal focal point for a large outdoor gathering. Toss in some logs, light the fire and hand out the marshmallows.
