We decided to use some Alabama brown decorative pea gravel… This decision was based on cost… Doing a completely slate stone florr was going to be more than the tipi itself. They dropped it as close as they could to the tipi…unfortunately that was about 65ft away.
Before we put the gravel and stone in we layed landscape fabric. I used a cheap bag of play sand to weight it down instead of using the giant staples. Its cheaper and you dont have to worry about the staples coming back up on you.
Now it was time to move the pea gravel to the tipi..
Xman was a big help with his new “shuggle”
It took about 2.5 tons to fill the 20ftx20ft space.
Now it is time to Raise the rest of the poles!…
