We had a spot in our backyard that barely got sun and was just dead grass, weeds, mud and moss. For Father’s Day I asked Katherine if I could do something with it.
I was inspired from our weekend in Suncadia and seeing the backyard living and lifestyle there. That video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDKmJKGFO_E
For this DIY Weekend project I spent less than $1,000 on everything, including grill.
I used pea gravel as the ground cover. Pea Gravel is cheap and easy to work with. And we went with a stylish gas fire pit. It was similar to the one we had at Suncadia.
Gas firepit makes it easy to clean up, not being hated by your neighbors and you don’t smell like smoke after.

I got the stone from a stone and gravel dealer. You can get pea gravel by the bag at places like Home Depot or Lowes. But I used 2 cubic yards for this backyard project. That’s a lot of stone.
It was easier to have the pea gravel delivered. The cost is about the same when you factor in delivery.
We spend a lot of time in backyard now, playing, eating, relaxing and working.
