So you’ve decided to install a firepit in your backyard. Now comes the tough decision of deciding where to place it. A lot goes into this decision, and there are a lot of factors to consider, some that you may not have thought of until now.
A Central Point
When you install a firepit in the backyard, you’re creating a central point for people to gather around. You need to carefully consider where you want that to be. It needs to be far away from vegetation or flowers. When you decide where to place a firepit, you also need to make sure that there’s plenty of space for people to see. Depending on the heat, people will want to sit closer or further away. Make sure that you give them the option to do so by placing your firepit with care.
There are some other considerations to make when deciding where to place a firepit in your backyard. Make sure that you consider where the wind may blow from. If you have plenty of cover in one or more directions, then keep that in mind and plan accordingly. If you tend to get high winds from one direction, then you need to consider that when placing your firepit. You don’t want people to be choked by smoke or have embers blowing into your garden or lawn. Also, take care to keep the firepit somewhere that any children and pets are not likely to mess with it. You don’t want anyone to hurt themselves with your gorgeous new firepit.
