Should have posted this video before you built it so that you could have taken advantage of all the comment suggestions.
Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. Doesn't mean it is UN-funny, just low.
Yes! I thought of that before I read this comment!
@Blob i know this is a year old but my example would be, "Your apple" being the apple that you own, while "you're an apple" means basically "you are an apple". doesnt make sense even as insult , but I wanted to keep it as close to identical for simplicities sake.
@Bro Builds a
This dude is literally the “i don’t know the answer, lets find out together” type of person and I love it
@NURUL NAJMAINI yes, he is
@Hari Krishna sameeee
@VladimirK82 be quiet, he literally calls everyone bro, get over it, if the commenter has a problem they will say it
He really does seem like the super helpful guy...
My favourite thing about this video is that you pointed out how a half inch gap looks stupid. And then went ahead and built without it. This gives me the confidence to do the same when I build mine.
not to mention the extra space makes it much easier when it comes to sanding and resanding
i did interlock for a summer and thought the same thing at first but when the sand hardens it looks really good with the proper sized gap
@Ayush Giri qqq
My grandparents built almost an identical one in their backyard. Lovely stuff.
When digging up all that sod & soil, this might be a great time to use them as filling for a thigh-high raised garden bed or two! Put the sod upside-down at the bottom, along with old leaves, twigs, and other yard trimmings--ideally some rotting wood or aged wood chips, too, to act as a hugelkulture fill that will soak up water and help keep the bed from drying out when it hasn't rained enough. You can also layer in some kitchen scraps or partially made compost to help provide nutrients for your plants as they fully compost over time. Then fill in the remaining dug-up soil on top, and when it's full, plant the raised bed with just about whatever you like!
Great idea! I think it’s smart for us all to become more food independent, and that’s a good opportunity for reusing the soul and grass.
It's good to know I am not the only one that makes a few bonehead mistakes during a new project. I like how you took it in stride, corrected the issue, and moved along. Great job.
@OwO(Aka Error) ?
@OwO(Aka Error) ok
@Ayush Giri not funny didn't laugh
Thanks man. 🙂 Appreciate it!
Pro tip: don't use sand, use stone dust. Also, don't fill the cracks with regular sand. Instead use polymeric sand which will last for years and years to come
@AngryOtterFishing614 I also don't like to use polymeric sand cause you need very dry conditions and reapplying sand does not bother me. Neater finish and so much easier. To each their own I guess
Poly sand is currently 75 a bag and theyd need about 4-5 also sand is typically better as stone dust when wet will clump and solidify which can creat gaps under pavers leading to crooked pavers also he shouldve used abc stone instead of ordinary gravel, Also from a pro!
@Marqice Walker yes they do paver brick driveways
@Mr. Spradify idk weed cloth can work buts in my experience they always still ended up with roots through them.
I need a pro tip. Could I drive on this without any problems? Looks cool, just a little curious.
This makes me wish I didn't live in an apartment, it looks amazing. Maybe one day I'll be able to get a house where I can make something like this.
@Jumpy I own the apartment, I don't live on rent. Also no, a house with a backyard big enough for such projects would be very expensive in my city. In the future I might think about it, though.
Save up for a down payment and move out! Most houses you can pay less on a mortgage then you can for rent in apartments nowadays; if you’re smart of course! :)
That patio looks really good and good job on it. When I started working I actually worked for a landscaper specializing in stone work and one thing that I seen him do that works very well is once the patio is in instead of just sand and tamp he used a mixture of silica sand and cement powder. Mixed it dry broomed it into the cracks then plate tamped it in and then when you wash it it hardens the cement sand mix and seals it completelly in
@Ozz that's basically what's he's saying they used. Pretty sure polymeric is made from silica
We use polymeric sand..
SOOOOOOO beautiful!!!! And also love the perfect imperfections of the job. Just like real life. Thank you.
If you are a DIYer you should do a trial run of laying the pavers on a flat surface like a driveway so that you can get a feel for how the concentric circles fit together before you layout the actual pavers. I think that you should have used a paver locking sand which had finer texture to fit down between the pavers and contains some cement so that when you wet it down it locks everything in place. Otherwise nice job!

1y later still accurate...
@Bro Builds p0p P P
YouTube: oh so your looking for anything but this? Ok I’ll just fill you’re recommendation section with this video and only this video
It is the second time watching this video for me
I built a fire ring for my Eagle project. We used a lot of the same tactics that you did. We got a donation of 1.2 tons of flagstone so we decided to use that around the fire ring. And filled the gaps with a different type of gravel. It turned out super well and I’m very proud of what we got done.
Ingenious and well thought-out. Both work well and compliment each other as a team effort !! Well-dome Brothers-in-Arms.
I love this! The advice is spot on, and cool that you figured out how to do it without any cuts (and still look good) but there’s only one problem. For future hardscape projects you should put a geotextile fabric between your tamped soil, and tamped stone layer.
Agreed - I totally just forgot to put down a weed barrier. Luckily, no weeds have grown up through it yet, and hopefully they won't.
