Fire Pits Extend The Season

You don't need to be a gardener to enjoy sitting around the garden at the end of the day if you have a great fire feature. There are 3 on this property and they're great for bringing strangers together, then meeting and talking. They are also great for your own back yard. What a great place to talk with your wife and kids at the end of the day. A place to relax, recap the day, just enjoy the outdoors. It's perfect for extending the season and taking the indoors, outdoors. In many parts of the country it may mean that you can enjoy the outdoors most of the year. They're now widely available. They are available pre-made, some are propane, some real fireplaces, some even natural gas. They can be purchased and literally plopped in your back yard. For do-it-yourselfers make your own. Dig a pit, as long as you have enough air circulation to keep a fire going, that should be all you need. They are a great way to relax and enjoy the garden.
