    Cue the new B&M firepit range. The discount retailer has just launched a selection of fire pits, log burners and chimineas, with prices starting from as little as £25. When the brand shared an image of its Miami log burner on Facebook recently, the post received over a whopping 9,000 comments and was shared over 600 times!

    We’ll start with this strong and sturdy metal design, with its square frame making a neat addition to any garden. The steel mesh guard makes it a good model if you have little ones, for the safety aspect, and its £50 price tag includes a fire stick, too.

    A traditional-looking chiminea is a great way to keep you warm outside and the Rimini certainly makes a stylish statement. Made from clay and in a flecked grey finish, we think it’s a bargain at just £35.

    This modern Miami log burner is perfect for urban gardens and patios alike, with a mesh design that allows for 360-degree heat distribution. It’s not the cheapest of the range, but it’s still a great price.

    We’ve shown you just five of the 10 designs on offer, but if you want to snap one up you’ll have to be quick and hotfoot it to your nearest B&M store. Just be careful where you place your firepit, though, as decking, grass and uneven areas are all big no-nos!
