Some of you reading this are probably skeptical about how to fireproof your outdoor furniture in a garden. While it is true you cannot make all of it invulnerable to flames. You would be right. However you can do the next best thing and make the entire area where any fire would be produced resistant to flames. Doing this can be easier than you might have ever realized and we’ll talk about your options with this as well. You may get some new, energetic ideas for your own setting as well.
The first thing to realize when you think about how you can do this in your own home or business is the fact that we can make practically anything resistant to fire in the modern day. As such we have seen pieces pick up from tables to chairs. We even have many decorative items which look like they could easily catch on fire but are actually made artificially so that they will not.
Fire Pit Tables are a fine addition as long as they are placed on a small stone structure or other piece which cannot be ignited easily. In fact that is the key to creating a fireproof garden, creating safe areas in which flame cannot quickly ignite anything around people. Decoration is the key to this since you can easily surround the flame with furniture that encloses and protects people. It is also quite easy to do this.
So what pieces do you use? Tables, chairs and even tents. That is right there are even tents that can stand up to flames now and they make for a somewhat unusual decoration that is actually very fun. Tents are in style and they can be a great way to give your guests a different sort of place to sit which takes them out of the boring routine of most gatherings. Use whatever flame source you have as a conversation piece, as it was intended, and surround it with seating.
As for plants you can put some artificial ones closer to the flames. Putting real ones nearby is a mistake as you could see all your outdoor furniture and work go up in flames. Do not be foolhardy because any guest could make a mistake and send it toppling into an area that destroys your setting. You always have to keep the possibility in mind when you are using any sort of open flame.
Also remember that some types of outdoor furniture are naturally more or less flammable. Chemically treated pieces of a low quality could ignite from a simple candle. A few blends of wicker can take quite a bit of heat, even standing up to open flame at times, before they could ever catch on fire. So look into these when you are making your first choices in order to save yourself time and possibly heartache down the road.
Making sure that everyone follows proper safety guidelines around the flame is important as well. No drinks or other flammable items should be near it. Stay safe.
