Fire Pit 9When you incorporate a fire pit into your landscape design, you add another detail to your backyard that can make it easier to entertain in your space. Keep reading for some fire pit design ideas that can instantly enhance your exterior design.

A Rectangular Fire Box

If you want to set up a seating area around your fire pit, you should choose an option like a rectangular firebox. The fire pit serves as the anchor for the seating styles that you choose. Whether you want an L-shaped outdoor sofa or a lot of comfortable chairs, this feature makes it easy to achieve your ideal outdoor aesthetic.

A Covered Fire Pit

Choose a covered fire pit to ensure that you can sit around this feature and enjoy the warmth of the fire no matter what is happening with the weather. The gazebo also creates a new layer of design for your outdoor area.

A Stone Fire Pit

Complement the rest of the features in your hardscape by choosing a stone fire pit. The natural appeal of this accessory helps you create a visually stimulating outdoor area that is perfect for entertaining anyone from a single friend to a party full of people.

A Large, Square Fire Pit

Use the fire pit as the focal point of your entire yard by choosing a large, square design. When a fire pit like this sits in the center of your backyard, it is easy to choose the perfect landscape design to go around it.

Round Firepit

For a less formal design, round firepits work well, just pull up your chairs and enjoy the warmth.


You can choose to have flame fueled by natural gas, propane or wood. For the gas and propane option, you can get round or square burners. You can cover the burner with lava (cinder) rocks or beautiful colored glass.
