Fire pits are beautiful accessories to set into your backyard. Like moths to a flame, they will attract your friends and family for fantastic evening gatherings. While they are beautiful and enjoyable, it’s important to create defined boundaries around them. This will both enhance their aesthetic appeal, and significantly improve their safety.
Boundaries can be created a number of ways. Using sand, gravel, concrete, tile, or stone you can create a pattern around the fire pit that mimics the shape and design perfectly. In fact most people incorporate a combination of materials that help convey an earthy, natural feel. As long as the material looks natural within the environment and the architecture of the home, the fire pit will feel as if it has always belonged there.
Whatever materials you decide to incorporate, you will want your boundary to extend at least 5, and preferably 10 feet from the edge of your fire pit. This will help prevent errant sparks from igniting your backyard and it will provide ample area for you and your guests to gather in.
