Guide to Building a Fire Pit in Your Backyard

The first step toward having the fire pit of your dreams is to identify the best location for it on your property. After that, you can decide on the materials you want to use to build a fire pit,  such as using fire glass or stones, choosing the hues or colors you want, and more. When selecting materials, remember the shape of the fire pit you want to create since different materials may work better for different shapes and sizes.

Fire Pits & Glass: Your New Best Friends

Fire glass is a terrific element to consider when building a new fire pit, and it is also a great way to spruce up an old one. Fire glass is available in various colors, shapes, and sizes. It is built with the help of tempered glass, allowing it to endure high temperatures without causing any damage to its color, form, or sheen. Once installed, fire glass requires low maintenance and does not emit any toxic fumes. Fire glass can also be used for both natural gas and propane fireplaces. 

Ideas for Gas Fire Pits

Propane fire pits are the most popular choice in today’s time and age because they are easy to use and ignite. The flame presence of propane fire pits is frequently reported at a stunning 50,000 BTU (British Thermal Unit). For a highly stylish, modern, and functional aesthetic, build a propane fire pit on a patio made from flagstones, and use bricks that match the color of the flagstone patio. This would also work well in the center of your backyard, away from the patio, as the focal point.

Ideas for Wood Burning Fire Pits

Wood-burning fire pits typically have large basins. Some are made with cast iron, others with steel, metal, etc. The larger the basin, the longer-lasting the fires will be. Choose stones for your wood-burning fire pit that complement the color of the bricks you build your fire pit with and the color of your home’s exterior. We not only have the bricks to build the exterior of the pit but also the stones, rocks, and pebbles to place into the pit! 

Choosing which type of fire pit for your backyard is entirely up to you. Propane fire pits are often seen in the most contemporary designs, but wood-burning fire pits offer a classic appeal with a modern twist. You could even purchase a basic fire pit and construct a structure around it, choosing from our vast collection of bricks and stones. Have a good time building your fire pit. After all, the outdoor fireplace will serve as the focal point for gatherings with friends and family.
