Few joys in life compare to gathering around a crackling fire under a starlit sky.
In the company of friends or in peaceful solitude, a fire pit is a doorway back to the primitive pleasures our ancestors savored and likewise depended on.
Just as a well-crafted fire pit can instantly–and irresistibly–improve a home’s potential, the landscape around said fire pit is equally important.
Just as you wouldn’t place a fine work of art amidst unsightly clutter, nor plant a singular garden plot within a barren wasteland, neither would the discerning soul implement his fire pit into surroundings that did not match the look and spirit of the design. From secluded rock gardens to Tuscan terraces to laid-back beach settings, your fire pit should reflect your personal definition of paradise.
Does the splendor of the Hamptons appeal to you or do you prefer a more relaxed Pacific vibe? Do you wish for your guests to cuddle on form-free benches for warmth or enjoy their own personal lounge chair? Should your fire pit be surrounded by lush flora & fauna or handsome stonework? All of the above is yours to decide, and with an endless wealth of fire pit landscaping ideas, you’ll have no shortage of inspiration.
Warmer nights are now upon us, and the skies are beckoning us outdoors. Now is the time to create a space that will invite new memories as well as old friends, a space that will serve to remind us all that the oldest and most sacred element discovered by man is far from forgotten.
