​@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.

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.

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!

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

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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
