Adding an outdoor fire pit or fireplace is an easy way to expand your home's living space and provide an additional area for entertaining. These elements serve as natural gathering places for guests during parties and other social events. And, with a 60-degree average low temperature for 75% of the year, a custom fireplace or fire pit can add functionality to your enjoyment by providing warmth.

We are familiar with a wide range of design and construction options being utilized in the central Iowa cities of Des Moines, West Des Moines, Ankeny, as well as surrounding locations.

You can choose a pre-designed kit or a completely customized design!

We understand the importance of a great design. We create fire pits and fireplaces that match your home's feel and external architecture. Building materials, size, shape, and color are considerations that all play a critical role in the final design and product we create for you. Our team has many pre-made kit options for you to choose from. If you have a specific dream fire feature in mind and you'd like to design everything from scratch, we can help with that too!

Common Shapes & Ideal Sizes for Fire Elements

Square fire pits are a relatively common choice among the West Des Moines customers of A+ Lawn & Landscape.

Our fire features can be created to your individual specifications and the array of design options is limited only by your imagination. Our clients often choose round or rectangular fire features, but we can work with you if you have another shape in mind!

The size of your fire element will be dictated by the space available as well as your personal wishes. Typically, smaller fire features (around three feet in diameter) are ideal for creating small and cozy spaces. Larger features (around six feet in diameter or greater) are more attractive for entertaining and for use with larger groups of guests.

Size and shape also impact features that are internal to the fire element. For example, various shapes and sizes can accommodate double or triple burner rings, which create more flame if this is desired.

Available Material Choices

There is a wide variety of materials available, which can be used in the construction process. Choices include:

  • Masonry block
  • Decorative brick
  • Pavers
  • Slate
  • Stone
  • Stucco
  • Tile
  • Metals

We can install both wood-burning and gas-burning fire features!

Colors and Materials Typically Used for Fire Pits & Fireplaces

The choice of materials often influences color. Stone products are typically gray, brown or cream in hue. Brick pavers provide reddish tones. Metal finishes are commonly black. Color is an important factor and should fit into the context of your home's exterior. As design experts, we will understand your desires and work together to create your vision.

Our design experts are excited about speaking with you and assisting in developing the perfect fire pit or fireplace which compliments the external architecture of your home. We will guide you in considering materials, size, shape, and the many other factors necessary for a successful outcome.
