Fireplaces in the garden promote coziness and create atmosphere. On colder evenings or in the cool season, they also provide warmth.

Fire bowls (1) consist of a shell with a large opening to the top, which provides oxygen to the embers. Since the bowls emit a lot of heat, care should be taken to provide a fireproof and insensitive base.

As fire basket (2) are often called fireplaces that have numerous recesses that allow a good air supply, so that the fire can burn well.

However, if small pieces of embers fall out, the openings are a source of danger. Therefore, be sure to make sure that the base is fireproof and of a certain size. When you purchase a fire basket, matching metal sheets are often available that can be placed underneath to protect against falling embers.

Some manufacturers offer accessories for fire baskets or fire bowls. With an ember or grill grate, the fire pit can thus be converted into a barbecue area.
