Should you find your fire pit needs defined by something a little bigger than the usual, you've come to the right place. These are the large fire pits, the big ones, the top dogs, the fire pits that stand a little taller above the rest because they're a little taller than the rest. Take a look below to find the right large fire pit for you, then sit back in warmth fit for royalty. Or just large groups of friends or family.
For private gardens, a large fire pit is usually anything over 80cm diameter. While extra large fire pits over 1metre are available, these tend to be used on a much more commercial basis for outdoor venues rather than for large, private social gatherings.
Which fire pits give off the most heat?
It stands to reason that the larger a fire pit is, the more heat it will generate. While there’s a certain logic to this, generating heat is more about the substance that you choose to burn. For this reason, wood fire pits give off the most heat, producing a larger fire than a gas burner.
What size fire can I have in my garden?
Typically there are no laws against householders having a fire pit, bonfire or barbeque in their own backyards and gardens. Government guidance suggests that you shouldn’t cause a regular nuisance to neighbours, and there are two key laws that limit the size of a fire.
Smoke from the fire must not drift over public roads and impede visibility
Fire must not be generated using substances that in turn generate dangerous fumes
Common sense and being aware of how your fire may affect your neighbours should always be considered when burning a fire on private property. In some areas there may be bylaws that say otherwise, so always check with your local authority if you have concerns about the size of a fire in your backyard or garden.
