#1. Cottage Feeling In The City

Have a taste of the cottage in your own backyard with this rustic but charming outdoor fire pit. It cleverly merges on either side seamlessly into a retaining wall. The random backdrop of perennials and bushes gives the illusion that you are on the edge of a forest, not in the middle of the city.

#2. Enjoy The Curves

This beautiful oval outdoor fireplace is surrounded by a contoured and curvy stone retaining wall. The retaining wall is expertly designed to have a dual function of delineating a barrier between the patio and garden while also providing additional seating for guests wishing to enjoy the fire's warmth on a cool summer evening. Four accent chairs offer the perfect spot for casual conversation.

#3. Tahiti Treat

Your Tahiti inspired sunken fire pit will have the neighbours talking. This gorgeous flagstone fireplace is the centrepiece of the tropical looking patio. An eclectic collection of throw pillows add style as well as comfort to the sunken seating area. Add a grass thatched umbrella and lounging chairs and you will think that you are in an island paradise.

#4. Heritage Hearth

If you'd like a bit of history in your backyard, why not consider this heritage-inspired outdoor fireplace design reminiscent of an 18th century Colonial kitchen. It's solid and rather imposing presence will make an austere focal point to your outdoor space.


#5. Terraced Temptation

These terraced retaining walls are the perfect answer to a steep sloped backyard. They cleverly provide additional patio and gardening space. An inconspicuous outdoor fireplace is ingeniously concealed in the centre wall, only to reveal its presence once it is lit. The complementary grey and beige brick tones add a cool and calm atmosphere to this elegant tiered outdoor area.

#6. Cozy Corner

Brighten and heat up a forgotten corner of your patio with this sleek gas-powered fireplace. The careful choice of stone in various colours and sizes add unexpected character to this rather simple but classic design. The smart placement of this fireplace in the corner adds function to this unused space without sacrificing space in the centre of the patio.

#7. Peek-A-Boo Pit

This beautiful see-through outdoor fireplace boasts a contemporary linear design. The peek-a-boo brick hearth gives a real indoor, outdoor ambiance. Sit on your patio and enjoy the changing colours of the surrounding landscape throughout the seasons.

#8. You Can Always Dream

Take a refreshing dip in your own Romanesque in-ground pool, then dry off and warm up next to the inviting flames of this awe-inspiring stone fireplace. A symmetrical brick wall, complete with handy arched storage spaces to hold your supply of wood for burning, embraces each side of this gorgeous outdoor fireplace.
