First of all, by rustic stone I don’t mean that real natural stone has been used in the construction of these fire pits but rather, a blend of materials have been used to mimic the appearance of real natural for that attractive rustic appearance. They not only look like real stone fire pits, they also have the durability characteristics of natural stone as well.
In case you’re looking to buy a fire pit, here are reason why a rustic stone fire pit may just be what you need;
Benefits of rustic stone fire pits
They are durable: Made from such materials as Envirostone, fiber glass and steel rustic stone fire pits are guaranteed to be durable and capable of withstanding the elements. (Within limits of course)
Environment friendly: The textured stone-like and authentic-like rustic appearance blends well with the environment.
Safe to use on outdoor structures: Rustic stone fire pits and gas fire pits in general can be used on decks and in outdoor structures such as a pergolas and gazebos. As long as you follow the safety rules and precautions regarding fire handling, there is really nothing to worry about. Wood burning fire pits can also be used on decks and outdoor structure but you must use a fire pit spark screen to contain the flying embers. Also, if your floor is not high temperature tolerant , a fire pit pad or fire pit deck protector/heat shield, should be used.
Used as tables: As you can see below, these rustic stone fire pits come with extra wide rim edges that you can use to place your drinks, snacks or even prop your feet
Easy to use: Ease of use is one of the major reasons why people nowadays prefer gas fire pits over wood burning fire pits. Starting a fire is easy at the push of an electronic button, which you can adjust as opposed to starting fires from scratch with wood and matches.
Decorative: A rustic stone fire pit is bound to transform the appearance of a patio, more so if you take the time to appropriately color coordinate and decorate the patio area around your fire pit.
Complement heaters: If your heater is not producing as much heat as you would like it too, a fire pit would produce that extra heat that you need.
Clean-burning flames: Another major plus for the gas fire pits is the absence of soot, smoke and ashes.
