Types of Fire Pits in Weldon Springs, MO
"Fire Pit" is an umbrella term for flames that a group of people can gather around. As opposed to an outdoor fireplace, people form a circle around a fire pit. Which type of fire pit you want will mostly depend on why you want a fire pit in the first place.

They're great for people who like to use their outdoor space to host parties. They often feature best as the centerpiece among outdoor couches.

4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Get a Custom Fire Pit in Weldon Springs, MO

- Should I get a permanent installation, or a portable one? A permanent fixture can can be the focal point of an outdoor space. But a portable custom fire pit can be stored to create more space when you're not using it.

Or in your pergola or pavilion so you be warm outside when the weather isn't ideal? Or by the swimming pool so you can stay warm while swimming at night.
- What type of fire pit do I want? Fire pits come in all shapes and sizes. Do you want a standard, low-sitting circle to keep you warm as you sit around it? A taller, fire column to keep people warm during cocktails and mingling? Or a table-height fire pit, that you can eat over and then open up after dessert?
