Benefits of Natural Stone Fire Pits

Natural stone fire pits are a classy and elegant addition to any landscape. Strong and durable, they will provide long-lasting heat throughout the evening.

Frequently Asked Questions About Natural Stone Fire Pits

What Is the Best Natural Stone for Fire Pits?

Flagstone, marble, granite, and slate are well suited for use in fire pits. Sandstone, river rock, and natural rock are not suitable as these can absorb water and explode as they heat up. When using natural stone, it’s advisable to install a cover that can help keep the rocks dry and protected.

Is It OK to Put a Fire Pit on Grass?

It is not advisable to put a fire pit on the grass. Even thoroughly soaked, the heat from the fire will dry the grass out and create a fire hazard. Similarly, you want to make sure that you have 20-25 feet of clearance between the fire pit and your home, patio, or deck.

How High Should My Fire Pit Be?

Ideally, you want your fire pit to be set at between 15 and 20 inches above the ground. This helps contain the ashes and embers while also providing a comfortable foot rest for guests seated around the fire.

Does a Stone Fire Pit Need a Liner?

Liners are essential for preventing underground root fires. Whether you choose a stainless steel, carbon steel, concrete, stone, or cast iron liner, it will help provide essential structural support for the fire pit.
