On a practical note, you can create a DIY fire pit in your home. Ensure you have the right tools, materials, and protective equipment for the job.
Get started with building a square structure by lining three fire bricks in a row. At the end, add another brick at a right angle which will start to form the second side of the square. Leaving 5mm between each brick will encourage airflow.
It’s also vital to use firebricks because their purpose is to cope with high heat, so they won’t crack.
Continue adding the lines of three bricks until the square structure is built.
For visual appeal, the outer square of the feature can be built using natural stone bricks that match the aesthetic of your garden.
Make it nice and robust by adding a second line of bricks. When the shape is final, mark around the edge with a spade and move the bricks out of the way so the turf can be dug up. The ground needs to be level when the turf has been dug out. Then, right at the centre of the square dig an extra hole and fill it with gravel which will encourage drainage.
After, the bricks can be put back into their position to form the inner and outer square. Build up the fire pit by adding three more layers of bricks. When adding the bricks on top, overlap the bricks to help create a strong structure.
Once these are in place, use gravel across the bottom to cover the base and the fire pit is ready for action.
