Fall in Indiana has everyone ready to grab their flannel, make some soup, and spend time cozied around an outdoor fire. It’s the perfect weather for roasting marshmallows or drinking hot cider, enjoying time with friends. Now is the time of year that you wish you had a fire pit in your backyard. Well, stop wishing, and get your own custom fire pit before the winter weather hits. Here are a few tips from The Noll Landscape Group on how to complete your outdoor project.
1. Pick a space.
It’s important to pick the right location for your fire pit. You don’t want it too close to your house or close to low, overhanging trees. However, if you have an outdoor kitchen or patio area, it would be nice to incorporate the fire pit into your existing outdoor space. Take some time to select just the right spot.
2. Select a design.
Sure you can go to a home-improvement store and pick up a run-of-the-mill fire ring, but they aren’t build to last and may not fit into your current design scheme. Do some research, and find a fire-pit design that incorporates durable products like stone and rock materials. Be sure to also consider whether you want to add built-in seating, pavers surrounding your fire area, or any other custom features.
3. Choose quality rock materials.
Don’t skimp on sub-par stones. Choose quality rocks and building materials that are meant to last and withstand the heat. If you need help selecting the right rock, you can always ask one of our experts.
4. Get the job done right the first time.
