I would like to build a fire pit in the backyard. Anyone ever done this?
Not sure on diameter, but nothing huge. Was thinking I would dig a few inches in the ground. Maybe 6" or 8" in. Fill with gravel. Then take some landscape type bricks and ring the hole up to maybe 3 bricks high around.
Does this sound right? Am I making it too simple? Do I need to buy a steel fire ring thing? Or should a hole lined with gravel be enough "protection"? Not looking to catch the whole yard on fire
Once that is done, I'd like a spark screen over it. That metal mesh top that comes with those fire pits you can buy. Anyone have a good idea on how to make this?
