  • We're going to show you some simple updates that can keep the party hoppin'.

  • Fire pits have been a special gathering spot for people since the invention of, fire.

  • Here are four updates that you can make to your backyard grass area, that will truly

  • be the talk of the neighborhood.

  • They are simple, fast and cost just a few bucks.

  • Start with the base.

  • Pick a flat spot away from trees and a good distance from your home.

  • Dig up the sod, add some gravel and sand. Base done.

  • Now, the Fire Ring. You can build one from the ground up or just pick up a ready made

  • sturdy 36" steel fire bowl with a grated cover.

  • Set that down in in the middle of the base and it's ready to burn.

  • You can do benches or my favorite, these woven chairs. They are super comfortable, stylish

  • and inexpensive.

  • How about a little naturalcor? Set planters around the perimeter of the base and plant

  • with annuals and perennials.

  • While small trees and shrubs such as rosemary or lavender can create a pleasant visual border

  • that also helps define the space.

  • The Moon, natures night light, is awesome, but you'll probably want to augment your fire

  • pit lighting with a bit more ambient illumination.

  • Torches and lanterns are all great choices for your fire pit area.

  • That's it. A great outdoor space, created in no time for a little bit of money. You

  • can do a couple of these updates or all four. Now get out there and start creating some

  • memories!

We're going to show you some simple updates that can keep the party hoppin'.
