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.

    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.
