Zen 36 Fire Bowl on Holmes Family Rescue

Mike Holmes has been making it right for years, and now it’s a family affair. Mike’s daughter Sherry and son Michael share their own dedication and expertise as they join forces to rescue homeowners from botched construction jobs and renovation fatigue.

Our Zen 36 Fire Bowl is featured on Episode 7 of HGTV Holmes Family Rescue for a backyard transformation. Let’s walk through the details of this project with us!

Project Details

On this episode, homeowners Lori and Sonja bought their forever home in the country, only to have their dreams watered down by endless leaks in the basement. Mike, Michael, and Sherry expose water pooling issues all around the house that have caused dangerous walkways, but they’re determined to give this couple the backyard oasis they always envisioned. Meanwhile, foster mom Bernadine finally gets the stamp of approval to welcome children into her now safe and beautiful home.
To transform the backyard, Mike selected our Zen 36 Fire bowl to be the centerpiece. This beautiful fire bowl was configured as a 60K BTU unit in the Chalk Color. Measuring 36″ Round and 18″H this firepit is the perfect centerpiece.

How to choose a perfect fire bowl for your backyard

Choosing the perfect outdoor fire bowl for your backyard can be a rewarding endeavor, enhancing both the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your outdoor space. Here are some key factors to consider when making this important decision.

Size and Space

Begin by assessing the available space in your backyard. The size of your fire bowl should complement the area without overwhelming it. Consider the proximity to seating areas and other features.

Design and Style

Concrete fire bowls come in a variety of designs and styles, from modern and minimalist to rustic and traditional. Select one that harmonizes with your backyard’s overall theme and your personal taste.

Fuel Source

Decide whether you prefer a wood-burning, natural gas, or propane fire bowl. Each has its advantages; wood-burning bowls offer a classic, smoky ambiance, while gas options are more convenient and cleaner.

Materials and Durability

Concrete fire bowls are known for their durability, but pay attention to the quality of the concrete and any additional coatings or finishes to ensure long-lasting performance.

Safety Features

Prioritize safety by checking for features like spark screens, protective lids, or childproofing elements, especially if you have young children or pets.

Installation and Maintenance

Consider the ease of installation and ongoing maintenance requirements. Gas fire bowls may require a professional installation, while wood-burning ones need regular cleaning and ash removal.


Explore available accessories like cooking grates, log racks, or glass wind guards to customize your fire bowl for your specific needs.

Handling & Delivery

It is recommended that you choose a concrete firepit that is engineered with proper weight distribution. This way, you can place it on your deck or move it around your patio via a two-man lift. You can change up your outdoor layout with ease. Don’t forget about this when you are buying a new concrete firepit.

Consider how your new concrete firepit will be delivered and installed. Will it be shipped securely? You may need help with set-up if the desired location is hard to access. If you are purchasing a gas or propane fire pit, you may require the services of a gas fitter to safely connect the appliance.
