DIY Fire Pit: How to Build a Fire Pit | The Home Depot

Whether youre making smores or hosting friends, here are some tips to pickingor buildingthe right fire pit for you.

For a Simple Smore

Casual marshmallow toasting is simple with a ready-made fire pit like this one from Hampton Bay. It is easy to move around and keeps you safe from flames with an ember screen. Just make sure to clear them out when youre finished using it, says Chris Rogers, Department Supervisor at The Home Depot in Summerville, South Carolina. Id recommend going out the morning after and getting rid of the leftover wood or charcoal so it doesnt hold moisture against the metal.

For Pleasing the Party Crowd

If a custom pit is what youre looking for, this step-by-step guide will tell you all the right materials and precautions to take.

Chriss biggest piece of advice is to ensure your bricks or concrete pavers fit together before adding adhesive. Id encourage anybody, before they use any mortar or gravel, to build it in place exactly the way they want to put it together, Chris says. That will help you troubleshoot and avoid a headache.

And if you have questions along the way, stop by your local store for help.
