A fire pit is a unique enhancement to any outdoor space or patio and gives any area a new grand sense of style. Nothing adds light and instant warmth to a setting quite like an outdoor fire pit. There are outdoor propane fire pits that burn propane, and others types that burn other types of fuel. You can choose among models that burn wood, or charcoal, or natural gas. There are quite a few options available depending upon your needs.
Fire pits are usually round and there are two basic types, one being brick or tile and the other type being metal. The tile or brick versions are usually permanent structures that are built into your patio or selected outdoor area. These are great for outdoor cooking and open fires, but the fact that they are custom-built can make them quite costly. A much more affordable and portable option is to consider the metal version.
A typical metal pit is usually two to three in diameter, and approximately three feet deep. It can be constructed of copper, cast iron, steel or aluminum and will have a stand that keeps it about two feet off the ground. A classic fire pit does not have a roof or screen, but some models do come with mesh screens. This is a good idea if you decide upon a wood burning pit. Some also come with wheels for easy placement; just remember to put it in place before you start the fire.
