Fire pits are the perfect outdoor feature. Not only do they elevate a space with their dynamic appearance, but they’re also fun hangouts for friends and family. Thankfully, building a fire pit is just a matter of time and effort. While building a fire pit is definitely hard work, it’s worth it for those cozy nights under the stars.


1. Safety first

Safety is the biggest issue when it comes to building a fire pit. After all, they are literal pits of fire. Once you decide where you need to place your fire pit, you should clear away all flammable materials within five feet of the area. This includes any low hanging tree branches. Remember that building a fire pit involves a lot of heavy lifting and digging, which can be dangerous for some people.
