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.

Choosing the best fire pit type for your needs (built-in, prefab or portable). How to size your fire pit based on how much space is available, how many guests you expect to entertain, and the height and arrangement of your outdoor seating.
Although fire pits are often a central part of backyards, portable versions are good options for encouraging more secluded seating nooks. Here, a change in material underfoot -- from gravel to pavers -- marks the quiet square. It is just big enough for a cozy sofa and chair as well as the central fire pit.
Many homeowners are using fire pits for warmth, entertainment and cooking or as focal points for an outdoor living space. Some recent trends have included the modification of compression tank ends to create a fire bowl that can be placed in the ground or on legs.
