Your Patio: The Beauty of a Firepit, Without The Smoke
A crackling fire in an outdoor firepit adds an irresistible allure to the evening garden like no other garden feature. Whether it reminds you of camping in the woods or just brings out the romantic in you, it’s the perfect accessory for both large and small outdoor spaces. With one caveat: forget wood. Wood smoke pollutes the air and can cause asthma attacks. For a built-in firepit, the best solution is to run a natural gas line to it. The firepits below show a range of styles. If you already own a portable firepit, consider purchasing a clean-burning alcohol-based gel fuel insert.
