Matt Black vs The Jabba Fire Pit
As i woke up that Memorial Day I had flashes of an epic battle in the back yard. It consisted of a shovel, dirt, Landscaping Stones, Hammer and some kind of make shift chisel. I knew at that moment that I was going to take down this evil villian called The Jabba Fire Pit! After doing several You Tube searches and HGTV web site visits I finally convinced myself to go dig a hole and make that fire pit! To be perfectly honest, it was not that bad. And I will tell you that this battle was won in 5 easy steps..
Step 1 — Dig a hole approximately 12 inches deep in a circular pattern
Step 2 — Using a level and sand or fine dirt, lay your ground scaping stone in a cirle inside of the hole you just dug, be sure to use the dirt or sand underneath the stones and use your level to make them all level
Step 3 — Add a second row of landscaping stone on top of your first level
Step 4 — Put your excess sand in the bottom of pit, throw in some wood, strike a match and its marshmellow time!
To add a little flare to your pit, you can turn your landscaping stones out to make it more decorative. Notice in the pictures how I made both layers opposite.
Now you have your own fire pit, ENJOY! or bring some hot dogs to our house:)
