Firepit Designs: Hardscaping for Autumn Evenings
Over 20 Ideas to Inspire Your Outdoor Living Dreams
The best firepit designs are a blend of landscaping, hardscaping and landscape lighting. They look beautiful all the time– day or night. Of course, the magic really starts when you’re gathered around the fire with friends and family, especially on a crisp, cool autumn evening.

We’d like to point our another nice fireplace design element, which has been featured in several pictures. Building a half wall around the firepit looks attractive, gives seating and improves safety. You’ll notice this firepit is also safely away from the house and trees.
