Fired Up!

Spring is just around the corner and a perfect time to start considering your outdoor space. No longer will a wood deck and a grill do for many homeowners wanting to enjoy their backyard. These days, accessorizing means adding amenities like custom concrete, outdoor kitchens, and fire pits that crackle and glow. Fire pits are a huge trend with new custom homes but can be a great addition to your existing landscaping. There is no better time than a cool spring night to sit around the warm radiance of a real wood burning fire. Things to consider while researching your fire pit addition:


What materials you want to use to construct your fire pit? Natural stone is beautiful, and concrete is a great way to achieve that look. You can miss match patterns and textures of your patio and firepit.


What will you use as the foundation to your fire pit? Summit Concrete recommends pouring concrete footers as the groundwork, so that your patio does not crack under the weight of the walls surrounding the pit.


Where do you want to place your fire pit? Summit Concrete recommends at least 10 feet from your home and other flammable structures such as fences and low tree branches.


Who do you want to call for design ideas and budgeting? Summit Concrete would love to assist the design and construction of your new outdoor firescape.
