The top 3 materials used for the outer fire pit wall are:

o Stone which can range anywhere from hand-picked river rocks to manufactured landscaping stones. Stone gives a more outdoor, rugged look.

o Brick which can be selected to match the brick in a brick home veneer. Brick is more traditional and brings a slightly formal look.

o Tile which has endless variations and colors can add a personal touch to the pit style. Tiles can give a touch of whimsy or be more subdued.

Another material choice that must be kept in mind is for the gas rings. The choice is between stainless steel and galvanized metal rings. While the galvanized may be less expensive the stainless steel rings will substantially outlive the lower quality of the galvanized metal.

When using gas rings in a fire pit another material choice comes into play; sand or glass in the bottom. Again, this would be a personal choice and either is equally suitable.
