Can I use my fire pit in other seasons beside summer?

A fire pit is an excellent way to get more use out of your outdoor living area. It naturally attracts people, who love to gather round to stay warm and converse with friends. Summer nights can be chilly. In fall, hot-spiced cider around the fire pit is a great way to end a busy weekend. During the holidays, go caroling and then gather round the fire pit for a mug of mulled wine. In spring, sitting by the pit is a nice way to relax after a day in the garden.
What can I cook on an outdoor fire pit?
Yes, you can cook a variety of foods on your outdoor fire pit in Chevy Chase, MD. Let the kids loose, under supervision of course, with kabobs and hot dogs on skewers. And don’t forget the marshmallows.

Why should I hire East Coast Landscape Design to build my fire pit? Couldn’t I save money building it myself?
