Stone firepit in front of an evening sky

Your home is more than just your indoor living spaces. Your home’s yard is an often untapped resource for family gatherings or weekend get-togethers with friends, neighbors, or coworkers. While a well-maintained lawn looks great, it’s nice to have amenities to transform your yard or patio into a personal oasis where you can celebrate throughout the year.

One such amenity is a fire pit. B&B Custom Pools is the place to go if you want to start making more memories by adding a fire pit to your outdoor living space. Learn more about the benefits of adding a fire pit to your patio from B&B Custom Pools.

Why Choose a Fire Pit?

Adding a feature to your outdoor area is always exciting, but fire pits are sure to make your space the place to be. Aside from their durable yet beautiful appearance and the dazzling glow of the flames, fire pits offer many advantages, including:


Fire pits make a great addition to a patio space or as a standalone feature in the middle of a back or side yard. They create an exciting outdoor entertaining area great for parties, yet can also foster a romantic space you can share with your partner.


Having a warm fire pit in your outdoor living space means you’ll simply get more use out of your yard. Whether you want to gather with friends after the sun has gone down or want to squeeze in more time outside as the weather begins to get cooler, a fire pit provides the lighting and warmth you need to enjoy this time.

Cooking Space

One of the joys of outdoor living is eating under the setting sun or stars, and fire pits let you grill meats over open flames or roast marshmallows to perfection for S’mores. They even make a nice addition to an outdoor kitchen, providing ambiance for family and friends to kick back and relax while eating their meals. 


You may not live at your current home forever, so it’s important to consider how home improvement projects will affect your home’s resale value. Fire pits are a smart choice because they offer an exciting space with little to no maintenance, which is sure to intrigue prospective buyers.

Types of Fire Pits

Not all fire pits are created equal, but the versatility of these outdoor features makes them even more enticing. From compact fire bowls to custom, built-in creations, there’s something for everyone and every budget. You can even choose between different fuel types.

Wood-burning fire pits offer the feel of a campfire and the smell and sounds to match. Propane fire pits work great as a centerpiece in your space and don’t require you to keep adding wood. Natural gas fire pits require a natural gas line but can be installed on decks and offer convenient operation. Lastly, gel fuel fire pits are clean-burning and often portable to suit your needs.
