The cold of winter is starting to set in and families fortunate enough to have a fireplace in their homes are starting to gather around it to warm themselves. Fire has an almost therapeutic effect on people and is much more satisfying than simply turning the heater up. Wouldn’t it be great to have the same intimate experience of a warm fire outside, too? You can make that happen with a fire pit, and now is a perfect time to plan for one so that you can start enjoying it as soon as the springtime comes! Here are some other benefits of a fire pit.
An Effective Mosquito Repellent
The summertime is perfect for enjoying the outdoors, but mosquitoes can make it uncomfortable and ruin your time outside. A fire pit is a great solution for this problem as mosquitoes really don’t like smoke. In addition, you can add a few stalks of citronella or eucalyptus into the fire to really amplify the repulsiveness.
A fire pit can provide a comfortable amount of light for your evening outdoor gatherings. While you won’t brighten the entire backyard, a fire pit can provide just enough to make evenings more cozy and intimate.
Extending your Outdoor Season
With a fire pit, your available time outside is extended. While you probably still won’t want to go out in the dead of winter, you can certainly expect to plan outdoor gatherings in early spring and late into the fall. There’s nothing quite like the warmth from a fire pit on a slightly chilly evening.
A Tasty Option
Of course, your children will be excited for the possibilities a fire pit can provide – most likely, the possibility of nights spent out toasting marshmallows and making s’mores! Nights like this will give them memories that will last a lifetime. And you can also roast hot dogs, mountain pies, and cook popcorn over the open flame in your fire pit as well, if s’mores aren’t your thing.
