Fire pit landscaping ideas are a popular addition backyard because they are built easily and affordably using the horizontal or retaining wall blocks. At a fundamental level, a fire pit is simply a hole that is filled with gravel and surrounded by a couple of rows of blocks. If you want to continue your fire pit beyond the basics, several additions will improve both the function and appearance of your fire pit.
Fire pit landscaping ideas are good places to gather around on cold nights. They can also be used for cooking outdoors. Cut a piece of stainless steel mesh with a diameter barely larger than the opening of your fire pit, for a grill grate. Cut the mesh using pliers, a saw with a blade to cut metal or with a cutting torch. Have enough extra blocks for one more row. When you want to cook, place the grate of the grill over the fire and fix it with the additional blocks. Use the fire pit on the grill frankfurter sausages, steaks, kebabs, salmon, hamburgers or vegetables.
Most people make campfires as circles or squares. A pit of fire in an atypical form will have a more artistic presence in its landscape. Make your fire pit landscaping ideas in the form of a half circle, a triangle, a diamond, an ellipse, a crescent moon, a pentagon or a diamond. Another option is to have a fire pit that creates a ring of fire. Have a ring fire ring, build a round fire pit, and add a circle of blocks in the center, leaving enough of a gap between the central blocks and the perimeter for the burning material.
