2014-06 Backyard Firepit

In May of 2014 we contracted with Village Landscape Development of Fenton, Michigan to do hardscape work.  As part of that project they had to disassemble two stacked block retaining walls.  Before they started we decided to use some of the blocks to create a low fire pit in the back yard that we could use to burn tree trimmings and scrap wood from construction projects.  We were not allowed to do this in Farmington Hills, but out here in “the country” there is no prohibition and it is a common practice.  Here are a few photos of that project:
