How do I build a low maintenance fire pit that is easy to care for?
I have a small meditation garden with a small well and a large oak tree. I had a small Mexican Chiminea, but a branch fell on it an broke it. I want a fire pit so I can have open fires as well. I had a metal pit before, but it required me to empty and store it after each use, and even then it rusted and soon burnt through.
I am looking for something 36-48" (100-120 cm) that will be a permanent installation, that is easy to maintain. The ease of maintenance is critical, I am a disabled veteran with back, hip and knee issues, so I need the maintenance to be not much more than occasionally scoop out the dead ashes.
