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.
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.
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.
Above-ground fire pits can be constructed from a variety of materials. The most popular options are brick, natural stone and concrete blocks, such as Belgard retaining wall products. Although design options are endless, most fire pits are either round or square. One reason has to do with the shape of standard fire pit liners.
