Zaugelnde flames, blazing embers: fire fascinates and is the warming center of every gregarious garden tour. In late summer and autumn you can still enjoy some evening hours outdoors in the flickering light. Do not ignite the fire on the ground!
The right location
Elegant fire bowl "Calcutta" with antique finish. To the product
In the garden, a fire bowl or a fire basket fit better than a campfire, and the baskets and bowls give the flames and embers a secure frame. Choose a sheltered place for your fireplace, which should be as far away as possible from the neighbor, because smoke can not be completely avoided. An insensitive base made of stone is best, because even closed bowls radiate heat down. So do not just put fire bowls in the grass, that will cause burn marks.
Make rules by the fire
Only burn well-dried, untreated wood. Logs of deciduous trees contain no resin and therefore hardly sparks. The best is beech wood, which brings long lasting glow. Resist the temptation to immediately dispose of a few garden waste such as leaves or pruning. That only smokes and is usually forbidden. Completely unproblematic with regard to smoke development are fuels such as fuel gel or ethanol. Small fire games, which are operated with it, also fit on the table and can be used on the balcony and terrace.
In fire baskets the wood burns better than in trays, because the oxygen also reaches the embers from below. Catch falling embers by placing a metal plate underneath.
Atmospheric and practical
The lantern "Obelix" by zone Denmark is made of concrete and glass. To the product
Over some baskets you can put a rust and use the fire place for grilling and cooking. In addition, torches, lanterns and candles provide atmospheric lighting. Beautiful lanterns you can tinker easily, quickly and cheaply. All you need is old preserving jars, the bottom of which you fill with clean sand or a few nice stones and in which you put tealights: The fire magic is done. For a special spectacle on the table you can take care by filling a tall, narrow glass one-third with stones. There you put a candle in and then put this glass in a larger, water-filled glass. The water level should close just below the inner glass. Decorate the "candle under water" as you like.
A large selection of garden lighting can be found in our shop.
