Create A Backyard Fire Pit

6 Materials
8 Hours

Adeina from Creative Lifestyles With Adeina says "we create a lot of DIY projects, but when we removed an old hot tub, we had no idea we would have almost everything we needed to create another wonderful DIY project".

We had an open space in our deck from an old hot tub that didn't work anymore. I took some old pavers, old bricks, and some extra rocks I already had in the back yard and created a fire pit that is perfect for those cool fall nights. The only thing I had to buy to create this was the fire pit decorative ring and the lava rocks.

The Before

This was the mess left after we moved the hot tub. I didn't want to throw all of this away so we created something we can use.

The Clean Up

After cleaning up the mess, we had to level out the ground. This was pretty easy, but watch out for those critters living under the rocks.

The Finished Fire Pit

After you have everything leveled out, it's time to lay the pavers and the river rocks. I ended up having to buy a couple of bags of river rocks to fill in where I ran out.

All in, we only spent around $100 dollars to create a space we can now use again.

Nice Place To Relax

Now we have a nice place to relax outside on those cool Fall nights.
