Fall is the Perfect Time for Fire Pits

Why You Should Consider Adding a Fire Feature

One of the biggest benefits of adding a fireplace or fire pit to your home is that it extends outdoor entertaining through the fall and winter months. Invite your friends and family over for the night. Nothing beats staring into the flames of a roaring fire, telling ghost stories, and roasting marshmallows.

There are several advantages to building an outdoor space with a fire feature:

Take a Break from Electronics

Fire pits are a great way to allow everyone to cook food together while diverting the kids from their electronics. You can escape the stress of the day and enjoy nature without the distraction of TV, phones, and video games.

Outdoor firepits


There’s no wonder why fire pits are so popular. The endless variety of designs and styles offer a multitude of uses. Some pits include tabletop surrounds, seats, and other extras. They’re a long way from the simple chimneys or steel bowls that used to serve as a backyard blaze.

Making Memories

An outdoor living area offers the opportunity to spend quality time talking and sharing stories with family and friends. There’s something very soothing about gathering around a nocturnal fire as the light fades and the stars appear. Make the investment in your home now and see the benefits it brings to your family.

Planning Ahead

There are several factors involved in finding the right type and style for your family: budget, permanent vs. portable, safety, local regulations, burning permits and type of burning fuel. Make sure you contact a professional to learn more about what kind of fire pit is right for you.

Creative Ways to Incorporate Fire Into Your Next Outdoor Project

Outdoor firepits and fireplaces are one of the most popular additions for outdoor living spaces. They help extend time spent outside when it grows dark out or the weather begins to cool down. They also serve as a gathering spot for your backyard, bringing everyone together around the warmth of a cozy fireplace.

If you’re considering adding a fire pit or outdoor fireplace, you have a wealth of options to choose from. Customize your next project with some of these ideas:

Built-In Seating

A stone bench offers plenty of additional seats around the fire. A fire pit and matching seat creates a seamless look in your yard. The stone can complement your fire pit with brick accents, custom molding or matching colors. You can also build a seat with brick or concrete options.

Sunken Fire Pit

Section off a specific area of your property with a sunken fire pit. Make it large enough for plenty of seating around the fire. Accent with a stone border or plants. You can choose from flat pavers, gravel or even a grass base. The sunken space can also protect the fire from wind blowing it out.

Two Story Fireplace

Add style and impact with a grand fireplace. A two-story fireplace will provide extra warmth and coverage year-round. Consider the scale of your yard and see how you can design an extra-large fireplace that will be the focal point of your backyard.

Sleek and Modern

Fire pits don’t need to be round. Bring South Beach vibes with a white, rectangular and modern style fire pit. You can top it with a concrete slab or another smooth surface to make it look sleek and polished, or add a glass wall to surround the flame.


On the other side of the style wheel, make your fire pit or fireplace homey with whitewashed brick. Add black metal accents to the space. Finish the area with rustic seating from reclaimed wood and soft, ambient lighting.

Custom Masonry

Expert stonemasons can design and install eye-catching stone fire pits and fireplaces that will stand the test of time. They can be tailored to any size and style of the home and offer lasting beauty for years. Make sure you work with an experienced hardscaping company to ensure the work is done with attention to detail.

The Rising Popularity of Fireplaces and Fire Pits

Why More are Being Built Each Year

Fireplaces and fire pits are one of the most popular outdoor projects today, and it’s not easy to see why. What could be more enjoyable than stepping outside to enjoy the comfort and relaxation of your own backyard?

A Gathering Place

As the warm summer nights make way for cooler fall temps, custom fireplaces and fire pits significantly extend your time outside. Fire warms the air and keeps bugs away to help when hosting guests and family members. They also create a gathering spot for parties and events.

Hardscaping Options

From simple wood-burning fire pits to natural gas or propane with natural stone accents, the design of each project can be adapted to fit every yard. Esposito Masonry team members have been building elegant, inspiring outdoor fireplaces that last for decades. They carry a wide range of stone colors, shapes and styles.

Outdoor Roasting

Not only do outdoor fire pits allow guests to enjoy outdoor entertaining well into colder months, but they’re also just as useful in the summer season too. And they’re not just for roasting marshmallows. Outdoor fireplaces can double as outdoor barbecues in a pinch as well.
