An affordable patio accent to liven up your backyard is a fire pit. Whether you choose wood burning or gas, the material options are endless.
A more rustic look is black basalt. Hand-selected and artfully stacked this choice is the least expensive.
For a more formal look you can upgrade to a pre-cut natural rock fascia over a cinder block structure. Also available is a faux rock fascia.
We can install fire brick on the inside or a less expensive option is to use black colored concrete on the inside edges.
This attractive idea will inspire the family to gather ’round the ‘campfire’ for smores and lively conversation. An outdoor fireplace is more grandiose option for keeping warm on chilly nights. These structures can be built to be used for cooking in addition to warmth.
A permit will be required if you are choosing gas as the form of heat. A licensed gas contractor will be needed for the connection. Wood burning fire pits may not require a permit, but you may need approval from your HOA. Check with your city or county to determine what they require prior to construction.
