Simple and inexpensive wood burning fire pits can be built in the ground using the now classic method found in campsites and parks today. It’s as easy as 123.1-Dig a hole in the ground. 2-Add gravel and sand for drainage and and to provide a level base. 3-Line it with a metal ring to help contain the flames and focus the heat. Some local authorities only allow fire pit’s that are raised up off the ground, so please check first!! Root fires are a concern so don’t forgo the gravel and sand layer. Some local authorities insist on a base of 25cm if the fire pit is not sitting directly upon a rock outcrop! If you have decided to burn gas then you can either run gas lines to the fire pit or incorporate a propane tank into the design, preferably concealed. We strongly suggest using a certified technician when connecting natural gas or propane to any fire feature. Gas fire pit kits come in all shapes and sizes. You can buy burner kit to incorporate into your design or an entire structure that comes ready for you to apply your finish of choice.
