Fire Pit with a View

Feel free to pause on this photo for a bit and daydream. The fire pit is made of Belgard pavers, and in addition to the spectacular scenery, it offers ideas for creating a square fire pit and planter with seating.

Glowing Bowl

The Vesta fire pit, designed by Boxhill owner Elizabeth Pzygoda-Motgomery, is the first in a collection of "goddess-inspired fire pits" from its Glow! Collection. This one is named after Vesta, the Roman goddess of hearth, home and family, and the inspiration for the rounded shape are the sanctuaries of the goddess that still exist in Italy. The fire pit, new for 2015 and priced for $395, is part of Boxhill's Glow Collection.

Rustic Modern

Fire pits can be functional and exude a sense of design, as with the Bentintoshape 30-inch round fire pit. The Cor-Ten steel will weather to an antique appearance, and an optional cover can turn it into a cocktail table.

Western Views

A family's Texas retreat has an outdoor fire pit surrounded by native vegetation and flowering native perennials, selected by Studio Outside Landscape Architects.

Bar Table

Grab a cocktail at this bar-height fire pit, which will accommodate stools for a relaxed evening outdoors. The Balmoral fire pit, with a wicker base, is made by California-based Caluco Outdoor Furniture.

Handcrafted Pit

Made of recycled carbon steel, the Vela fire pit—priced at $1,125—features sailboat cutouts, whether your yard is on the water or on land. The 37-inch diameter fire pit by Fancy Fire Pit weighs about 125 pounds.

Statement Piece

The rectangular shape and 48-by-20 inch size makes this fire pit by Bentintoshape one of the biggest options for above-ground fire pits. An antique patina develops on the Cor-Ten steel fire pit as it is used outdoors.

Neoclassical Design

To mix up the look of above-ground fire pits, this one has a hexagon shape and ring detailing. The Ashmost gas fire pit, made of cast aluminum by Calico Outdoor Furniture, has a porcelain tile inlay. 

Outdoor Haven

For this extensive outdoor living space, Belgard's Mega-Lafitt modular pavers, which have the look of cut flagstone, are used for the fire pit and bench seating.

Classic Look

Round fire pit options include the Conquest fire pit, with a porcelain top, by Caluco Outdoor Furniture. The fire pit is made of cast aluminum and uses gas for the flame.

Round and Round

A seating wall, using Belgard's Anchor Highland stone, serves as a key way to provide room for guests around a fire pit, also made with Belgard pavers.

Decorative Top

A stained glass top gives this fire pit an extra design edge. The Cirrus fire pit by Caluco has a round cast aluminum base.

Curb Appeal

A pre-built fire pit system by Alabama-based My Outdoor Rooms holds a prime spot at one end of a path leading to a Tudor-style home.

Dramatic Design

Appropriately named Blaze, this fire pit made of recycled steel will have flames flickering through the...flames. Made by Fancy Fire Pit.

Southern Influence

The Charleston fire pit, by Caluco, is designed in the style of the wrought iron details of gates, fences and balconies and entryways in the South Carolina city.

Hip to be Square

Sometimes a fire pit is the center of attention, and other times, it can cast a glow from nearby. The fire pit and patio area are made of Belgard pavers.

By the Pond

Boulders offer natural seating solutions around a fire pit created by Backyard Getaway, a Florida company.
