Your next step is to start digging! Since youve already decided on the size of your firepit, all you have to do is dig an appropriately sized hole. Next, use bricks of the same height and place them at the surface level of the pit. From there, begin creating simple stacked rows, making sure to offset the vertical joints of each brick. When your pit has reached your desired and pre-planned height, youre ready to move on to the next step. Support the bricks you have laid by adding firmly packed soil around the area. You can also use gravel for the floor of the pit, smoothing as you add it in. Your final step is to add in top caps to the walls.
Firepit Tools: These tools are mainly used to tend the fires. You can buy a set or can just order fire poker and a pair of tongs, used for tending the fire and to move the logs, if they have been used to light the fire. Outdoor Firepit Screens: These screens are wire mesh devices attached to the outer edge of the outdoor firepit. The mesh is used to prevent fire and ashes from spilling out of the pit. There are various designs that you can get with the meshes. These meshes can be used in different ways when the pit is turned into an oven. You can feel the heat while keeping safe.
Seat distance from the firepit is critical. Too close and the fire will be too hot; too far away and the heat wont reach you. You can vary the distance with each seat but we found that for a pit 800mm in diameter the seats should be about 1m away from the pit. This allows people to walk in front of each other around the fire. Once the rock seats are in place the next job was to pour concrete around the pit and around the bottom of the seats so that the outside line of concrete joins all the stones about halfway. The back of the rocks protrudes out into what will become turf.
As they are portable, outdoor firepits are easy to move from one place to another. You can carry your set to a picnic spot far from home without much difficulty. There are various accessories that can come with an outdoor firepit. You can buy them to enhance the safety and beauty of the fire pits. Here are some basic structural components of an outdoor fire pit: Fill: This may refer to the firepit glass crystals, which are uniquely formulated to avoid the fuel from melting too quickly. These glass crystals are available in different colors, so they emanate different colors when they burn. Another material that is popularly used as pit fill is lava rock. Although, natural wood can also be used as a fuel, using these specially formulated kinds of fuel makes it easy to move the firepit around.
