If you are going to install a fire pit, make sure you take proper safety precautions. This includes keeping any seating a safe distance from the fire. This will help prevent injuries from direct flames or sparks escaping the bowl. It is also a good idea to keep a few fire extinguishing materials on hand in case of any emergencies.
Another consideration is to be mindful of any local burn ordinances or air quality issues. This is especially important for wood-fueled pits. It is a good idea to look into manufactured fire logs or other fuel options that are better for the environment and local air quality. You should also make sure your fire pit is in a place that is protected from windy conditions.
