How much do you enjoy your Illinois backyard? If it’s less than a comfortable refuge, gathering place, and central feature of your property, maybe it’s time to consider a landscape remodel. Adding hardscape and softscape features to beautify your yard and increase the functionality of the design will greatly improve your family’s enjoyment of your home while also maximizing your curb appeal and property value. One feature that can serve as a focal point for an effective backyard remodel is a fire pit that incorporates the natural coloring and rich textured surfaces of Unilock wallstone. By choosing an option that complements the colors of your home and other hardscape features, you can successfully transform your yard and provide a welcoming atmosphere for gatherings.
Brussels Dimensional Stone
Brussels Dimensional Stone is ideal for creating a fire pit with a weathered, rustic appearance that complements a relaxed outdoor setting. Available in a number of distinct colors, Brussels Dimensional Stone allows you to match the facade of your home or pick tones from your landscape to highlight. These rich color options include Coffee Creek for varied warm and dark undertones, Sierra for a deep earthy shade, and Prairie for a welcoming ambience. Brussels Dimensional Stone also offers the natural coloring of Limestone for a universally compatible gray, and Sandstone for a subtle golden charm. This versatile stone is suitable for many outdoor applications from grill islands to retaining walls, allowing you to create a unified design with matching elements.
As a complement to the Brussels Dimensional Stone, Unilock offers Brussels Fullnose coping. While sharing a weathered texture and available shades, this coping stone has a rounded edge, making it ideal for a decorative top layer to your fire pit. Should you desire a place to sit and relax during gatherings, choose this option for a smooth and comfortable fire pit seating area. The colors available, while various, share a richness that will project a natural, warm environment, especially when the fire pit is in use.
Lineo Dimensional Stone
Should your home follow a more modern architectural pattern, a weathered appearance might be inappropriate for your landscape design. In this case, Lineo Dimensional Stone is a better option for a sleek aesthetic. These blocks present straight, clean lines and a finely textured surface. You can also easily incorporate these building units into any vertical hardscape element. With colors including Sandalwood, Granite, and Sierra available, your modern landscape will seamlessly continue the schematic standard set by your home itself.
Yet another option for fire pit construction is Unilock Rivercrest Wall. In appearance, these blocks resemble stacked flagstone, making this choice ideal for traditional homes or those with an eye for classic, cottage designs and rustic themes. These stones are available in two easy to match natural colors: the elegant gray of Coastal Slate and the subtle sandstone gold of Buff. Whether your landscape design lends itself toward weekend living or historical architecture, this choice will stand out as classic when your fire pit feature is complete.