Beautiful job you did. I love it. I want to try my house next time. Thank you.
Ahh, to live in a place where rocks don't grow like potatoes. Digging anything close to an even hole is a nightmare here.
Where I live we don't dig holes we pick up giant clumps of clay, also there are so many rocks in the soil where I live that we once chipped a shovel on them
@Ace Fortaleza I feel your pain. My Great Dane died a few years ago and I dug for 3 days... I live on a 32 acre farm, and I realized that I can easily dig a huge hole for 3 days and no one would see me. 😎😎😎
@Max Goldstein Is that inches, feet, or meters?
@Maika’i Clarin kkkkko
Dirt in south Texas is pretty nice and soft, tho 15% of it is clay like and man that stuff is so dense and sticky.
Looks awesome! Looking into our yard relaxation zone and where to place things. This is a great build lesson.
Its a really neat fire pit and looks like a fun project! When I go to make my own brick laid patios, I plan on having moss grow up between the bricks I lay, so I dont think I will use much sand or gravel.
That extra 8 inches didn’t just give you an extra foot and a half of space, it gave you an extra 36ft^2. Good idea. Nice build.
I would love to have a backyard and friends to make something like this
For those looking to do this, consider installing a 1 inch metal pipe under the fire pit pavers which turns 90 degrees to lead inside the fire pit. try to make it concealed but fire need oxygen to breathe. otherwise all you will get is smoldering embers and smoke. I learned the hard way.
You could like break one of the bottom layer pavers of the fire pit in half and leave that small gap for airflow
@Bob Poppy pretty much
Gotta have airflow into the pit from the bottom to cut down on the amount of smoke
@Artur Arruda I think a chimney? That's what came up when I searched
Hey Dan, great video! You inspired me to build one myself with flagstones, so thanks!
i love watching other people making or doing something and this one is really good
The best part about this video is your transparency of the mistakes you made. Thank you for the great video!!
I don't own any property but man this inspires me to really push hard to acquire one and start doing my own diy. Great work!
I can imagine me and my 5 older brothers doing something like this 30 years ago. Of course there would be about a hundred empty beer cans scattered around the yard!
@ody vinty* same
5 dudes and 100 beers?!?! Those are rookie numbers. You gotta get those numbers up! 🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻
@ody vinty* Genetics
@ody vinty* funny! you haven't lived in Alaska?
Remember guys, most of the time when doing things like this you refer to a guide, not rules, do as you see fit.
I bought a $60 Ryobi tiller to loosen the soil. Made all the digging a little easier 👍🏼 Nice job dude!
Great job and beautiful patio. Almost inspired me to do this at my house. Luckily, my lackadaisical spirit kicked in.
“We’re bros, not pros” this literally made my day 😭😭
Really great build, but I want to give you a tip: build a flu slot on the bottom layer as well as a grate for ashes to fall down to the flu area. My grandpa built a fire pit with stones and concrete, but the flu allows air to get in under the fire, requiring less poking, as well as preventing the ash from slowly smothering your fire. He also built a custom tool, basically just a broom handle with a piece of wood on the end to scrape out old ashes that will eventuality restrict airflow from the flu. It might mess up your patio but it's a lot better than having to shovel out the ashes every so often.
@Chief Justice I forgot to mention, the large stone/concrete structure helps spread the heat further, like a big radiator.
@Dave Jones thanks
@Chief Justice Makes it safer to have fires at cottages etc. Building the high sides is safer for children and pets. That, and they can burn better than on the ground because air can get underneath. A bigger, hotter fire with less wood, and good, fine ash to add to compost.
But what's the use od fire pit
Awesome. For the record, it’s spelled flue.
Not going to lie, I watched this video months ago by accident and I think of it quite a lot. It's something I'd love to learn to do for my own house.
I feel a rototiller would have been optimal for the digging portion.
More fun doing it by hand, and a good workout too.
Remember when 2x4s were so cheap that we used them to level sand instead of keeping them in a bank vault? Good times. ;)
@Roach Larry I used to save all the lag- bolts from runners we took in & toss the wood in the dumpster. Now I have a box of 8 inch bolts, washers, & nuts I’ll never use. Could have built a sweet shed with all the wood. 🤷♂️
They like $3-4 each in Louisiana
@Undomaranel It's a plan with Biden and his UN buddies aka China. They have been planning this for the last 20 years at least starting with the Bushes. The billionaire elites are getting rid of our democracy and have hijacked our democracy and eventually we will be like China. 99% poor and totally under control... I hope they don't succeed.
Yea just start planting trees and maybe in 100 years
This guy is so creative, and the result turned out amazing 🤩
It's a kit mate.
I can’t believe that you made your own fire place. That’s so cool.
Wow I wouldn’t be able to do that at home I would probably need a pro to do that I don’t know how you two did that by your self…. Amazing!
This is so cool, thank you for making it!
