DIY Fire Pit

3 Materials
2 Days
Last summer my husband and I set out to build our own fire pit and pea gravel area... The fire pit turned out great and we use it all the time.
Using pavers and pea gravel we transformed a muddy corner of our yard into a great place to sit around the fire and enjoy the evening.
This corner was in the shade and so was muddy and dark.
After our weekend transformation this corner is a beauty!
Landscaping fabric keeps the weeds at bay under the pea gravel.
A lot of bang for our buck and we did it ourselves!

    what type and color pea gravel did you use? I love the color - it gives the look of sand but a little less cat friendly ;)

    How far from your fence did you put your fire pit?

    • Homeroad Homeroad on Jun 10, 2014
      @Lou it is about 10-12 feet. Haven't burned it down yet :)
