  1. Heininger Portable Propane Outdoor Fire Pit
    A good no-smoke fire pit can be a valuable addition to your backyard landscape. Fire pits invite people to gather and have conversations outside in the garden, no matter what the temperature is like.

This is where a propane burner like Heininger’s portable kit comes in handy. This portable propane fire pit can be installed permanently in your backyard landscape or can be easily transported to different locations. https://bit.ly/3iwjsa0

    The Agtec Geocell provides load support and stability to base layers of gravel, rock, soil, or sand. It prevents fill from shifting or being pushed sideways.