Glad you like it. 🙂
This video payed for your build awesome decision recording it learned a lot from this thanks man can't wait to see more videos
That looks really nice. Mine is just a pit with large round stones around it. I like seeing the entire fire
Hello. I'm no expert but from experience, I would have run a liquid concrete mix between the paving stones and then possibly added a thin layer of sand. This is to stop weeds/moss etc. establishing themselves between the paving stones. But al in all, a very nice project
Awesome video. Really nice place to enjoy and reflect on your hard work and friendship there. Got a skidsteer and excavator would love to try do some of this stuff woth the equipment.
Very good video because it shows everything including mistakes to not make . The narrative is very helpful as there is reasoning and explanation.
That looks great. I can't wait to do something like this
Really good job guys. Looks like it was professionally done. 👍
Thank you! I love how it turned out
I love using polymeric sand for the cracks. It goes on just like sand but dries hard like concrete.
Mate... sometimes I'm really quite jealous of what is available in the US. If only I could buy a purpose-made kit like that instead of trying to struggle with full-sized bricks!
This looks incredibly good
I think that's also why they wanted u to keep a space between the pavers for that sand at the end. Kind of like grout for tiles.
Love this idea so much I am using the same design to go under kid's VULY trampoline.
Thanks for the excellent tutorial- planning on building one in my own yard in the next few weeks. In your estimation, would thrrr be any benefit to placing an elevated grate at the bottom to allow airflow and create a base of coals under the logs? Thanks for any perspective you can share. 🙏
Yeah, definitely. We added a grate later, along with some air holes in the bottom layer of stacked blocks, and the fire absolutely burns a bit cleaner.
it was so satisfing watching it go perfectly into the circle
That came out really nice thanks for sharing!!!
When ever I see one of these I always thought the sand came with time and not put there to stable it
I use to be the one to do all the stone patio kits for my old Landscaping company. This is the same procedures I did step by step except when I laid my gravel then sand I would give it a 1% slope from the center to the edge so rain could run off towards the sides and not build up on the patio itself. I also used a certain kind of sand for filling in between the stones that when wet turns into an almost concrete type material for extra strength. I kinda miss this work.
A certain type of sand? Yea polymeric sand. No other way to do it. Im sure your jobs were done to satisfaction.
I did something like this as a “covid project” and it was super fun
Thanks for posting. I am about to try this and couldn't figure out how to start in the middle. I plan on getting a compactor.
Nice! Good luck man!
When you did the grass i loved that and its beautiful
That is absolutely amazing
I love everything about this video. Well done you "Bro's". Love the channel and subscribed. Keep up the great work.
Nice! If you really want to lock those pavers in, I suggest polymeric sand!
you can make the fire pit smokeless by removing four stones at the bottom each 1/4 turn and inserting a ring with holes all round at the top of the Ring for a centrepiece, or you can do it all in stone
Why didn't you dig air holes for tubes at the bottom of the pit? It helps for proper air circulation.
Super good work. Keep up the good work guys love this video.👍👍👍👍👍
Got so good at tamping by the third layer of gravel, that he was able to do it in a single tamp. Impressive.
Wow! Great informative video. Many tips that will save me headaches. Well produced!
I do this for a living so itll be interesting to watch (posted before waching) First thoughts were dont hammer your bricks in til the end then just use the hand tamp and hit it flat also the reason for the gap is to put sand between the pavers to lock them in place without them moving and after that you tamp it then put more sand on while spraying it with water so it will soak into the cracks preventing the pavers from sinking and sand dispersing.
I just purchase my first home and I try to budget each month to do these amazing Diy
I love that you don't go follow our instructions perfectly and any issues are problems that the viewer cause, and you admit faults that you have
The reason it recommends that little space in between stones is because it allows the polymeric sand to be able to set in and hold correctly
I am looking at videos before I do my pit, glad I saw this one ! now I know what to do and what not to do, good job Thank you!!
Glad we could help! Thanks for watching!
Dude that looks freaking awesome!
some people do builds for youtube in games or 3d modeling softwares, and this dude does all of this in real life!
Looks great, wish I had the patience.
They sell landscape adhesive at lowes or home depot that would be great for the top of that fire pit. If someone sits on it or a kid or pet is playing on it they potentially could come off. That helps prevent it.
@Paula Smith about $1400 for the kits. Then a couple hundred more for sand, gravel, and misc materials.
@Nikolai those are larger home improvement retail stores in my local area.
What is Lowe’s or Home Depot?
How much was the final cost?
Yeah. Adding a little cement into the sand being pushed down into the patio will darken the colour so it matches the stone and will help bind it all together, but it is optional. Not adding mortar between the bricks of the firepit is a bad idea.
I like how you set the turns up for hand-tamping the gravel in such a way that each of your circuits will be smaller than his. Very clever ;)
Ha, I suppose you're right 😁
i was having a bad panic attack when i got this in my recommended, and god, did it help, your voice is so calming and it's so satisfying seeing it all come together thank you so much
I did a similar project with my son. When I started using work gloves my hands thanked me.
