Maximizing Small Spaces for Stunning Fire Pits

A rectangular fire pit is an excellent option for a narrow patio and allows space for larger furniture pieces without sacrificing walking area. Gas-burning pits are a better choice for placement less than ten feet from the home.

  1. Before I can order I would like to receive a new catalog. Of I’m to order the fire pit I’m thinking of moving to arizona and some of the homes I looked at the fire place would be perfect. And I like the built I gas grill built in. I need a new catalog before I chose what I want

    • There may be a way to make a fire pit work for you. Depending on how tiny your yard is, you might need to opt for gas, since wood-burning pits should be 10 feet from any structure.

  2. Keep in mind, the higher the fire pit is constructed the less heat you will feel from it. Most of the ‘raised’ fire pits end up being for visual appeal rather than warmth. A fire pit raised to say shin or knee height will not throw heat on the legs, even if you are sitting within close proximity.
