There’s nothing to warm the conversation and set a comfortable mood like a well placed fire pit. People instinctively gather round the warmth and hypnotic movement of an open flame. Placed near a pool or fountain, or at the edge of a garden patio overlooking a distant vista, and you have a perfect meeting place for friends to relax and share the moment with one another, or perhaps get their appetites ready for a good meal with a glass of wine with appetizers. A fire pit can be something as simple as a gathering of stones, like a small camp fire near a flower bed or just off the edge of a patio, or perhaps nestled at the base of a larger stone boulder. It can also be a more elaborate or robust feature with a hearty open fire surrounded by custom stone work. Placement in conjunction with a water feature creates a “fire fountain” where the dancing life of the fire element can seem to emerge miraculously from a stone setting within a water fountain. The light reflects and glimmers off the water, and the effect can be mesmerizing!
