The fire has always been something especially important to humans. The anthropologists claim that it is older than its literal name itself. The teachings of the East rank it among the five major elements of the universe. And it can not be denied that fire has a particularly important effect on humans, not only because of the heat it provides to the physical body, but also because of its undisputed influence on our psyche and our emotional state.
The garden fire gives a lot of warmth and brings friends and family together
In the modern, pragmatic everyday life in which we live today, the lively, open fire hardly finds room anymore. But there is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy his warm liveliness and sociability again. A fireplace in your own garden is a wonderful opportunity for that. And even better, you can build them on your own. We show you some inspiring examples.
Fire pit in your own garden is very romantic
An open fire place in the garden absolutely needs a lot of free space to unfold its beauty. That's why it's important to choose a larger space so you can sit with friends and family over a fire when it's on fire. The risk of burning should be considered when planning, later also when building the fire place.
Although there are not as many models of open fireplaces as other gardening elements, there are also a few different variants of the design. One possibility is to build a so-called bed for the fire in the form of a bowl. This bed is built directly into the floor, which carries some disadvantages. In the rain, for example, a fire bed fills with water. It also makes the fire appear more decorative, thereby affecting its full splendor.

A better variant is to build the fire bed with the help of bricks or stones - to about 40 - 60 cm. over the ground. The height of the fireplace depends very much on the design and size of the chosen garden furniture.
Some outdoor fireplaces have a roof that serves to protect against fire and better dissipate smoke.
It is not that complicated to build an open fire place in your own garden. All you need is a bigger garden, a bit of creativity and a lot of DIY fun!
