Summertime conjures up images of starry nights, campfires, and quality time with family. If you don’t have a fire pit in your backyard, here are some pointers on how to build a fire pit and your family or friends to enjoy. Follow our guide to building the best fire pit for your backyard if you don’t know where to start or want some pointers.
Before you begin building or buying supplies, ask yourself these questions:
Where do you want to put your fire pit? It may look nice on your patio near your house, but have you considered the smoke coming in through your windows? You must keep it a safe distance away from any plants, shrubs, or sheds. If you have a lot of trees on your property, make sure the area above the fire pit is clear.
Spray paint the location of the fire pit and dig it out several inches. Tamp down, fill with gravel, wet with the garden hose, and tamp down again until it is level only a few inches below the surface.
To ensure that everything fits, lay your bricks without using adhesive first. To raise any bricks, use sand and a rubber mallet to tamp them down. Once the fire ring is in place, use adhesive to secure all the bricks.
That is how you build a fire pit. Before using the fire pit, allow the adhesive to cure. Bring new life to your backyard with this new installation.
