It’s the perfect ambience when there’s a gathering around a fire pit. There’s music, warmth, maybe a few drinks and the sound of laughter. When you’ve got a fire pit of your own, the gathering makes itself as people move to and from the fire pit, grabbing a bite to eat along the way.
A fire pit can be a fantastic centrepiece to your backyard. There are ways to design your backyard around the fire pit to make your backyard party-ready every day and in all seasons. Here’s how:
Create a ring of DIY seats and logs and use the fire pit as the central object. Create your seats out of logs and old tree stumps. Pop it in the corner of your yard or in the middle so people can sit around the fire and still see clearly around the yard.
A nice cobblestone path or some stepping stones are the perfect way to lead you and your guests to the hero of your backyard – the fire pit. Keep it looking natural by creating a mismatched or skewed path.
Pepper your backyard with other forms of light. Lanterns, fairy lights and more lighting can create the atmosphere around the rest of the backyard to tie in with your fire pit. If you’re looking for something more comfortable than logs and stumps for seating, put some deck chairs around your fire pit to encourage people to relax there.
If you’ve got a large yard and you don’t want those around the firepit to be excluded from the rest of a party or too far away from the food and drinks, then consider positioning your fire pit near your alfresco area or even as an extension of it.
Got a sunken area in your yard and aren’t too keen to level it out for your fire pit? Turn it into a positive by creating a square bench space, some steps down and your fire pit in the middle on some river pebbles. It’ll feel like another room in your backyard.
