You should also keep it at least 20 feet away from nearby structures, brushes, or lower trees. Don’t forget to check your local regulations to make sure your fire pit is legal.

Mark the center of the pit and measure outwards to the half distance of the diameter. Mark the surrounding lawn and start digging to 6 to 12 inches depth. After that, make a smaller, three- to four-inch-deep circle inside the fire pit. Fill the inner circle with stones to create a natural drainage. Cover the entire pit base with two inches of sand.
