There is some guy here locally advertising he can build firepits, materials an all for $300. Gravel base, block, bowl,grill, WTF By the looks of the picture it's a 36" round pit 3 courses high an no cap, no courses buried in the ground!! No wounder real Landscapers can't find any work. or clients are like your way higher then some other clowns!! Quility must count for nothing anymore!!

I dug my brother-in-laws firepit at 1am pickeled beyond belief. He had a load of locking ring brick in the corner of the garage from some other landscaper project that went wrong. Anyways next morning we looked at it and looks aboot perfect. I'll bring in some class 2 for base today if we get rain.

I just did a custom pit with fire-block, fire-stop mortar, re-bar, 3 inch concrete base, etc..

Needless to say the materials alone were well over 300. Even the kits you can buy now cost in the neighborhood of 800 bucks.
