With the weather getting colder now is the perfect time to cosy up to a fireplace. The Stonemasters team have been busy this winter installing fire pit areas. This is one example created for a client in Kingsholme. This particular client was aiming to get retaining on her back yard due to the slope; instead together we opted for a fire pit area with communal sandstone seating and reshaping the current slope to be more maintainable.
By utilising a variety of rock shapes and sizes not only creates a clearly defined path and inviting space to sit around the fire pit but also adds depth and contrast to the design.
Sandstone rock walls are highly versatile and provide a stunning yet durable retaining solution. This is one example of how customisable sandstone walls can be to suit the client’s individual needs and taste. All three walls were built utilising B-grade rock and a similar design; however, one client wished to include steppers and another a garden bed.
