The Florida summer heat can be brutal, but once the sun goes down, the temperatures become pleasant! A fire pit encourages more time spent outdoors, especially at nighttime. It is a great way to gather friends and family to spend time together and cook fun campfire snacks! Not to mention, a fire pit is easy to maintain, so you can spend your time enjoying it rather than maintaining it. Wood-burning fire pits can even help deter mosquitoes and provide you with a bug-free night.
Fire pits are easy to maintain!
Investing in a fire pit is a great way to enjoy the outdoors with little to no maintenance. They are designed to be easy to use and offer a contained, safe way to enjoy a fire. Natural gas and propane fire pits are the easiest to maintain because they require no clean-up and can be turned on and off with a switch. Wood-burning fire pits are still easy to maintain, but you have the added task of occasionally cleaning ash and debris from the bowl as well as needing to gather wood and light it each time you want to start the fire, rather than just pushing a button. No matter what type of fire pit you choose, though, you’ll definitely spend more time enjoying it than you do cleaning it!
Wood-burning fire pits help deter pesky mosquitoes.
One of the biggest problems with staying out after the sun sets is all the insects that like to come out – the biggest antagonist being mosquitoes. They can cause discomfort, make being outdoors less enjoyable, and can discourage you from spending time outdoors at night. Luckily, a wood-burning fire pit can help deter mosquitoes from ruining your time outdoors! The smoke from the wood acts as a natural insect repellant. There are certain types of wood that repel mosquitoes more than others. For example, pinyon is a type of wood that is extremely repellant to mosquitoes. It also smells great and can be used for cooking! Unfortunately, natural gas and propane fire pits do not deter mosquitoes like burning wood does.
Add sage and eucalyptus to your fire pit and light some citronella candles around your guests to deter mosquitoes even more.
Enjoy some classic summer fun by using your fire pit to cook yummy snacks!
A fire pit can be more than just an aesthetic hardscape on your property! Gather your friends and family around for a relaxed night around the fire pit cooking all of the classic summertime snacks. All you need is a stick to cook things like hotdogs and marshmallows to craft the perfect s’more! If you have the equipment, you can even cook full meals such as grilled cheese, soups, corn on the cob, salmon, chicken, and so much more. The opportunities are endless when it comes to sharing good food around a campfire.
