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.
For very narrow landscape spaces, a full circle may not be feasible for a fire pit. That’s OK: Like so much else in our homes, fire pits very much adapt to our personalized style as well as our space restrictions. This half-circle fits neatly into a sloping space that’s not deep enough to accommodate any wider diameter.
Loose and casual, the distinctive design of this fire pit makes it feel as though it springs naturally from the paved patio area. Although the fire pit is a central part of the secluded backyard, the homeowners tucked it in a seating corner, surrounding it with benches and chairs to better manage the main traffic flow in the landscape.
How local building codes may impact where you can locate your fire pit as well as when you can use it and what types of wood you can burn. The cost ranges for various types of fire pits and how to choose the right style for your budget.
