Even though fire can no longer claim the same importance in our lives that it commanded from our predecessors, it still retains something of its primordial appeal. Perhaps it is the beautiful visuals of its ever-changing existence or perhaps it is the storied relationship between home and hearth. Whatever the cause, backyard firepits are sure to please the homeowners fortunate enough to have them on their premises.
If you are interested in learning more about how firepits can impress, then you should consider the example of the one found in Lakefront Splendor. There is nothing about it that has not been chosen to strengthen the firepits’ symbolic significance with symmetry. Something that can be seen in how the firepit is situated in the center of a square-shaped cutout, surrounded by a square-shaped table that is surrounded in turn by eight chairs positioned two to each of the table’s four sides.
This pleasing symmetry is both a contrast and a complement to the rest of the home’s backyard. The cool hardscape of the firepit stands out in contrast to the ornamental plants that cover much of its surroundings, even while its angular lines serve to complement the greenery’s orderly and well-maintained appearance. Likewise, the firepit both contrasts and complements the nearby pool, which also sits in a four-sided enclosure.
That said, this particular firepit is also as safe and secure to use as backyard firepits should be. The presence of the table ensure that people cannot hurt themselves by proximity to the fire. Similarly, the stone tiles in the immediate surroundings serve to keep potentially flammable greenery at a distance where sparks cannot reach. Combined, these characteristics make this particular firepit as practical as it is pleasing to the senses.
