Do you want a really cool fire pit added to your backyard? Don’t know where the best place for a fire pit is? Are you worried about how safe it is to have one? No worries, we’ll answer all your questions that you need to consider before buying a fire pit. 

Best Place for a Fire Pit?

Even though our fire pits come with stands that sit elevated from the ground, they’re made of metal. This means they can conduct large amounts of heat. If you have a wooden deck or plastic outdoor furniture around the pit, be sure to protect your surfaces. Don’t forget to keep a safe distance from the pit, especially younger kids. 

For the best place for a fire pit, we recommend it on the edge of a wooden deck. You can also build around it if you want it to be a part of your deck’s aesthetics.

Do You Know What Your Area’s Building Codes Are?

For some areas, having something large like one of our fire pits may require clearance from your city council or homeowners association. This doesn’t mean you can’t have one.

You just might receive some guidelines for where it can be on your property to adhere to building regulations. You don’t want to get in trouble by placing it too close to the neighbor’s yard. 

Do You Know Your Area’s Fire Regulations?

When ordering a fire pit, it’s important to make sure you are up-to-date with your local fire department’s regulations. Of course, we want you to have an awesome fire pit. However, we also want you and your family to be safe with one. That’s why it’s important to know where the best place for a fire pit is for your area. It’s also important to know what regulations are associated with it.

So download a copy of the latest recommendations from your local fire department. Then follow their guidelines both before installing the fire pit and after.
