Outdoor Fire Pits in Charlotte NC
For millennia, people have gathered around fires for both practical and recreational purposes. Native Americans used fire ceremonies to celebrate, pray, and give thanks. Pioneers cooked over them during their long treks across the country. Cowboys gathered around them after a long day driving cattle, sharing stories while they ate their plates of hardtack and beans.
Still today, we find something peaceful and restorative about settling in by a fire. That’s why fire pit construction has gone from a utilitarian endeavor to an artform. A modern outdoor fire pit is the epitome of outdoor life and often the focal point of many Charlotte landscaping projects.
Fire Pits: The Charlotte Backyard Essential
An outdoor fire pit and custom patio design can be enjoyed year-round in the moderate climate of Charlotte and the surrounding cities of Concord, Rock Hill, Gastonia, Mooresville and Huntersville. An outdoor fire pit is the perfect addition to your landscape, adding beauty to your yard – as well as creating additional outdoor living space.
During the milder weather of the spring, summer and autumn, you and your guests will enjoy the flicker of flames and the glow of dying embers. When colder weather sets in, you’ll gather around the warmth of a well-designed outdoor fire pit. And no matter the season, kids of all ages will enjoy roasting marshmallows and making s’mores.
Let Us Inspire Your Fire Pit Design
When you’re ready to take your outdoor living space to the next level with a custom fire pit, contact the MetroGreenscape team. Our professional hardscape design team will meet with you in your home to create a fire pit design that complements your outdoor style and décor. (There is a small initial consultation fee of $99 for this visit.)

Using the information gathered during this meeting, our team will diligently work to create a comprehensive fire pit design that is both functional and attractive. Our design layouts incorporate a high level of detail and specificity, with the result a custom design that is uniquely your own.
Choosing Fire Pit Materials, Type, and Seating
During our consultation with you, we’ll determine the types of materials to use in your fire pit design, along with any other hardscape features you’d like to add. Perhaps you want a modern contoured and sculpted concrete fire pit. Or maybe you envision a stone fire pit made of natural materials to integrate into an established natural design concept. Or perhaps you want a fire pit created using manmade hardscape materials such as brick or decorative blocks. We use a wide range of quality building materials to ensure you get the most from your new outdoor fire pit installation.
We’ll also visit with you about the type of fire pit you want. Maybe a traditional wood-burning fire pit will meet your needs. Or, perhaps, a fire pit table is what you had in mind. During our consultation with you, we’ll discuss these choices and many more.
We’ll also talk with you about your seating requirements. Will this fire pit be the spot for small, family get-togethers? Or will this be the center of the party? We’ll look at the number of people you’d like to fit around your outdoor fire pit and how you’d like the seating to be arranged. We’ll create a seating arrangement that meets your needs.
Constructing Your Dream Fire Pit
Once the design is complete, our design team will pass the baton to our fire pit contractors. They will turn your dream from paper to reality, one stone at a time. We’ll carefully manage every detail until your dream outdoor fire pit is complete.
When we’re finished, be ready to invite guests over to enjoy your wonderful new hardscape-designed outdoor living area, centered around a beautiful fire pit. Don’t forget the marshmallows.
Your custom outdoor fire pit will become the central feature in an outdoor living area that is an extension of your home. It will be attractive, as well as functional.
