DIY Fire Pit & Gravel Surround

We brought this muddy, shady corner of our yard life in just a weekend. By covering the corner with pea gravel and a new fire pit we were able to create a functional and favorite corner of the yard.
Here is the BEFORE... a muddy, unused corner of our yard.
By using paving stones, we stacked several layers to create the fire pit.
The unused corner got a face lift with a ladder, and planters.
In one weekend, and a lot of sweat we turned this corner into a useable place for the family to gather. Edging and landscape cloth were used to cover the grass and hold in the pea gravel.

    Is it okey if the base of the fire pit was cemented?
