With evening temperatures beginning to drop as we approach the end of summer, we find ourselves trying to endure the cold in exchange for more time enjoying the peaceful nature of our backyard. The perfect remedy for this kind of cold, is a warm fire pit in your own yard.
A fire pit adds a relaxing and romantic quality to your outdoor living space. It is the perfect addition to evening parties and family gatherings. During an evening party everyone will be looking for a warm place to continue chatting with friends and a fire pit is the logical place for people to go and hang out into the late hours of the evening.
A fire pit provides not only warmth and a relaxing environment, it also provides bug protection. There is nothing quite like sitting outside and enjoying the moonlit sky with friends only to be bit by a pesky mosquito. The smoke from the fire pit should keep the mosquitoes and other bugs at bay. You can also add a few citronella candles to the area to protect you and you guests so that they are protected even when they are not sitting so close to the fire. Another suggestion is to use some sage or rosemary in your fire. Mosquitos do not like the smell and will stay away.
Keeping the bugs at bay is something that can be easily handled with a fire pit. So grab a glass of wine and enjoy the warmth of your fire pit with friends and family all year long without the nuisance of the mosquitos.
