You know what your summer needs? A fire pit. And pronto, because that hole you dug in the side yard is probably not a legal situation. We know what you're thinking: Aren't fire pits are for fancy people with finished patios and intentional landscaping? Aren't they insanely expensive? Yes, and no. There are definitely more expensive fire pits out there than inexpensive ones, because the materials involved in making a good one aren't exactly cheapo (think: cast iron, stone, concrete, etc.). But with a little persistence, you'll find that affordable options do exist. We can smell the campfire scent already. Do your research to be sure you're setting up a safe situation—that is, you'll want to set the fire pit on a nonflammable, non-grass surface, such as a wide stoop or brick patio—and then shop one of our top 10 picks for fire pits under $150. There's a range, depending on what your backyard party plans are: Some are proper steel basins, others are fire baskets, and others are more like fire pits for cooking. But all are adorable.
