Inspired by the terraces of my favorite American landscapers, I have been dreaming for a while of having an outdoor fire pit too.
What is a fire pit?
The idea is to have a central receptacle (often round), in which we will make a fire to settle around and chat warmly for the evening. It is not a barbecue (even if it could become very easily), it is rather a kind of campfire so sweet that allows creating a warm atmosphere in the garden. This kind of friendly brazier is very widespread in the United States.
There are also outdoor gas fire pits which operate on gas (liquid propane) and which create a brazier effect without the disadvantages (supply of wood, smoke, ashes …) but there are also no advantages: Fire crackling, wood smell …
It is more contemporary and certainly more practical.
