San Diego home and business owners enjoy the beauty and benefit of a year-round climate that encourages outdoor living.  Our area is blessed with naturally stunning landscapes and mild weather all year long.  It is only logical to take advantage of this good fortune and spend a portion of our time outside.  While this is easy to do in the daytime, in the evening, or during chilly weather it may be less enjoyable. 

This is where fire comes in!  An outdoor fire pit can create the atmosphere and warmth you need to enjoy your yard year-round.  Juniper Landscape Company offers many options when it comes to building fire pits that will allow you to expand your outdoor living space and relax at the end of the day in comfort, no matter what the weather.

What Types of Fire Pits Are Available?

Fire pits can be created from a variety of materials and run on several different types of fuels.

Fire pit materials include:

  • Many fire pits are made of metal with various finishes.  These fire pits are not only beautiful but are impervious to the fire’s heat, making them extremely durable.  You can choose a wide range of finishes to match your décor, including bronze, steel aluminum, and iron.
  • New concrete fire pits are becoming very popular for their beauty and durability.  Concrete can be finished in any number of colors, making it easy to transform your fire pit into a statement piece.
  • Natural stone. A beautiful stone fire pit can blend into the natural landscape or stand alone as a testament to your great landscape design.  Stone is often used to dress the outside of a metal fire pit, giving you the durability of metal with the beauty of natural elements.

Your fire pit can operate on several types of fuel, including:

  • Propane is one of the top choices for fire pits because it is easy to obtain and can be piped directly from a large tank or fed from a smaller, concealed tank that can be changed out as needed.  Propane is clean-burning and relatively inexpensive.
  • Natural gas. Like propane, natural gas if also a great choice for your fire pit if it is available at your site.  Both propane and natural gas fire pits offer a wide choice of flame patterns and accessories such as glass beads to allow you to create the perfect mood with your fire.
  • Some people prefer the old-fashioned ambiance of a wood fire.  Wood fire pits can be the most cost-effective to use over long periods of time, but they do put off smoke, so it is important to understand your local regulations and to consider environmental issues when using them.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
