Building the fire pit
I did a little bit of research on what type of fire pit style I wanted to achieve. From there I watched a few DIY YouTube videos which gave me lots of confidence that it was something the kids and I could build together.
For the fire pit, we ordered the Pleasant Hearth Fire Ring which is an insert for your firepit that also helps contain the fire. I also love the classic minimal appearance of the black steel hearth that tends to blend graciously with the rest of our backyard and house finishes.
Next up we used 36 of the Decor Precast Garden Wall Stones to build around the surrounding of the hearth fire ring. I love these stones because they have a rough organic stone like feel, dark grey blended hues and are suitable for making straight, concave, or curved surfaces. The boys loved helping me arrange them around the hearth ring!
