Fire Pits 101
Fire pits, in general, are open vessels that can be used for warmth, beauty, atmosphere, and/or cooking. Available in a wide range of materials and sizes, most are enclosed with steel mesh or glass. They sit up off the ground, allow for 360 degree viewing, and are becoming increasingly popular as people strive to get more use out of their outdoor living spaces. Many of the fire pits can double as charcoal grills and offer various screen and grill options. The best and most popular fuel for outdoor fireplaces is hard wood. Alternative sources of fuel include manufactured fire logs, natural gas, propane and gel inserts. With their raised level, Patio Preserve all-weather fire pits will never stain your deck or patio. Patio Preserve fire pits retail from $138 to $280 with free ground shipping.
