In this tutorial, we learn how to properly build a firepit. First, prep your base by filling it with dirt and small rocks. After this, set your ring down onto the dirt and make sure it's level. You can also raise it up if you want a foot rest or beverage holder. Next, apply your stone around the ring and then mortar it. Make sure all the pieces of stone fit nice and tight together. After you've done this, lock in all the joints on the stone patio by using sand and brushing it into the middle. When done, place wood in the middle and enjoy your fire!
