A modular gas valve fire pit incorporated in a clay paver patio. A curved modular seat wall offers permanent seating. It is an inviting focal point when viewed from inside the house.
Once the location is determined, there are several types of fire pits to consider. Regardless of the shape and size, you can have one that is gas burning, natural wood burning or that has a gas igniter/start. Gas burning fire pits, with fireproof rock or glass, make lighting a fire easy and do not produce smoke or messy ash to clean up afterwards. However, there is something to be said about the aroma, natural glow and crackling sounds of a wood burning fire pit. How about a combination of the two? A gas igniter can be installed, making the chore of starting a fire much simpler. You simply prepare a wood burning fire like normal, then start the gas and ignite. Once the fire is going, you can turn off the gas and enjoy a wood burning fire.
