A natural stone firepit (as does a segmental firepit) provide many evenings of fun with your children and friends. We build firepits that burn wood or gas and can be circular, square or into a shape that meets your vision.
Artistic Landscapes of Rowley, MA builds natural stone firepits as well as segmental block firepits throughout the North Shore region of Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. We build our firepits with Heat Resistant mortar to reduce the mortar from cracking. The interior space, the area where you burn the wood, is typically 24” or 30” in diameter. We recommend a steel ring around the inside of the firepit to protect the stones from cracking under the heat of your fire. We also provide you a firepit cover. The cover makes the firepit look clean when not in use and it limits the ability of children or animals accessing the firepit interior.
Most firepits are built to burn wood but we also build gas firepits. Gas firepits are easy to turn on/off whenever you want to have a fire. We work closely with the electrician and gas fitter/plumber during the construction of your firepit. Your options are plentiful with a gas firepit such as using a remote control to turn the fire on/off and selecting the color stones/glass on top of the firepit.
Additional Hardscape Services
Your patio will be a great gathering place for your family and friends. Your patio may include a firepit, ambient lighting, dining and kitchen areas around your house.
Many walkways are built with pavers manufactured by Unilock or Techo-Bloc, two North American companies. We also build walkways using natural flagstone or porcelain tiles (which provide a contemporary look and feel to your walkway).
We are led by a licensed mason and build steps (granite steps, natural stone steps with bluestone or limestone treads) in accordance with building code.
Your outdoor kitchen can have a built-in grill and refrigerator, cabinets for storage and topped with a beautiful countertop for all of your entertaining needs.
A natural stone retaining wall can revitalize your yard. A natural stone retaining wall becomes a beautiful focal point and allows your yard to have more usable area. A wall can be built without visible mortar.
A sitting wall is a great addition around a firepit for friends to gather. When a retaining wall is approximately 18" higher than the patio or lawn this it can provide additional seating.
We build paver driveways, outline asphalt driveways with natural cobblestones and create cobblestone aprons at the beginning of driveways.
Cobblestones set in concrete keep the grass from growing into your garden beds. Cobblestones make an attractive start to your driveway.
Custom built pergola and trellis which complement your house and landscape are available. A pergola over your patio provides some shade.
Stone accents such as mailbox posts, light posts, benches, tables, raised planters and ponds add beauty and interest to your property while requiring no maintenance.
