Fire pits are a quick and easy way to bring families together in the beautiful outdoor weather. Depending on the kind of paver you use to build them, they can look rustic, classic, or modern and sleek—Savon Paver’s specialty style. They also can be either gas-powered or wood-burning. So what’s right for your backyard?
First, always check your local HOA or community bylaws to make sure fire pits are permitted. As a veteran of San Diego county construction, Savon Pavers owner Jamie Valdez can make sure your fire pit follows all county fire feature regulations.
In general, gas-powered fire pits allow for more control of the size of the fire and are easier to start and stop. However, wood-burning fire pits can foster larger fires and allow for more involvement in caring for the fire.
If you prefer a wood-burning fire pit, Savon Pavers can advise you on the best placement of your fire pit, avoiding wind-channeled areas and proximity to foliage or structures.
