Backyard fire pits have been growing in popularity, and it’s easy to see why: From elaborate gas-burning fire pit tables to simple masonry pits for building wood fires, fire pits offer a host of benefits.
Increase your outdoor season.
Mother Nature limits the portion of the year we can spend out of doors. An outdoor fire pit extends the portion of the year you can spend in your backyard by providing you with a heat source. A fire pit allows you to hold outdoor gatherings when chilly spring or fall nights otherwise would have driven you indoors.
Create an outdoor gathering space.
People love to gather around a fire. A fire pit provides the perfect outdoor gathering point around which you can relax with family, friends, and neighbors. Let your loved ones know you’re planning to light your outdoor fire pit on a summer evening, and you will inevitably draw a crowd.
Enjoy 360-degree heat.
There are other ways to heat your backyard, but one of the biggest benefits to an outdoor fire pit is that you get 360 degrees of heat. That means more people can gather comfortably around the fire.
Light up your backyard.
Of course, fires don’t just provide heat; they provide light. When you add an outdoor fire pit, you’re adding an additional source of lighting to your backyard. When you add a fire pit, you add a romantic, flickering natural light your outdoor space.
Enhance the style of your outdoor living space.
Adding a fire pit or fire pit table to your yard, patio or deck can transform your living space. A fire pit adds a beautiful focal point, sets the tone for your outdoor living space and can help define a gathering space. Your outdoor living space is an extension of your home, and when you furnish your outdoor living space with a fire pit, you help to create an additional outdoor “room” to your home.
One of the great things about outdoor fire pits is that they can provide functionality, along with warmth and light.

The fire pits can be designed as the centerpiece of a dining table or coffee table, or some fire pits have built-in grilling surfaces to serve as an additional outdoor cooking appliance.
