Nothing beats gathering family and friends around the warm glow of a fire pit on a Cape cod evening. Fire pits lengthen the season of your outdoor living space and it's a great alternative to a traditional outdoor fireplace. Fire pits come in a spectrum of styles, from poly lumber, stone, metal or decorative tile. Choosing a durable fire pit ensures it will last for years to come. It's important to consider the options available when choosing a fire pit. Propane and isopropyl alcohol models are beautiful but do not provide much warmth. Wood burning models provide ample heat, but you will need to contend with smoke, ash and greater clearance away from decks, trees and furniture to prevent accidents.
