Backyard fire pits are one of the most popular of all landscaping features. They are attractive, functional and provide an outdoor gathering place. A backyard fire pit allows you to enjoy your outdoor living area year-round, even during winter.
Fire Pit Planning
To choose the right fire pit design and layout to suit your entertaining needs, think about how you will use your fire pit area long term. If you frequently host lots of outdoor parties with many guests, or want your pit to match an existing patio, consider an in-ground fire pit with a paver surround. If your fire pit will mostly be enjoyed by you and your family, or if you prefer a more rustic look, a modern fire pit built out of retaining wall blocks may be ideal. Because of the vast array of fire pit designs available, and the importance of choosing the appropriate size and location for your fire pit, be sure to consult with a landscape designer for advice and guidance.
For both safety and aesthetic reasons, we recommend having a professional design and install your fire pit. This also ensures that your fire pit is built with materials designed to withstand intense heat, which should keep it functional for many years to come.
