Before you can start the building you need to plan out where the fire pit will be located. Find a nice open area of your land and mark it so that you can visualize where the fire pit will go.

Once you have an area of land marked you need to start digging. Dig a couple of inches into the ground so that the fire pit is not sitting at the surface. When you finish digging it’s important to push the ground down to make a flat area.

The pit that you make will be filled with gravel to give it a nice base. Bricks are one of the most popular things that you will use for a fire pit. Stack bricks in a circle around the pit.

Every fire pit is going to need a bowl. A bowl is a place where the wood and other materials will burn. In the last step, you will fit the bowl into the circle of bricks.
