When it comes to building out new fire pits it’s crucial to understand the nine keys to finishing any fire pit.
9 Keys to a Finished Fire Pit
- Before anything can be built, finding and spotting out the best location for the fire pit is imperative. Normally, the best spot is where there is plenty of space, far from any trees or bushes.
- After you have found the perfect spot, drawing three circles around the center is next. At the core of the fire pit should be three feet in diameter. After the three foot diameter circle, a five foot circle must be implemented. The seating would typically be a twelve or fifeteen foot circle in diameter, as the last ring.
- Once the fire pit dimensions are laid out, digging up the ground is the next step to a solid finish. Once there’s trench space available from where the diameters are, the concrete mix of your choice will be poured.
- During the waiting process, pressing in and settling the stones into place is the next part of the equation. There are several different stone options for capping off the fire pit. Generally, homeowners prefer to have smoother stones rather than something more rough or jagged.
- Laying the first level of stones is after waiting, pressing, and settling the stones. Brick should be laid between the inner ring of the pit and the outer ring, as a stabilization technique.
- Continue to lay all the levels of stone. There are many different layers to a finished pit. It’s vital to know exactly the height, length, and depth of the finished pit you envision.
- Before you cap the in between cracks with scrap stone and mortar, it’s important to wait for everything to settle over time. Time is your biggest friend when it comes to putting together the structure.
- Right before you're finished, laying the final cap stones will allow for everything to come together tight. There will be a tight structure to your fire pit after the cap stones are put on.
- The last part of the equation is dealing with the seating area the right way. Within the twelve foot diameter you dug out, laying down landscape cloth which will help provide for comfort.
