Perfecting Your Bonfire

To have the perfect bonfire, you need to be prepared beforehand. The most important part of getting started is to check if it is legal. You need to make sure you are not breaking the law.

  • Pick A Location:
    • Once to see if it is legal, you need to pick a safe and comfortable location. Find a spot on your property that gives you a woodsy feel, can be perfect for everyone’s enjoyment, and be sure to stay away from wide-open areas.
      • Keep it 10 feet away from your home, garage, or any other large units.
      • Do not position it under low-hanging branches or a canopy of any type.
      • Keep your furniture at least 3 feet away
  • Getting Your Fire Ready:
    • Once your fire pit is ready to go, make sure you are ready to maintain the fire.
      • Have Tools Ready To Put Out The Fire
      • Gather Wood & Stock Up On It
      • Have Some Fun Snacks To Make With The Fire
  • Putting Out The Fire:
    • Soak, Stir, and Soak it again. Use this saying when putting out the fire.
