This spring was finally going to be the spring I got a fire pit. I’ve wanted one for a very long time (fire pits are awesome!) and my husband and I had saved up the necessary funds.
We found a landscaper (hi, Sam!) through word of mouth and met with him to make a plan. I know, we could have just bought a premade fire pit from Home Depot, put some chairs around it, and called it a (much less expensive) day. But our yard is actually pretty buggy and slanty, so we wanted to carve out an official area for a patio and the fire pit. I wanted a space off to the side that would be private (a lot of our yard can be seen from the road) and give us an awesome place to hang out — and make s’mores! — with friends late into the summer nights.
“How hard could it be?” I stupidly asked.
