 Starting your Calgary Landscaping sooner than later has some obvious benefits, the biggest and most obvious being  that you’ll have more time in the season to enjoy your new look before our harsh winters roll around. Another thing to consider is that fire pit you’ve always wanted! Did you know that you could cut your use fairly short if the summer becomes too dry and hot, the City of Calgary sometimes imposes fire bans. There’s really no way around these bylaws, but why not get ahead of the game and start your summer early! At Aurora we pride ourselves on staying current with Bylaws and regulations for fire pits, if you currently have a fire pit, make sure that it abides by all City of Calgary regulations to avoid hefty fines.

Here’s a small excerpt from the cities fire pit regulations:

All fires must be:

  • In a fire pit or receptacle constructed of non-combustible material.
  • In a fire pit built into the bare ground or set upon non-combustible material such as brick or stone (if not in a receptacle).
  • Not within 2 metres of the property line, building or fence, or beneath any trees or branches (or other combustible materials).
  • Kept to a reasonable size (under 1 metre both height and width) so the fire, embers, sparks or dense smoke do not endanger anyone or cause a nuisance on any neighbouring properties.
  • Fully supervised at all times and may be started beginning at 10 a.m.
  • Fully extinguished by 1 a.m.
