Outdoor Fire Pits: A Perfect Way to Enjoy Your Garden After Dark

July 12, 2013

Summer in Seattle is golden.  Honestly.

Do you ever have the realization that you’re exactly where you want to be, and all is right in that moment?  I call it being perfectly placed.  They’re usually fleeting, but also what makes them all the more precious.  That’s summertime in Seattle for me.  The frenetic pace of spring has passed, the air is warm, the greens are electric, the blues crystalline… it’s the perfect time to be outside, rest, enjoy our gardens and gather with friends.

I’d be hard pressed to think of a better way to slow it down a few notches and soak it all in, than to sit around an outdoor fire pit with friends and family.

 An outdoor fire pit and gathering space can be as simple as an old dump truck wheel rim turned on its side with chairs surrounding.

This same fire pit can double as a table with an old electrical spool placed on top!

It can be a refined and serene space with clean lines…

…or a natural setting with stone and wood, similar to what you’d find camping in the woods.

An outdoor fire pit can also be portable, allowing the space to be used for other activities.
