Adding Pea Gravel to the Fire Pit Area

A beautiful fire pit area takes yearly maintenance.

Without a doubt my most popular post of the past 6 years is my DIY Building a Fire Pit post. 

Several years ago we built the fire pit and added pea gravel to a muddy corner of the yard. 

This weekend we added a new top dressing of pea gravel to the area because time has taken a toll on the area. 

After a while the rocks settle and frankly must disappear into mid air because now there are just not enough rocks and the landscaping cloth is showing through.

We also replaced the fence so that caused more unsettling of the area. 

You can see where the edging isn't even covered anymore.

We had 2 yards pea gravel delivered to the driveway and using a borrowed vintage wheelbarrow my very strong husband hauled the pea gravel into the back yard.  

I actually did the hard part of spreading it around on top of the old gravel. (LOL)

You can bet I've got my eye on that old wheelbarrow... I'm seeing it filled with beautiful planted flowers!

{I'm hoping my Dad doesn't want it back}

A little hard work paid off because this area gets a lot of use in the summer!
