Fall is the perfect time of year to have an outdoor fire pit in your backyard!

Here are just a few tips for creating a fire pit that fits your space:

  • Begin with a solid fire-pit design. If you’re creating your fire pit from scratch, do your research about how to get the look you want and how to make it safe. We found this article on DIY fire pits helpful for understanding the fire-pit basics.
  • Choose quality stone products. As with most things, you get what you pay for. Don’t skimp when it comes to the stone pavers, limestone products, or mortar you choose for your fire pit. You want to select stone products that will still be standing in years to come.
  • Incorporate the fire pit into your existing patio or outdoor living space. A fire pit is a great way to extend your outdoor living space or to add to it. When choosing your design, be sure it ties in with your existing stone work or patio so that it looks seamless.
  • Keep safety in mind. You want to make sure the fire pit meets safety codes, so check with your homeowner’s association about safety requirements, and do your research before laying your stone pavers. You will also want to be careful about where you place your fire pit, especially if you have children or pets.
