Fire Bowls, Baskets and Pits
If you’re looking for your heater to also be a feature of your garden, then a fire pit may just be the thing. This is a fire contained in a free-standing, decorative basket or bowl elevated with legs. They too come in a vast array of styles and finishes, and many also include safety features which are ideal if you’re concerned about an open fire around small children and pets.
The most basic version are fire baskets, which are steel or iron baskets in which to burn wood or coal. Most come with a grill, and it’s also wise to check whether a tray is supplied which can collect the fallen embers and ash, making cleaning up a lot easier.
If you’re looking for something slightly more decorative, then a fire bowl may be just the thing. These are a lot more contained, and usually, come with a lid or insert, making them perhaps slightly safer.
All will usually come with grills, meaning they can make a stylish alternative to the standard barbecue. What’s great about them is that they are generally small and lightweight, making them ideal to stick in the back of the car if you’re taking a trip to the beach or going camping.
