We don't desire any kind of wild fires going on so we select an area out in the center of the lawn.

If You Construct It, They will certainly come.

Away from any type of reduced hanging trees or cords, bushes, and so on. Now that we've discovered our area to build it let's measure out a 3 foot by 3 foot square. Below again it can be as huge or tiny as you desire. Simply take safety into consideration. After our dimensions for size we note those corners of the square off. Currently before we begin to remove our fire pit, how much down should we dig it?

Dig your fire pits no much deeper than 3/4 of your arm's size. Why that deep? Because every so often you'll need to clean it out. Clear out the ashes, dirt and more. This way you do not need to climb down in it to clean it out. You'll still have the ability to reach to the base of it with your arm and even a mop and pick up pan.

Utilizing a typical yard shovel we dug our fire pit within the dimensions we marked off. Making sure to only dig about 1 1/2' deep. Or 3/4 arm's length.

Right now you must currently have your selected blocks or rock or rock to utilize on the inside.

You can make use of concrete to strengthen the sides and base of it but I do not see the requirement, since the fire will remain in the ground anyway. For this case we simply utilize normal landscape design rock or block. Then just lay the very first layer of block in the bottom around the sides.

Now complete the rest of the base or floor of the pit. To make it fit right you may have to reduce some of the bricks. Usage masonry saw for this. As soon as you have your pit floor finished, start existing and also stacking the brick around the sides of the pit.

Depending on how you intend to make it at the corners you can either join them with each other or overlap them. However to join them you'll have to make custom-made cuts to the blocks. Proceed filling the sides of the pit by stacking your blocks.

Once you have actually reached the top of the fire pit, you might discover that the actual fire area will certainly be smaller sized. Yet that's OK, we have a nice little fire pit to appreciate. From below you can do things like producing a spruce up around the fire pit. Once more your creativity is the limit.

Wrap Up.
