The holidays are over and the much-anticipated cooler temperatures are here; perfect timing to cozy-up to a warm fire.
Draw a 49” diameter circle with marking paint on the lawn. Remove all sod inside of the circle and make it approximately 2” deep.
Be sure to level the soil
Add approximately 2” of paver base to the circle and spread evenly. Moisten paver base to aid compaction. Using a tamper, pack the entire area until firm. Then, add another inch of paver base. Level.
Place stones on the circumstance of the paver base to make a circle. Be sure to lay tightly and level.
After the first layer of stone is set, lay another layer on top. Attach layers with concrete adhesive and press firmly.
After the second layer is finished, lay a third layer and attach with concrete adhesive.
After all stones are set, install the fire ring and be sure the adhesive cure time has passed.
Pour lava rock into the bottom of the fire pit until the level reaches the bottom of the fire ring.
