I'm Dan and I run fireandsaw.com - a site that focuses on news, information, and guides about chainsaws, fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, fire, pits, and outdoor cooking.
Gravel or crushed stone is one of the easiest and most affordable patio flooring ideas for a backyard fire pit design. 'Stone is an excellent choice around fire pits,' says Dan Morris of Fire and Saw. 'It's heat-resistant, durable, and provides a natural look that complements outdoor environments. It won't be spoiled by sparks either.'
All you need are rocks, paintbrushes and washable, water-based paints for this easy kid-friendly project. “Some of the stones we end up bringing home, but most of the time we leave them alongside the lake for others to enjoy later,” says Dan Morris, a chainsaw enthusiast who camps in New Zealand. His family does their rock painting by their favorite lake for swimming as it’s an easy way to clean up any mess.
It was our dream to start a business together. I do a few things but the main thing is that I’m a blogger about chainsaws and wood fire stoves on my site fireandsaw.com. We live on a big property with lots of great chances to get outdoors. And I really do love chainsaws.
