Why Summer is a Great Time for a Fire Pit in Boston, MA


When you think fire pit, you probably envision cold nights huddled around a fire to stay warm. But what if we told you that you don’t have to wait for the colder months like fall and winter, to get great use out of this hardscape feature? Here’s why summer is a great time for a fire pit in Boston, MA:


Barbecue Anyone?

Barbecuing is a great American tradition that extends across states and of course to Boston, MA. Complementing the outdoor setting of your grill or outdoor kitchen area with a fire pit can give guests a place to gather while they keep the chef company. The Rivercrest Firepit kit even comes with a firepit grill which fits securely into the fire pit. Coastal Slate and Buff are your color options for this firepit, and the authentic stacked flagstone look of Rivercrest Wall, can bring a classic feel to the chosen placement area.

The Sunset Firepit Kit is another choice for enjoying an open fire in summer, as it comes in both circular and square styles, with an optional smoke-reducing insert with winch and grill, in Stainless Steel.

Great Hangout Spot for Family Entertainment

When the kids are out of school for summer vacations, you can keep them entertained by recreating a campfire feel with a Unilock fire pit. S’mores roasting, or skewered hot dogs over the open fire, are a treat kids won’t soon forget, especially if you add scary stories to the night’s activities. Under the flickering firelight of a custom-made fire pit made of Brussels Dimensional System with Brussels Fullnose coping, your kids will love this summer outdoor treat. Whether it’s summer family evenings or days out by the pool, a fire pit is great for keeping the kids – and the grownups – in your family entertained.


Cozy All Year Round

Even in the warmer summer months, fire pits provide a cozy feel that naturally draws people to want to gather around. Fire pits are an obvious focal point for any backyard, and family and visitors alike will enjoy the warmth and hypnotic glow of a fire. A fire pit during summer is a great idea! The style of firepit you choose isn’t dependent on the weather, but on your own particular tastes. If you want something that is sure to give the aged feel and look of natural stone, then Estate Wall is a great choice. Available in earth-tone colors, Almond, Sierra, Walnut and Granite, Estate Wall makes for a rugged yet elegant fire pit design. Lineo Dimensional Stone on the other hand delivers a sleek style. It is available in Almond Grove, Midnight Charcoal, Limestone, and Sierra, and as it allows for multiple plank-like sizes and shapes, lets you combine a modern aesthetic with the natural warmth of fire.


A fire pit is the ultimate gathering point for any backyard. With so many choices available, both pre-packaged and custom-made, you don’t have to be overwhelmed when deciding which choice is best for you. Unilock Authorized Contractors in Boston, MA, are more than willing to help you figure out which fire pit will make your summer complete.
