The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury - Fire Pits

Porches, decks, patios and outdoor kitchens — the backyard is where the party’s happening for homeowners in and around Sudbury, MA. In fact, the trend toward reimagining backyard spaces has gotten so strong that there’s a term for it: Backyarding.

The winter is traditionally fireplace season, but in the last few years homeowners have been increasingly adding fireplaces and firepits outdoors.

If you’re looking for a small, movable fire pit, look for a steel bowl-shaped one that is raised off the ground. These are typically wood-burning fire pits and often come with a screen cover to prevent embers from burning your guests. These are the closest to a backyard campfire you can get.

A fire bowl is similar to a firepit, but it is often connected to an external fuel source like a propane tank. These are usually small and designed to be portable, while offering convenience and minimal cleanup.

A fire pit table is a non-portable fire bowl built into or around a table. It has a dedicated gas line or a propane tank hidden inside and is not designed to be moved.
