From simple round or square shaped pits to multi-level stone designs, the collection we offer you for guidance will prove useful when you’re in lack of fresh and unique ideas.

Grab some inspiration from the awesome collection we provide you with and good luck building your own DIY fire pit. Your outdoor events will have a new and improved ambience from now on.
Adding a fire pit as part of your landscaping will extend the enjoyment of your backyard for you and your guests. They provide warmth, light, a cooking source, and ambiance, making them a natural gathering spot for socializing, entertaining, and relaxation. People are drawn to the campfire-like atmosphere, and before you know it, there will be story-telling and laughter. A fire pit can also serve as an important focal point in your outdoor landscape design. When placed where it can be easily seen from your interior living space, it can be enjoyed from the indoors as well.
The wide range of portable fire pit options means it’s easy (and not overly expensive) to try one out before diving into a permanent location or design. However, make sure to measure the fire pit space available and review existing details in your home and furniture to help guide your purchase. Here, the pretty curve in the chairs as well as the richly finished color supplied easy guidance for the choice of focal point fire pit. Another welcome detail: The outdoor space includes a clever nook for stashing needed firewood.
An above-ground pit becomes a focal point of your outdoor living design. Be sure and place it where it balances with other large design elements. A gas fire pit can be placed just about anywhere, but a wood-burning pit will need to be at least 10 feet away from any structure. Before putting in a permanent fire pit, check for wind patterns that may cause potential smoke issues. Also, remember to leave ample room for seating around the pit.
