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.
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.
