Outdoor fire pits are popular outdoor living design accessories in Toronto, ON, hardscapes today because they add a unique, fun, and relaxing element to any outdoor space. Although there are various design options available, sometimes simple is best.
Some fire pit designs are flat and flush with the ground, and others have a raised profile. Whichever you go with, the decision should be based on your own design preferences and space you have to work with. Other considerations include the shape – popular shapes being either square or round pits. Fire pits can be designed to stand alone in the backyard or form the central feature of a patio.
Whichever the case, here are a few simple yet effect fire pit designs to try for your Toronto hardscape.
