Should You Install a Backyard Firepit?

With the cold weather season quickly approaching, now is the time to consider installing a backyard firepit for your Cumming GA home. Your team at Atlanta Outdoor Designs is here to help you make the choice!


Am I allowed to install a firepit? 

The first thing to consider is your property’s rules and regulations regarding firepit installation. Laws typically vary from state to state, so be sure to check with your local authorities. For Georgia residents, you can check with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. Once you’ve gotten that taken care of, it’s time to get creative.


Why do I want a firepit?

It’s no question that a backyard firepit is a luxury feature to add to your home, but knowing it’s purpose will help the design process. Is your firepit going to serve as a campfire setting for kids, s’mores, and storytime? Or do you prefer it to be a more adult setting for late night wining and dining? Maybe the main purpose of your firepit is to elevate your home and add to the overall value and selling points. Whatever the case, the “why” will help in designing and building your new favorite feature.


Where will my firepit go?

Our team will happily help you to bring your dreams to life, but it helps to have an idea of what you want. If you have an outdoor kitchen, your new firepit may be the perfect addition or extension to your outdoor dinners. Or maybe you want to install a firepit as the focal point of your landscaping, perfect for hosting guests on the long winter evenings! You’ll also want to consider the size of your backyard and how much room your firepit will take up in the layout. Wherever you plan to install your latest feature, you’ll be sure to love it. 


What kind of firepit do I want?

There are a variety of routes to take once you decide to install a firepit. From propane to gel, portable or permanent, you have a lot of choices to make! Maybe you want a traditional stone or brick pit to fit your outdoor landscape, or maybe a chic glass firepit with natural gas burners is more your style. Get inspired with Home Depot’s guide.
