How to Build a Backyard Paver Fire Pit

If you’re thinking of installing a backyard paver fire pit, you have many options. You can go with concrete, bluestone, bricks, or even Lineo Dimensional Stone. Each type has its own unique features and benefits. Using pavers to create a fire pit allows you to add a stylish accent to your outdoor space.

Bluestone

A bluestone paver fire pit can be an excellent addition to your backyard. In Texas, fire pits are a popular outdoor entertainment option. This style of paver fire pit combines classic appeal with contemporary style. This design is ideal for a shady backyard. It can even accommodate a wood-burning fire.

A gas-burning fire pit can also be incorporated into a landscape design. In this project, the fire pit is built into a large raised stone terrace that is near the garage. The walls of the terrace are composed of Old Quarry modular walls, which is repeated in the seat wall around the terrace. Custom Thermal Bluestone copings line the edge of the firepit and a circle of Bluestone pavers is used to define the seating area.

Bricks

Bricks can be a great way to build a backyard fire pit. Bricks are easy to use and will last for years. To build a fire pit with bricks, first prepare the site by digging a few inches into the ground. Then, lay out the bricks in a circular pattern. Space the bricks at least 10 inches apart. Then, place some sand or gravel inside the pit to prevent the flames from spreading.

The best type of brick to use will depend on how much heat will be generated around the fire pit. If it is very hot, you may want to use a brick that is both heat resistant and heat absorbing. On the other hand, if the fire pit is small and not subject to high temperatures, you may not need to use a heat-resistant brick. In this case, you might consider using IMUs, which are a good compromise between affordability and durability. These bricks are typically made from shale rock with insulation inside.

Lineo Dimensional Stone

Lineo Dimensional Stone is a versatile material, and its clean, linear look is perfect for outdoor vertical elements. It can be patterned in a variety of ways, from geometric fire features to zen-like focal points. It’s also available in a variety of colors, allowing you to select the shade that best matches your patio’s theme.

Incorporating an outdoor fireplace into your backyard plan can be a fun and exciting way to enhance the modern look of your patio, deck, or outdoor room. Modern styles tend to feature clean cuts and straight lines. Unilock’s Moda fireplace, for example, is made from Lineo Dimensional Stone. It comes in a grayish Limestone color with Midnight Charcoal accents. While the fireplace may seem monochromatic, you can choose to add pillows and colorful throws for a pop of color.

Town Hall (Basalt) Accents

If you’re in search of accents for your backyard paver fire pit, look no further than the Town Hall collection. These pavers have a traditional, yet modern feel. Inspired by North American clay street pavers, these pavers are durable and timeless. Perfect for use on driveways, patios, walkways, and borders, these pavers come in a variety of colors and textures. These textured pavers have been cast using Ultima and Reala(tm) Technology to provide superior durability.

The Town Hall (Basalt) pavers are available in a wide variety of colors. This variety of pavers is available in both brick and stone styles. Unilock Torino features bluestone-toned accents, while Townhall offers orange to red tones. These accents can be used as borders or accents to create a seamless, contemporary look.

Floating bench

Adding seating to your backyard paver fire pit can be as simple as building a bench. To make a bench, find several mismatched wood planks with varying textures and grains. These planks are then glued together. After the wood is glued, use sandpaper to carefully carve the wood slats for extra sophistication.

You can purchase a bench in plain colors, or choose a more elaborate one. One option is a bench with a wrought iron motif on its backing and side arm rests. You can also add potted plants to the seating area to create a warm atmosphere in the garden.
