Get All Fired Up For Fall!

Published Date: Oct 7, 2013

This is the season for harvesting some of life’s best memories. The smells of bonfires, the cozy sight of pumpkin patches everywhere, spiced cider and apple pies from local bake shops, and of course jumping into a huge pile of crackling, crunchy leaves. As we watch nature cycle through another season change, it’s a great time to think about change at home. Simple changes like adding a fire pit to your outdoor living spaces can make a big difference for making memories you will cherish forever.

Sitting outside in the crisp cool air, wrapped in blankets by a dancing flame seems to register much higher on our “favorite memories” list than sitting inside by a gas fireplace watching TV, along with the noises of the dishwasher, laundry machines, phones ringing, and all the other daily distractions.

Just stepping outside where flames are dancing in a fire pit or outdoor fireplace under the stars and amidst the fresh Autumn air seems to shut out all the chaos, re-ground us in what matters most, and put a damper on any nagging issues from earlier in the day. And the best part is that adding a fire pit or fireplace is a quick and simple upgrade to your outdoor living spaces that can be as affordable or extravagant as you like.

Paving stone fire pits can be built for gas fires, natural wood fires, and in a variety of sizes and same goes for fireplaces. Choose from the traditional square or round Capri fire pit units or custom build one to integrate with existing elements like outdoor seating areas, and retaining walls. Or, if you really want to go all out, consider building an outdoor fireplace. It will be the focal point of your space while adding ambiance and warmth. Another great option are portable fire pits and fire bowls if you aren't ready to commit to a permanent structure.
