There are many options when it comes to the size, shape and style of a fire pit. You can have a built-in fire pit installed, or you can purchase a portable one that can be moved about your yard. If opting for a built-in fire pit, you will be able to choose from a variety of outdoor finishing materials including concrete, stone and brick. And remember, fire pits do not have to be round-they can be square, L-shaped, triangular, or an entirely custom shape.

That’s why the choice of material is particularly important if you’re adding a fire pit after the backyard gathering area has already been assembled. Here, an atypical fire pit design -- a sloped-in base -- as well as the neutral color and wide top shelf help give this portable fire pit a clean-line aesthetic.
Almost everyone loves hanging out by the fire pit while lounging in a yard. Here are a few fire pit ideas that might inspire you to build or buy one.
There are few things more welcoming in an outdoor space than a fire pit. Fortunately, these amenities come in shapes and sizes to fit nearly every budget and landscape style.
