Better info, more items
So many people who have hung out with the warmth and played in the sand of my wonderful Fire Gardens have asked me how they could make one of their own. I’ve taken the guess work out of all the fittings and sizes and put together a few kits that I use all the time in my work. I’ve also put together instructions on how to use these kits to make your own Fire Garden.

In addition to these kits you will need a container that is able to handle high temperatures and be fully sealed underneath (leaks or drain holes will also allow gas out). A 55 gal drum works well. The weldable coupler provided will need to be welded though the bottom, legs added, then simply attach the fittings, ring, hose, propane BBQ tank and add sand. Sand should be 3-4″ above the ring. It will take several seconds for the sand to fill with gas and rise to the top. Once lit it’s time to play in the sand with simple tools. This works best after dark when you can turn the flame down very low until you only see a blue flame.
