Fire Pits

Fire pits warm the heart.

The controlled use of fire has been a fundamental cultural element since the dawn of humanity. Fire brought warmth, protection from predators, and enabled cooking. More importantly, socializing around a campfire was key to creating strong community bounds. Michael Chazan, a paleolithic archaeologist at the University of Toronto, speculates, "Socializing around a campfire might actually be an essential aspect of what makes us human."1

Our modern society, with technology unimaginable to ancient man, has little practical use for fire pits, yet, some primordial urge continues to draw us to them. Long after fireplaces were necessary for warmth, we continue to include them as a key feature and attraction in our homes. Unfortunately, until recently, gathering around a campfire was limited to summer camping trips. Many of us have fond memories of key life moments that occurred around a campfire. The open conversation, heartfelt laughter and story-telling while gathered around dancing flames has initiated a growing trend of bringing the campfire to your backyard. Fire pits have become one of the most cherished features of modern landscaping.

The evolution of campfire to modern fire pit is dramatic. Stones set in a rugged circle has transformed into works of art as varied as our personalities – from an artistically primitive look using natural stone to raised masonry marvels, fire pits are a featured landscape attraction. Combined with a concrete, paver or flagstone patio and surrounded by boulder benches or dry stack wall seating a fire pit is guaranteed to become the most desired hang-out place for family and friends. After all, socializing around a campfire is an essential aspect of what makes us human.
