Create a Cozy Outdoor Retreat with Built-in Firepits by Onyx Landscape

A custom firepit creates a space to relax and create lasting memories with your friends and family. You can choose the style and color to match your personal style and to fit with your existing exterior design. 

Onyx Landscape designs and builds built-in firepits that are durable enough to hold up through the changing seasons, giving you a comfortable space to enjoy the outdoors all year long.

Types of Built-in Firepits

We will take the time to get to know you and your preferences so we can design a firepit you will love to use. Here are some of the available styles:

  • Sunken firepits are recessed into the ground, creating a cozy and intimate seating area for guests to gather around the flames. They provide a natural focal point for outdoor entertaining and can be customized with seating walls or built-in benches for added comfort.
  • Raised firepits are elevated above the ground, offering a commanding presence and a stunning focal point for your outdoor space. We use sturdy materials like stone, brick, or concrete.
  • Fire tables give you enough space to eat a meal while a small fire in the center of the table keeps you warm. They are ideal for smaller spaces like patios and decks. 

Best Types of Rocks for Building Firepits

When it comes to building firepits, it’s essential to choose the right type of rocks for safety, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Here are some of the best types of rocks commonly used for building firepits:

Fire-rated bricks are specially designed to withstand high temperatures and provide excellent heat retention. They are a popular choice for building firepits due to their durability, affordability, and availability in various colors and sizes.

Natural stone such as granite, limestone, or sandstone. Adds a rustic and organic look to your firepit while providing excellent heat resistance and durability. Each type of natural stone offers unique colors, textures, and patterns, allowing for endless customization options.

Fire-rated concrete blocks are durable, heat-resistant, and easy to work with, making them an excellent choice for building firepits. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes and can be stacked or mortared together to create a custom design.

Ways to Customize Your Firepit

Customizing your built-in firepit allows you to create a unique outdoor retreat that reflects your personal style and enhances the beauty of your outdoor space. Here are some of our favorite customization options:

Seating Options

Built-in seating creates benches and chairs to sit and enjoy the fire. Stone seating holds up over time and is easy to clean if dirt and pollen build up on the surfaces.

Decorative Accents

Add decorative accents such as mosaic tiles, glass beads, or fire glass to express your personal style and create a stunning focal point for your outdoor space.

Cooking Accessories

Incorporate a built-in grill, rotisserie, or cooking grate to create a mini outdoor kitchen for cooking and entertaining. Never miss out on a good story by running inside to refill food and drinks.

Water Features

Combine your firepit with water features such as a fire and water bowl, bubbling fountain, or waterfall to create a tranquil outdoor retreat.
