Almost everyone loves hanging out by the fire pit while lounging in a yard. Here are a few fire pit ideas that might inspire you to build or buy one.
There are few things more welcoming in an outdoor space than a fire pit. Fortunately, these amenities come in shapes and sizes to fit nearly every budget and landscape style.
Many cultures, particularly nomadic ones would cut the turf above the fire-pit in a turf cutting ceremony, replacing the turf afterwards to hide any evidence of the fire. Elements of this ceremony remain in traditional youth organizations such as the Woodcraft Folk.
Essentially, to make a fire pit only a hole is required in order to safely contain a fire. This can be as simple as digging a hole in the ground, or as complex as hollowing out a brick or rock pillar. A wood burning fire pit should be located at least ten feet (three metres) away from structures for safety. Use of a fire pit in adverse conditions should be avoided, and basic fire safety precautions apply.
