The choice of materials can make your fire pit feel as though it is a seamless extension of your existing landscape design. Although the larger paving stones on this elegant and Mediterranean-style patio gave way to smaller version in the fire pit, the color palette remains mostly the same, helping preserve cohesion.
A fire pit or a fire hole can vary from a pit dug in the ground to an elaborate gas burning structure of stone, brick, and metal. The common feature of fire pits is that they are designed to contain fire and prevent it from spreading.
Many cultures, particularly nomadic ones would cut the turf above the fire-pit in a turf cutting ceremony, replacing the turf afterwards to hide any evidence of the fire. Elements of this ceremony remain in traditional youth organizations such as the Woodcraft Folk.
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.
