Introduction Plan Your Fire Pit Design Backyard fire pits are one of the most popular of all landscaping features. They are attractive, functional and provide an outdoor gathering place. Ideally, a fire pit is constructed from fireproof material on a flat, level area at least 25 feet from a house or tree. Fire pits are strictly governed by local building codes. Some codes require the pit to be encircled by a border of sand or gravel. So before you decide to add one to your backyard, know the code in your area. The style and shape of a fire pit can vary. Our circular fire pit is about 2′ tall x 5′ total diameter and a 3′ interior diameter.

Investigating chimineas and steel fire rings at a nearby home center, my wife and I discovered the Fossil Stone Fire Pit from Natural Concrete Products, a $500 kit of concrete blocks and a steel fire ring.Much to my surprise, a buddy and I constructed the pit in 4 hours.
