A Blazing Wood Pit

Have you ever been on an amazing camping trip? Sat around the fire roasting marshmallows? A wood burning fire pit is just like a campfire and you can have it all right in your backyard. A wood fueled fire pit provides a treat for family and friends, especially on cool evenings.

Unilock wall products such as Brussels Dimensional Stone are perfect for providing an attractive and heat resistant fire pit for the rustic setting of a log fire. Brussels Dimensional Stone has the textured surface and varied coloring of aged natural stone and is available in a variety of colors, from the warm, earthy brown of Mahogany Ash to the deep granite black of Midnight Charcoal.

The only downside to a wood burning fire pit is that you’ll need an dry area for storing the wood. Fortunately, Unilock wall systems are versatile enough to be able to incorporate into an effective wood storage bench or other space saving storage feature.


Natural Gas

A natural gas fire pit will never run out of fuel. You won’t have to buy, store, and chop wood, making it extremely convenient and hassle free. A sunken or low profile pit is ideal for easy connection to a natural gasline, but Unilock wallstone can allow for taller natural gas fire pits as well. Once a natural gasline is installed, you’ll have permanent access to flames on demand. Be sure to choose your spot wisely or consult an Authorized Unilock Contractor for deciding the best positioning for your Unilock natural gas fire pit.


Propane Power

Propane fire pits are similar in design to their natural gas counterparts, however they allow portability after the fact. Because Unilock fire pit kits need not be installed with mortar, they make the repositioning of your propane fueled fire pit possible. Fire table designs are also available from Unilock, offering an alternative outlet for a propane source. These offer height and the perfect foreground to a stunning view.


Which One is Right for Me?

Consider your personal preferences and whether or not you prefer the rewarding experience of a wood fire and aroma of woodsmoke or if you prefer simple and safe convenience. In choosing from the Unilock range, consider the style of your backyard and the architectural features of your home to match, complement or contrast. For easy assembly, consider one of our fire pit kits and do it yourself, or consult an Authorized Unilock Contractor for best results in creating and installing a custom design.
