Backyard landscaping with campfires and gas burning features

Fireplace on deck designed by Environmental Construction, Kirkland WA Most of us have fond memories of sitting around a campfire at some point in our lives. Something sparks our primal instincts and we find ourselves staring into glowing embers. Recent trends have many homeowners spending their free time at home rather than vacationing.

Backyard landscaping is all about transforming a yard into a peaceful environment and comfortable living space. What better way to create an enjoyable area for family and social gatherings than to include an attractive fire pit or outdoor fireplace.

Outdoor Fireplaces

Our team of designers and craftsmen can build a fireplace to compliment the style of your home and garden.

Fire Pits

The function of fire pits and fireplaces is to safely contain burning materials. The forms, however, are endless - from simple portable metal fire pots to elaborate masonry structures and sculptural fire features. Depending on your lifestyle, lot size, and location we can customize a wood burning or gas fire feature to your desires.

Fire Pots

Portable firepit installed by Kirkland Landscape Company, Environmental Construction Portable fire features such as a Chimenea or metal fire pots work well in small locations and can easily be covered in inclement weather or moved into storage during winter. Many outdoor furniture suppliers offer patio tables with integrated propane burning fire elements.

Fire Rings

Fire rings are typically used in wood burning applications. They can be as simple as a hole in the ground with a few stones placed around the perimeter or a concrete well tile with a stucco finish. Some of our installations have stone veneer and caps on the exterior and fire-brick interiors. Others have custom fabricated grilling grates or spark screens.

Custom Fire Features:

Fire Rocks

Our custom fire-rock installations are quite amazing. We select a naturally dished boulder with you from local stone quarries and core drill a hole to allow a custom burner and gas piping to be installed. You can decide whether you want the feature to look like a camp fire with faux logs and glowing embers or more sculptural with volcanic stone and river rock.

Fire Sculptures

Burners are available in geometric shapes as well as curves and concentric circles. Covered with recycled colored glass, the combined result can be quite stunning.

When designing an outdoor fire pit, we will pay close attention to the surrounding area. Bushes and trees should be positioned at a safe distance away from the structure. We use a variety of hardscapes to enhance your fire-burning area.
