Where You Can and Cannot Put a Fire Pit Table

If you have a wood burning fire pit, a more traditional model, then you are somewhat limited as to where you can place it. More specifically, a wood burning fire pit needs to be placed on thick concrete in order to ensure the surrounding area does not become too hot and the flames do not spread. If you have a portable wood burning fire pit, it is most likely made from some sort of metal or concrete. No matter where it is placed, whether it be a deck or grass, some sort of stone or concrete needs to be placed underneath.

With a fire pit that uses liquid propane, natural gas, or any other alternative fuel, you have more options as to where you can put the unit. Out of these three fuel options, natural gas fire pits get the hottest and they are still safe to use on any medium. If you choose to put your fire pit table on your lawn, then there is very little to worry about. The same goes with a stone deck or platform.

If you have a wood or some sort of composite deck, then there are certain things you should consider. Specifically, the strength of your deck. Although a gas fire pit is safe to be put on a deck in terms of the heat not burning the deck, a fire pit can be very heavy. Therefore, you should check how heavy the fire pit you are interested in purchasing is and how much weight your wood deck can actually hold.
