The Inviting Glow of a Fire Pit or Outdoor Fireplace in Your East Valley Backyard

It gets chilly at night in the East Valley desert, but that doesn't mean you have to stay indoors. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit is an enviable landscape design feature for cool evenings. Entice your family and guests out the back door for socializing, to watch the dancing flames, and get cozy warm in your own backyard. A fire pit or outdoor fireplace provides a welcoming focal point and a wonderful ambiance for entertaining.

Fire Pit Or Fire Table

Fuel your fire pit with one of three methods - wood, gas, or propane.

Choose from a round, square, rectangle, or hexagonal shape and a range of ignition systems, burner pan shapes, and flame patterns. Lava rock, glass media, or gas logs complete the finished look of the fire pit.

Topped with Travertine or decorative concrete, we can craft a base surround of stone, brick, stucco, or marble.

What are the rules for outdoor fires?

A recreational fire in your backyard for warmth or cooking (i.e. fire pit, fireplace, BBQ island, outdoor kitchen, chiminea) does not require a permit. But, it is still subject to No Burn Days. Check specific rules for Maricopa County burning activities or Pinal County fire restrictions.

Outdoor Fireplace Options

Similar to the indoor variety, outdoor fireplaces use a flue to direct smoke up the chimney rather than out into the seating area. Fuel sources include wood, propane, or natural gas. Wood-burning provides a more interactive experience for those who like to position and poke at the firewood.

We can shape your outdoor fireplace to perfectly fit the installation space with curves, angles, arches, and straight lines. Functional elements may include firewood storage or built-in seating.

You can add stone bench seating walls, your own patio furniture, or a mix of both. Water features are popular complements, either built in or located nearby.

Select from construction materials like stone, brick, stucco, marble, sandstone, slate, cobblestone, or river rock. We can match the outdoor fireplace style to the colors and materials used in your landscaping. Or build it in bold contrast to your hardscapes for a grand presence.

Benefits of An Outdoor Fireplace

A fire pit is a fantastic hardscaping option. But maybe you hadn't considered upgrading to an outdoor fireplace because you're not sure where to put it. If you have a small yard, tuck it in a back corner surrounded by a paver patio.

Entertain frequent guests? Place it near a pergola-protected dining or conversation area. You can include fun add-ons like backyard pizza ovens or grilling grates. For an intimate setting, nestle a private hot tub area behind a double-sided outdoor fireplace.

A fire pit is witness to many happy moments—story-telling, laughter among friends, and timeout for a peaceful retreat. If your landscaping accommodates a BBQ island or an outdoor kitchen, you can prep, cook, and serve a meal all outside! Then dry off by the fire after a late-night swim or roast marshmallows.

In combination with artificial grass or a putting green, shrubs and trees, lighting and hardscape elements, you can transform your yard into valuable living space.
