Probably the most traditional choice for fire pit seating are Adirondack chairs — and for good reason. They’re comfortable, sit low to the ground and have wide arm rests to hold a drink or plate of food.
How many chairs should be around a fire pit?
How Many Chairs Can You Have Around a Fire Pit? For a wood-burning fire pit, you can have between two and six large chairs. For a gas fire pit, two to four chairs are perfect.
What is the best base for a fire pit?
Hard rocks like granite, marble, or slate are much denser, and therefore less likely to absorb water and explode when exposed to heat. Other rocks that are safe to use around and in your fire pit include fire-rate brick, lava glass, lava rocks, and poured concrete.
Can you use any sand in a fire pit?
Do you? Don’t put sand in it! It just holds any moisture that may get in. Drill holes in the bottom and line bottom with chunks of fire brick or lava rock.
How do I get more heat from my fire pit?
You can get more heat from your fire pit by increasing the flame height, adding a lot of lava rocks to your fire pit, and enclosing the area surrounded by your fire pit.
