I have always wanted a fire pit and after getting the land level it was just a matter of figuring out where to put it, I decided on the lower half as to keep the upper section for play time etc.

I started out by just moving some landscape blocks I already had from a tiny retaining wall, it was almost enough but not exactly so the rocks are different colors due to new/old issues. Also not the best photo of my garden actually looking good...

After that I moved onto doing a larger circle around it using black Mulch, maybe not the best choice but financially it is. I put weed blocker down and than mulch on top also I have ran a power cable down to the pit for future lighting.

Buried the electrical cable after running in some PVC line, and then lit the fire pit and relaxed with a beer... more photos will follow as I continue to work on it
