3 Reasons You Should Install A Fire Pit In Your Yard This Spring

Spring is well on its way in Georgia, and it’s time to think about your landscaping. Whether you’re laying down new sod, fertilizing, putting down some weed killer, or undertaking any other task, spring is the perfect time to revamp your landscaping – and your hardscaping.

If you’ve been considering a hardscaped patio with a fire pit or adding a standalone fire pit to your landscaping, now is the perfect time to do it. You’ll be able to take full advantage of your fire pit on the balmy spring nights – and have some great fun with it during the summer.

If you’re still not convinced, here are the top 3 reasons you should install a fire pit in your yard this spring.

1. Your Patio Gets A Focal Point

“Focal points” aren’t just architectural mumbo-jumbo. Your patio can be as beautiful as you like – but unless it has a natural place for people to gather, it won’t be living up to its full potential.

Fire pits are a fantastic way to add a natural, beautiful focal point to your patio – and they will draw in your guests like moths to a flame. Everybody loves sitting around a fire pit, and a smart, beautiful installation can take your patio and landscaping to the next level.

2. Fire Adds Beautiful, Natural Light That Accents Your Landscaping

Outdoor lighting can be difficult in a landscaping installation – artificial light is sometimes too stark and bright, but using lower-powered, more dim lights means that you won’t be able to see too well once the sun goes down.

A fire pit is a great way to add plenty of light to your landscaping and keep things looking natural. When you light a fire at night and you see the light flickering across your roses, your yard, and your trees, you’ll wonder how you ever did without one.

3. Fire Pits Help Keep Mosquitoes Away

This is probably the single best benefit of a fire pit – especially in the spring and summer. We all know how brutal the mosquitoes can be in the Georgia summer – but fire gives you a natural solution to your issue, without requiring expensive mosquito-killing lights, tiki torches, or citronella candles.

The smoke alone is enough to keep all but the peskiest of mosquitoes away from your patio – although you can add citronella, eucalyptus, or other oily plants to your fire pit if you really want to turbocharge its mosquito-repelling potential.
