Fire Pit Ring – DIY or Store Bought?


Who said that a fire pit ring is just for the winter? Just like you don’t need an excuse to spend time with friends and family, there is simply no reason not to use a pit during the summer. You can utilize a fire pit ring kit equally well when the temperatures are soaring – relax, sit back, and enjoy!

A fire pit can be grouped into these categories:

In & above ground

As is evident from the name, in ground ones are constructed after digging up a hole in the ground and topping it with sand and pea gravel. The pit is surrounded with bricks or stones to keep the flames away from people sitting around it. For better safety, you should place a fire pit ring insert around it, which can help to control the fire and contain any sparks or embers emitted. The pits built above ground are similar in structure as in ground ones, but they can also be constructed into a patio (stone or cement). This type of pit is slightly raised.

Portable pits

Portable units comprise a standard fire pit ring at Lowes. They can be made of steel, cast iron, fired clay, copper, and a variety of other materials. The USP is their portability, which make it convenient to install and operate. Depending on the type of pit, they require a certain level of maintenance in order to perform well for a longer period of time.

Weight the pros & cons of both types of pits before deciding – you can look up detailed information about a fire pit ring online.
