Does it matter what type of wood I burn in my outdoor firepit?
We recommended that you burn dry, seasoned hardwood in any wood-burning outdoor firepit. Dry, well-seasoned hardwoods will burn hotter, more completely, and create less smoke. Nobody wants to sit in the garden with a cloud of smoke
How safe is my heater to use?
No matter which type of firepit suits you and your family rest assured we only purchase firepits with certified guarantees and all firepits and heaters come with an instruction manual.
