Build an Outdoor Fire Pit
You will need:
Cast concrete wall stones
As you consider building an outdoor fire pit, be sure to first chck the building codes in your area for specifications and regulations. You should select a spot that is away from your house and not near any low-hanging trees or other structures. Be sure of where underground cables and lines are so that you can avoid them, as well.
What to do:
Assemble pavers (we recommend Paving Delite) around a circle that is the approximate size and shape of the desired fire pit. Fire pits are typically about 36 to 44 inches in diameter.
Dig a hole approximately 12 inches deep in the circle (and of the same diameter as the circle).
Pour sand into the bottom of the hold and tamp the sand so that it is level.
Lay wall stones around the perimeter of the hold. Continue stacking the wall stones so that they are about 12 inches above the surrounding ground.
Pour a layer of sand into the ring of stones so that it covers the first layer, approximately 4 inches deep.
