It is the height of cookout season, and what is a backyard gathering without a cozy and classy fire pit? Fire pits add beauty, comfort, and charm to your backyard while giving it a traditional touch. Summertime and even early fall consist of a lot of backyard parties and get-togethers with friends and family, which may lead you to evaluate the look of your backyard and contemplate making new additions to it. Fire pits and flagstone patios are both very classy additions you can make to your backyard without completely changing the design of your home’s exterior. You may have some ideas in mind of fire pit designs that you might want to build, or maybe you just have an idea of where you would like to place your fire pit. The first step to having the fire pit of your dreams is knowing the right spot on your property for it. Once you figure that out, you can then decide what types of materials you want to use to build it, meaning whether you want to use fire glass or strictly stone, what colors you want your fire pit to be, etc. Keep the shape of the fire pit design you want in mind when choosing materials, because certain materials may work better for different shapes and sizes of fire pits.

Fire Pits & Glass: Fire Glass Is Your Best Friend

Fire glass is not only a great element to keep in mind when building a new fire pit, but it also is the perfect way to revamp an old fire pit, impressing visitors. Fire glass can come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. It is made from tempered glass, which allows it to withstand extreme temperatures without any damage to its color, shape, or shine. Once installed, fire glass is very low maintenance and does not emit any toxic fumes. Fire glass can also be used for both natural gas and propane fireplaces. Fire glass is a great addition to your fire pit when you are bored of looking at logs, and it will also become the focal point of conversations with visitors.
