One of the most popular features driving customers to call E.A. Quinn Landscape Contracting is the custom fire pit. A back yard doesn’t feel complete without gathering areas, and a custom fire pit designed specifically for your yard is a great way to create a space where you can spend time with your family.
Custom Fire Pits
The fire pits that E.A. Quinn designs and installs are wholly custom. That means they can come in any size, shape, color or fuel type. We can integrate a fire pit with an existing patio, or design a patio and other features – like sitting walls, retaining walls, pools or outdoor kitchens – around a fire pit.
Fire Pit Size & Shape
First, when planning a custom fire pit, you’ll want to think about shape. Do you want your fire pit to be round, square or rectangular? Do you want there to be built-in seating in the form of a paver sitting wall? Or do you want chairs that you can move around the fire pit? Or do you want both options? More geometric-shaped fire pits are currently trending (think squares and rectangles), but circular or oval fire features are never going to go out of style. It really comes down to your personal preference.
Fire Pit Materials
Next, you’ll want to think about what material you want your fire pit made out of. The two main categories of material are pavers and natural stone. Pavers offer a lot of variety in terms of color and shape. Natural stone offers fewer options, but natural stone also has a more traditional, elegant look. Our designers can walk you through the pluses and minuses of the material choices.
Fire Pit Fuel Types
Fuel type is also an important consideration when planning a custom fire pit for your back yard. You may opt to go the traditional route and use wood to power your fire pit. Some homeowners prefer gas – either natural or propane – for its convenience and cleanliness. E.A. Quinn has experience designing and installing all fuel types and can help you select the best fuel source for your project.
