Things To Consider When Building A Backyard Fire Pit

If you’re looking to add some entertainment features to your backyard, a fire pit is a perfect addition! Fire pits bring people together. They are a great spot for listening to music, chatting with friends & family, making delicious s’mores, and just kicking back to relax on beautiful summer nights. 

Ready to start your fire pit project? Here are some things to consider first! 

Choose the best location for your fire pit 

The first order of business is figuring out where the fire pit is going to go in your yard. Choose an area that is good for entertaining and is at least 10 feet away from your home, any trees, and any fences. There shouldn’t be any hanging branches or anything flammable above or around the area where the fire pit will go. Lastly, make sure the area is leveled! 

Choose the materials

Next, you’ll choose what type of materials you want the fire pit to be made out of. stone, brick, or concrete are all great options! If you’re unsure, you can always ask your landscape construction company. They’ll have some great insight into what material will bring your vision to life best or what might look best in your yard.

Choose the right size

It’s important to choose the right size for your fire pit. You want to make sure it fits in well with your yard and that it’s big enough for group gatherings. Take some time to consider what you’ll mainly be using the fire pit for to help make a decision on size. 


Choose furniture for around your fire pit

Now that you know where the fire pit will be placed and what materials you’ll be using, you can decide on what furniture will look best in the area. Consider wall bench seating, a paver bench, a stone bench, brick wall seating, etc. These will all look fantastic around your fire pit and be sure to impress your guests.
