With the days getting shorter and the weather starting to turn, it’s clear Winter is on its way.

That doesn’t mean you have to retreat into your home however; with the addition of a fire pit you can use your outdoor space all year round. It’s also a great way to create a focal point in your garden, and a cosy area to hang out with your family and friends.

When it comes to landscaping your fire pit space, the possibilities are virtually endless. With an abundance of materials at your disposal, you can create a look to suit any aesthetic.


This is a nice look particularly if you have a traditional garden or natural space. As you can see, these designs are not too neat or uniform – they tend to make use of organic shapes, a mixture of materials and tiles that blend in with the surroundings.

Travertine and natural limestone work really well in a rustic space, as does the crazy paving style because it allows the area to become part of the garden.


A modern or contemporary look has the power to make a strong statement in your outdoor space. If you have the same aesthetic throughout your home it’s a great way to extend your living space into the garden.

Clean lines, neutral colours and minimalism are typical characteristics of this style. Although the word “contemporary” does mean “of the moment”, so it will evolve with the times and trends.

Large sleek tiles are a great option for the contemporary look, as they keep it simple and stylish.


The Scandinavian design aesthetic is typically simple, modern and natural with accents of wood. It’s the perfect way to get a sleek look but still with an organic feel. As you can see with these examples, the travertine tiles define the area and ensure it’s hard-wearing, while the wood softens the space and gives it a cosy vibe.


With so many colours and styles of tile and brick available, it’s easy to create a natural look and define the various areas in your garden. In these examples, even though the fire pit spaces are part of the main patio area, the clever use of tiles separates them.


Mosaic tiles add a different dynamic to your fire pit area and give it an exotic feel. They can be added as a feature piece or to define the space from other areas of the garden.

See what we mean – the possibilities are endless!
