Your Yard and Your Outdoor Fire Pit
Gathering around a fire is a tradition almost as old as humanity. As a species, we’ve always been drawn to the hypnotic flames and the primitive warmth of a fire. A fire can feel like the most relaxed thing in the world—but it is that way because contractors abide by strict fire safety codes.
The specific rules your fire pit needs to follow differ according to your property as well as the size and type of the fire pit you want. While propane fire pits don’t come with the risk of casting embers or sparks, there are the other complications that come from laying a gas line.
Most fire pits need to be 10 feet away from structures like your house or garage, and also need to be away from property lines that you share with neighbors. With some very rare exceptions, most fire pits require a permit to be obtained from your municipal government.
Fire pits need to be built on a fireproof base, which is why stone and brick fire pits are so popular. Wood bases can cause problems even if the actual fire is burning on a fireproof section.
Soft woods like pine and cedar may smell amazing while they’re burning, but they can spit embers more than hard woods.
