Stone with Gas

Using natural gas burners coupled with volcanic stone, or "fire-glass," is a clean and easy way to incorporate a stone fire pit into a yard, says Brad Renken of Georgia-based Hearthstone Environments.

Part of the Plan

When designing seating walls and other hardscape elements of your backyard, consider fitting a stone fire pit into the plan. This backyard makeover is by Georgia-based Landscape Studio Group.

Special Spot

A wood bench and mixture of materials adds a rustic touch to this custom fire pit area by Hearthstone Environments.

Fire and Water

Homeowners are requesting gas-burning fire pits more often, whether the fire pit is placed around a pool or in other spots of a backyard, says Brad Renken of Georgia-based Hearthstone Environments.

Curved Lines

Adding a curved flagstone wall creates extra seating around a stone fire pit.

Inspired by a Resort

This fire pit area, which can seat 12 to 15 people, is modeled after an outdoor area the homeowners enjoyed at Palmetto Bluff, a lowcountry resort community in South Carolina. Magnolias and Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight' are behind the wall, made of stone from south Georgia. To the right, pink Wave petunias flow out of a container.

Size It Right

When selecting or building a stone fire pit, consider the height you need to warm yourself and guests, and to keep people safe, too.

In the Round

Set up in an amphitheater-style layout to hold a crowd, a stone fire pit is the star of this backyard.

Relaxing by the Water

This patio by RPM Landscape and Pavers descends to a stone fire pit, for folks to enjoy the lake setting on chilly days and nights, and continues to the water.

DIY Project

Stone fire pit kits include Pavestone’s RumbleStone Round Fire Pit Kit, which is available in three colors and can be created in square or round shapes.

Building Blocks

Companies such as Pavestone offer kits with different colors of stone and shapes of blocks, whether you want to make it yourself or work with an installer. 

Small Rustic Fire Pit

A small fire pit embedded in a stone patio and circled by wooden chairs creates a rustic feel.

Campfire Effect

Pre-fabricated fire pits with a cast stone base often come with the essentials, including the fire bowl, wood grate and mesh screen for safety.

Completing the Outdoor Kitchen

A prebuilt fire pit system using stone was installed as part of an outdoor kitchen by My Outdoor Rooms, based in Alabama.

Stone Surround

One of the best things about stone fire pits, such as this gorgeous one, is the foundation that it sets for plenty of conversation and seating, such as the Sedona chairs from Summer Classics.
