Over time, a patio can become a little bit drab and in need of a lift. If you choose a well-designed fire pit, it can become the new centerpiece of your patio. All you need to do is spend some time checking out what's available so that you can buy the right fire pit to complement your patio.
In the Northeastern US, most suggest using at least a 4-6 inch base of crushed stone, and even up to 7 inches is recommended due to harsh winter weather. For brick pavers, this means that you'll need to dig to about 9" depth, since the pavers are 2 inches in height. Since this is a lot of digging, it may be one of the primary reasons to hire a landscape company.
Another popular outdoor heating option if the fire pit. Fire pits typically burn wood. However, there are also LPG powered fire pits as well. Both provide a real flame which can provide warmth and ambience to your outdoor setting.
If you need something cozy for an intimate dinner under the stars, you'll find a number of table top patio heaters available. Typically if you are looking to warm a large area like a covered patio, you should look at the freestanding models. If you have a really large space to warm, you'll also find a number of energy efficient commercial grade patio heaters with propane, natural gas, and electric type fuel sources.
