Hoodie season is quickly approaching – but it’s not time to bundle up inside and look out the window in despair…just yet! Fall is just around the corner; warm up and spend quality time with family and friends right in your backyard.

It’s a no brainer that fire pits have become a staple in outdoor living, they are the most sought after-design feature in hardscapes, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects. Fire gatherings have been around for thousands of generations.

More recently, though – fire pits have been innovated into more affordable designer brand options than before. Here in this article, we’re going to review some of the best fire pits of 2019 from different brands, offered right in our stores at 9 Brothers Building Supply.

What you need to know before purchasing:

Fuel Source: fire pits are offered in propane/gas, natural wood, or charcoal (for grilling) as a fuel source. Traditional wood/charcoal/pellet fire pits are easier to set up, and have a natural feel to them; however require cleaning and maintenance.

Propane/gas fire pits are much nicer, burn cleaner, and ignite instantly; making them especially desirable in commercial and residential applications alike. However, they require some planning to install, and a professional hook-up. Normally these gas powered fire pits have a hose that travels under the soil or your patio – to a hard-piped fuel delivery service line. Plan carefully! If you had to take up 30 feet of patio to repair a fire pit, it wouldn’t be feasible, would it? 

Design: Are you renovating your backyard and adding a fire pit to it? Many of our stone manufacturers carry matching fire pit stone kits to go with the color profile of your project. If you are just adding it to your outdoor living, check out the color profiles of each for something that can blend in to your existing design.

Then again, stop in our Brentwood or Riverhead Location with some pictures and we would be glad to guide you in choosing your next fire pit or fire bowl!
