From fireplace to bowl: Setting up a fire pit on the terrace: This is what you should pay attention to

Setting up a fire pit on the patio is easy and can be inexpensive. There are numerous options that serve as a fire pit: from the classic fire bowl to the patio heater. You can read about which models are available and what safety precautions you need to pay attention to here.

You can usually place commercially available fire bowls or fire baskets that are less than one meter in diameter on the terrace or in the garden without permission. Safety is always a top priority when setting up a fire pit. Make sure there is enough distance from flammable objects such as a garden shed, trees or plants. Solid, level ground is ideal as a location for a fire pit, as this will reduce the risk of an accident occurring. You can protect yourself against flying sparks and falling embers by using a close-meshed spark guard or a fireproof base that does not transmit heat. Furthermore:

A classic fire bowl is ideal as a fire pit on the terrace because it is compact and can fit anywhere. With the optional long legs and a grill plate you can convert the fire bowl into a grill area. The fire bowl is also available in sizes between 55 and 120 centimeters.

This robust steel fire bowl is ideal for wide logs. The storage compartment for wood in the floor is particularly practical.

The slanted design of this fire bowl is a beautiful eye-catcher on the terrace or in the garden. The model is made of metal.

In addition to the fire bowl, the fire basket is also a classic among home fire pits. This model is made of black painted steel, has a practical ash tray and a poker.

This fire pit has a practical grill grate and is therefore not only suitable for relaxing by the fire, but also for eating together. The spark protection cover prevents flying sparks and therefore ensures increased safety.

Visually, this garden fireplace stands out next to fire bowls etc. If you're looking for something different from the classics, you could find it with this model. Thanks to the spark protection grille and hood, the fire is particularly well protected from wind and rain. The fire oven comes with a coal grate and poker.
