Wood-Burning Laws

If you are a starter and getting a fire pit for the first time, opt for wood-burning fire pits but only use them on covered porches. They are not ideal for use under low branches or in windy areas. Also from the safety perspective, burning wood and inhaling smoke from wood-burning fireplaces and fire pits can be dangerous.

If you love the sound of a crackling fire and an aroma that will linger on your clothes, wood pits can be considered and you can accommodate them. These days, better options like propane or natural gas pits can be used on open porches with overhead roofs. They look neater, with no pile of wood, ash, smoke, or debris.

When thinking of the right material for the fire bowl and fire pits, look for something that won’t wear easily and extend the life of your fire pit. Materials like metal fire pits often use cast aluminum that is less likely to rust, while copper can stain. Cast iron is also heavy.

Permanent or Portable

Permanent or portable, whatever you wish for depends on the location of installation, budget, and materials used. You can have a permanent fixture in your yard, if needed. If you opt for portable models then carrying the fire pits around will be easier.
