Campfire on the Homefront This fire pit recreates a campfire setting on a New England lakefront property designed by YardApes, based in Connecticut. The stacked stone, pebble floor and handiwork in the design of the wooden chairs creates an inviting entertaining spot. Gorgeous Gathering Spot Studio Outside Landscape took advantage of the sunset and western views in positioning this metal fire pit and seating on a Texas property. The space is immersed in native vegetation and flowering native perennials that provide color through most of the growing season, according to the company, which won an American Society of Landscape Architects award for the project. One With Nature A movable fire bowl nestled into newly established colonies of bayberry, winterberry and fern extends the use of a Maine garden beyond dusk. Slabs of lichen and moss-covered granite are used as benches and form a firewood crib. The property is within Acadia National Park along the western edge of Somes Sound on Maine’s Mount Desert Island. Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design won an American Society of Landscape Architects award for the entire project. Surrounded by Stone Look closely and you’ll see this stone fire pit’s design is a bit unusual. The fire pit bowl is perched on pillars of veneered stone and topped with Indiana limestone. The Minnesota paver patio by Southview Design is surrounded by a veneered-stone seat wall, also topped with Indiana limestone. It creates a captivating setting on the edge of the woods. Bucolic Moment In a pastoral setting, whether a farm, family homestead or in a new community like Serenbe, near Atlanta, you simply need logs and stones to create a fitting fire pit. Refined and Rustic Natural-looking textures, such as Belgard’s Mega-Lafitt pavers and stones, lend a rustic look to a fire pit and patio in Leawood, Kansas. Circle Up Stacked stone enhances this circular fire pit, with a flagstone top, on a farm in Georgia. Scenic Setup The mountain scenery in the western United States is the spectacular backdrop for this outdoor entertaining area. The fire pit and patio use Belgard pavers and stones with a chiseled finish. Rustic Luxe Set the tone for outdoor entertaining by using a mixture of fieldstone in different palettes. This home’s round fire pit is part of an exquisite outdoor entertaining area with wicker seating from Summer Classics and cozy deep cushions that still maintain a rustic feel. Small Space Fire Pit This compact fire pit’s steel base and bowl have a rust finish for an unpolished appearance. The firewood holder is a bonus in this fire pit by Esschert Design. Stylish Shape A high-design option is this modern fire pit by Boxhill. The Vesta fire pit, part of its Glow! collection, was a finalist for the Association of Professional Landscape Designers 2015 Product of the Year. It comes in natural rust and raw steel finishes. Lakefront Illumination Lake home interiors often have a rustic focus, which can extend to outdoor amenities such as a waterside fire pit. The rough edges of the fire pit give it an unpolished, more natural, appearance. High Perch A paver wall, fire pit and wooded setting combine for a relaxing, rustic retreat. Barrel Beauty For rustic elegance, look for products with a sense of age. The Vin De Flame Reserve Wine Barrel Fire Pit, sold through retailers such as Authenteak, is built with old wine barrels, then hand sanded and weatherproofed. Texture Choices When trying to create a rustic look, opt for pavers that appear to be chiseled, such as these irregular-shaped Belgard pavers with the look of flagstone. The blocks used to create the fire pit have a rough-hewn texture.

Prepare a Site Here’s what not to do: Build the pit under low-hanging limbs or power lines. Also, avoid putting it over or near a septic tank, leaching field, well head, or property line. Local laws will almost certainly require you to position a structure of this type a given distance from your neighbor’s plot, not to mention your own house. Check the codes at the town hall or the fire department.After my buddy—Roy Berendsohn, Popular Mechanics’ senior home editor—and I had located the ideal spot in my yard, we drove a stake at the approximate center of the pit, looped a mason’s line around the stake, and then tied the line around a can of white landscape spray paint, with which I created a 102-inch-diameter circle. This is large enough to accommodate the pit, whose outside diameter is 66 inches, and a surrounding 18-inch band of River Jacks gravel.To create a base for the pit and gravel, we dug a hole 4 inches deep bordered by the painted circle and dumped in enough crushed stone to fill a few wheelbarrows. (I used 2A Modified, a common road-building material in my area; check for something similar at your local stone yard.) After raking the stone to a depth of about 2 inches, we compacted it with a hand tamper.For aesthetic reasons and to ensure the fire-pit blocks align properly, it’s important to build the pit’s walls on a level surface. So we marked a 68-inch-diameter circle (a couple inches wider than the outer wall of the pit) on the compacted stone, then used a 4-foot mason’s level to check the surface. We weren’t as fussy about leveling the rest of the stone, since it would be covered just by the gravel. George Retseck
