Building a Ledgestone Firepit

Step One: Gravel Base – Dig out the area for gravel base, planning for 4-6” depth of compacted gravel and diameter 3’ wider than your steel insert. Once soil is removed add your crushed limestone and compact every 2” layer.

Step Two: Block Base – Lay the first block course and level as you work along. Key tools are a torpedo level, 4’ level and deadblow hammer.

Step Three: Block Layers – Use a concrete adhesive to adhere additional layers of block together being sure to stagger joints.

Step Four: Steel Insert – Install insert before adhesive hardens and you’re done!
