Yet, there are small yards and gardens, where one has to place his fire pit on a dangerous space. In such cases a good fire pit spark screen comes to keep the danger away!
Depending on the fire pit shape and size, fire pit screen covers differ accordingly. Hence, if you have a DIY fire pit, you will have to give the precise measures of it to the cover maker so that it suits the pit excellently. Otherwise, sparks can “crawl” out from the open areas.

Whether your fire pit cover is as simple as an iron-basin, which was bought at a local store, or is as elaborate as a handmade stone pit itself, it is undoubtedly necessary to avoid all the dangers, that every fire pit is wrought with!
