Buy a 15 gallon wash pail from Lowe's. Get four bricks, Put the bricks inside the pail. Spread them out flat, to cover the bottom of the pail, and then set your logs on top of the bricks. This allows for airflow under your logs to keep the fire going.
Cool evenings around a fire? All of your friends will say 'count us in'--dress up the area with a wide array of plants in window boxes that help define the space, in addition to low laying landscape beds with lots of perennial color.
