Gorgeous Backyard Fire Pit Design and Installation
An outdoor fireplace or fire pit is an enviable landscape design feature for Austin evenings. Dry off after an evening swim, stay cozy warm while watching the dancing flames, roast marshmallows, and invite friends over for socializing.
A fire pit is witness to laughter, story-telling, and therapeutic retreats after a long day. No need to wait until you're camping or a guest at someone else's home with a fire pit. They are an inexpensive ambiance you can own in the backyard for entertaining or relaxing.
Choose Your Fire Pit Style
First, you'll want to decide between wood, gas, or propane as a fuel source. Gas and propane fire pits offer a range of ignition systems, burner pan shapes, and flame patterns. If you choose wood, be sure to consider where and how you'll store it so as not to attract pests and to keep the wood dry.
Next, decide on a shape from round to square, hexagonal to rectangle. Do you want your fire pit on the ground wrapped in stone or brick? We could also raise it off the ground on a base of stone, brick, marble, or stucco and surround it with a patio or seating walls. Or we could build it into an outdoor kitchen as a fire table topped with Travertine or decorative concrete.
Have You Considered an Outdoor Fireplace?
Similar to the indoor variety, outdoor fireplaces use a flue to direct smoke up the chimney rather than out into the seating area. We can help you with a landscape design to accommodate an outdoor fireplace, no matter the size of your yard.
You can place it near a pergola that houses outdoor furniture, tuck it in a corner of the yard surrounded with patio pavers, or add built-in seating and firewood storage. Select from construction materials like stone, brick, stucco, marble, sandstone, slate, cobblestone, or river rock.
