We extended the rock circle the was on the left and made it cement. We also took the rock/gravel that their hot tub was on.
In the process of removing our dirt (and our neighbors), and putting it in our backyard for berms, dad's tractor hit a frost pocket and it looked like a whirl pool of grass in our back yard.....
Once the cement was poured, it dried to quickly (supplier error) and we were not able to scrape it in time before it dried. This meant we had to grind the cement down to have the pitch correct.
The grinder didn't work the first day so our contractor had to come back a second and grind again. After two days of grinding, the pitch was correct.
We purchased a fire pit from wayfair.com and it is on the round part of the cement.
