Outdoor Fire Pits

Outdoor fire pits are one of the most popular outdoor living design trends right now throughout Anchorage, Eagle River, and across the country, and with good reason: they add a unique, fun and relaxing element to any outdoor space. There are many options for outdoor fire pit designs. The one that's right for your backyard or deck should reflect your personality and goals for enjoying the welcoming warmth of a blazing fire pit.

Gas & Wood Fire Pits

The first questions to answer for an outdoor firepit design is the same you'd ask if you were about to install a pool: in-ground or above ground?

Standard fire pit designs are flat and flush with the ground. Others can have a raised profile. Ultimately the decision is yours and should be based on your own design preferences and the space you have to work with. Some common fire pit designs incorporate decorative paving stones or fire-resistant bricks to line the exterior of the fire pit. This can create a refined, yet rustic design. Additionally, some fire pit designs use smooth river rocks or colored glass within the fire pit itself, another eye-catching touch which can give a fire pit a unique quality. Other considerations for your fire pit include the shape—commonly, fire pits are either square or round—the placement, and whether it is a gas or fire pit. A gas fire pit requires municipal permitting and special expertise in order to ensure you safely tap into your home’s gas supply, a service that Titan can manage and provide. Anchorage municipal code also calls for fire pits to be at least 15 feet away from the house. 

Outdoor Family Gatherings Around Fire Pits

Fire pits do not always have to be standalone islands in the middle of the yard. Many people prefer to place their fire pit within their deck design. Others prefer a fire pit that stands alone in the backyard or connects to a deck via a walkway. There are many different ways to incorporate a fire patio into a landscape, hardscape or deck design.
