A fire pit can have a wide range of design options and personalization to suit your taste and landscape. Whether you prefer a modern, rustic, or traditional design, custom fire pits can be tailored to match your style. Not just the materials, but the shape you choose or the size, can make your fire feature unique. We often add built in seating to make the patio feel more enclosed and cozy. The personalization possibilities are nearly endless and it is not crazy to think you could have a one of kind piece. Just over the winter we spent days carving out a basalt column to accept a rectangular fire pit and boring holes for the gas, then we polished the black basalt surface for a stunning and unique fire table like nothing i’ve seen before. Like landscaping in general a fire pit can be artistic and unique to fit your yard or your personality and style.
