Warm Up the Party with Your Own Fire Pit


A fire pit provides a great gathering spot at the end of the day, and turns your backyard into a warm, welcoming place for everyone. With just a few tools and some supplies that can be found in your own garage or at any hardware store, you’ll be roasting s’mores fireside in no time.

Supplies:

  • Stone pavers, bricks or cinder blocks (non-flammable materials)
  • Sand or gravel
  • Shovel
  • 18 inches of string
  • Two stakes

Plotting Your Spot

Scout out your backyard and pick an area that is at least 25 feet away from any structures, low-hanging trees or power lines. Mark the center of the pit with a stake and tie your string around it. Pull the string taunt and tie it to another stake. Walk around your center stake and draw your perimeter line with the stake at the end of the string to make your outline.

Creating a Strong Base

Creating a Strong Base

With your circle clearly defined, dig a few inches deep within the entire area. Start lining the pit with your pavers, bricks or cinder blocks, stacking the stones in additional layers until the wall is at least 12 inches tall. Next, fill the fire pit with several inches of sand or gravel to create a fireproof base, ensuring that your wall is still 12 inches higher than your base.

Now, with your base and walls complete, it’s time to light a fire and enjoy your new backyard attraction.
