The magic of fire is ancestral, and having a fire pit in your garden can be a great way to reproduce the atmosphere of a campfire, whenever you want.
There are two ways you can enjoy this accessory: you can do it yourself, or buy it, ready-made, from a store. In any case, you will find that there are a lot of things you need to decide on or to consider, from design and fuel options to safety precautions.
When it comes to the safety of your home, you do not have to risk anything, so keep in mind that a DIY fire pit might be unsafe. A fire pit is not just a hole in the ground. It must be made from non-combustible materials (natural stone, brick, metal), surrounded by a safety zone and placed in such a way as to ensure the safety of your entire property. You will need to find a good place that is located away from the residential building and from other outbuildings that could be affected by sparks carried by wind, as well as away from utilities and trees.
If your fire pit is not built properly, and the elements that ensure the safety of your property are not considered, you risk a lot of unwanted problems. Therefore, if you are not really good at this kind of construction, you should not opt for a DIY fire pit.
