A homemade fire pit gives you the ability to enjoy outdoor living no matter the time of year. There is nothing stopping you from sitting outside in the middle of winter next to the warm fire, enjoying a hot chocolate. Sounds like bliss, right? After all, most of us do not get the right amount of use out of our backyards. We may enjoy sitting outside during the summer months, but we forget about our outdoor space during the winter. There is no need to do this with a custom fire pit. Instead, you can have the best of both worlds, meaning you can enjoy outdoor living come winter or summer. Let's discover how to build a fire pit with pavers!
Different design options
There are a number of different options you have at your disposal when it comes to designing your own custom fire pit with pavers. This includes the following:
- You can use a predesigned fire pit ring. They come in many different sizes, and DIYers of all levels can enjoy them.
- The best option is to create your own custom fire pit. Select from our collection of walls and create a unique size and look that suits your style. From rustic to contemporary, you can achieve anything.
- Or, the final option is to go for a sunken fire pit. However, you do need to be very careful in terms of safety with this option.
Creating a custom fire pit
As mentioned, the best way to enhance your backyard in this way is to create a custom fire pit with pavers. We have a huge collection of retaining walls and slabs for sale, which enable you to create a fire pit that fits in with the style of your yard and creates a stunning overall effect. You can play around with different scales, textures, and colors, enabling you to build a fireplace that does not have a cookie-cutter design and instead expresses your own unique personality. Our different texture slabs enable you to create the appearance of a different material entirely, which is assured to impress.

This approach is very much in style at the moment and will ensure your fire pit is the statement piece in the garden. The sky is the limit!

Warm up with Warming Trends
Once you’ve chosen the design of your fire pit, all that is left to do is to choose the right burner. At Techo-Bloc, we offer the Crossfire Brass Burner by Warming Trends. With just a push of a button, your fire feature will produce a taller, brighter, and fuller flame that resembles the look of a natural wood burning fire. Unlike other burners made from stainless steel, Warming Trends burners are made entirely from brass. Having a brass fire pit burner eliminates the need for a replacement over time since brass is corrosion resistant and will not rust.
With the fuller flame produced by the Warming Trends burners, you’re able to create a warm and inviting gathering place even on colder nights. Since a brass burner is easy to control, there is no need to worry about sparks flying, giving you more time to relax and entertain your guests. Compared to a wood burning fire pit which creates a smoky burn, a brass burner is a cleaner option, as it produces a polished and smooth burn. Say goodbye to flames that are small and boring and say hello to flames that are safe and will impress your guests.
From modern to rustic landscapes, the Crossfire brass burner is sure to make an eye-catching statement piece and the perfect addition to any backyard landscape design. Finish off your fire pit seating area with clever furniture additions that will create seamless designs and match all your stone features. Available in three styles and sizes, Warming Trends Brass burners produces twice the flame with half the gas. Whether you choose, square, rectangle or the circle option, your fire feature is sure to become a conversation starter and leave your guests saying “WOW”.
