Fire Pit Styles

Your fire pit is a special feature and it’s important that it matches your design aesthetic and personality. That’s why at Nicolock Paving Stones we sell stone fire pits like the Encore Fire Pit made with fire pit pavers as well as stainless steel smokeless wood fire pits, hanging fire pits and contemporary fire bowls. Our huge selection of styles ensures there’s a fire pit for every outdoor living area when you shop at Nicolock Paving Stones.

Fire Pit Fuel

Fire pits use wood, gas or propane as their fuel sources. The type of fuel your fire pit will use will depend on which fire pit you choose. While wood-burning fire pits are great for outdoor cooking and give the most heat (along with a great crackling sound), propane or gas fire pits offer unparalleled ease of use and no cleanup. Think about the type of fuel you want to use when shopping for a new paver fire pit to ensure the best fit.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the safety considerations when using a fire pit?

When using a fire pit, keeping the area around the fire free of debris and combustible materials such as leaves or paper is important. Additionally, always ensure that the fire is supervised by an adult at all times and that any children in the vicinity are kept away from the flames.

What type of fuel is best for my fire pit?

The best type of fuel for a fire pit would depend on what you plan to use it for; generally, wood is recommended for most outdoor fire pits, but charcoal can also be used if desired. Select models may use wood pellets or other specialty fuels.

What type of fire pit gives off the most heat?

Wood-burning fire pits give off the most heat. Specifically, wood-burning fire pits that sit low to the ground and feature openings in the sides. Wood burns hotter than gas, making it a better choice for producing heat.

How do I extinguish a fire in my fire pit safely?

To extinguish a fire in your fire pit safely, douse it with plenty of water until no smoke or embers remain visible. Allow the ashes to cool completely before disposing of them properly.

Are there any restrictions on using a fire pit in my area?

It’s possible that there may be restrictions on using a fire pit in certain areas depending on local laws and regulations; check with your local municipality for more information about this. Additionally, using a fire pit may be prohibited during droughts and under certain weather conditions.

How can I maintain and clean my fire pit regularly?

To maintain and clean your fire pit regularly, scrape out any remaining ash buildup after each use and cover it with a waterproof tarp when not in use to prevent rusting or other damage caused by weather exposure. Consult your owner’s manual for additional maintenance recommendations.
