Fire Pit Rings

firepit rings for dressign up concrete block firepits

I have a question for you.  What do you think of these fire pit rings (there are more patterns on the site)?    Here is what I think — yes, please — and very clever.

But, I am still not sure it is enough camouflage to make me happy about fire-pits that are made of these concrete blocks.  Concrete blocks are an economical choice, but I just don’t care for the way they look in this application.  I’m curious, have you built a fire ring like this?  And if you did , how did you make it look natural and beautiful and green garden worthy?  I’d love to see pictures if you want to send them.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Open firepits are sort of a non-starter here with the grass/brush fire risk, but an enclosed combination fireplace / bread oven has been on the drawing board for years. However, as decorative as those liners are, they look like a great way to conduct heat out of the pit and into the region where my feet, hand, cocktail, smores-stick would reside. The resut being melted shoes & burned digits.
    I’m with you, I think the concrete blocks are hideous, but not as bad as recycled sidewalk.

    On the contrary, I think this would be the only acceptable use of retaining wall blocks.
