Is there any better way to end a day of camping than by roasting marshmallows around the fire while telling campfire stories? There’s just something about a campfire that brings everyone together and puts you at ease while the flames flicker and fade.
The good news is that you don’t need to wait until your next camping trip to have that same sense of peace! Installing a firepit brings the campfire right to your backyard. The best thing about firepits in Kansas City is that there’s not just one design you have to choose—there are tons of options that fit all different budgets and personal tastes! Continue reading to learn all about your options for a new firepit:
- DIY paver firepit: The cheapest option if you want a firepit as soon as possible is to build one using 12” pavers from the hardware store. Keep in mind that this type of firepit won’t look as good as one installed by a pro, but it’ll get the job done.
- In-ground: Bricks or stones surrounding a hole filled with gravel might not seem like it’d look all that great, but as long as your hardscape contractor chooses the right stone, this type of firepit will impress your guests.
- Brick patio: Does your brick patio seem to be missing something? If so, consider adding a firepit. With help from a hardscape contractor, you can build a firepit right into the brick. These firepits also have covers that you can put on when you’re not huddled around the fire.
- Stacked stone: Tie your backyard place together by using the same type of stone for your firepit as you do for the rest of your hardscaping. Your hardscape contractor can help you find the perfect stones to create your new firepit.
- Firepit with seating: What’s the biggest problem when it comes to gathering around the fire? Finding seating for everyone! Luckily, that won’t be an issue if you install a firepit with built-in seating. Since this is a more complex project, you’ll definitely need the help of a hardscape contractor to complete it.
- Steel firepit: Up until now, all of the firepits we’ve mentioned have been made of some sort of stone or brick. That’s certainly not your only choice, though. Firepits made of steel add a unique, modern look to your yard while providing all the benefits of a classic firepit.
- Copper bowl: Similarly, you can also install a firepit made of copper. Not only does it provide a “wow” factor, copper also retains heat really well, so you’re sure to stay nice and cozy throughout the evening.
- Gas firepit: Firepits don’t have to be wood-burning. In fact, adding a firepit that uses gas is practically hassle-free. You won’t need to worry about the fire going out if there’s a strong breeze, and your clothes won’t get that smoky smell.
Don’t wait until the summer to install firepits in Kansas City. As long as it’s not raining or snowing, you can sit outside and reconnect with your family by the fire. Pick up the phone and give MSE Hardscape Design and Installation a call today to get started adding a firepit to your backyard!
