How To Build An In-Ground Fire Pit

Relaxing by a backyard fire is the perfect way to spend an evening. Here’s how to build a classic in-ground fire pit. A commitment to your family, a commitment to your friends, and a commitment to having fun even when it’s cold out.


The size of the fire pit is completely up to you, for a bigger pit add a stone or two to each ring, and for a smaller pit remove a stone.

The pavers are the same shape and size, and fit together several ways to create a natural look. The patio will sit even with the ground, and the depth of the pit will depend on the thickness of your patio stones and concrete block lining.


Many homes have fireplaces or propane stoves inside, but there’s nothing quite like enjoying a fire pit under the stars in your own backyard.
