Enhance Your Outdoor Space

One of the biggest trends we have seen in recent years is the beautifying of outdoor spaces. A few very popular applications for stone work are the outdoor kitchens and outdoor fireplaces. A very masculine and beautiful look is the stacked stone. One type of a stacked stone fireplace is the dry stack fireplace, which uses the weight and friction between large rocks that are stacked horizontally to create stability. In addition to the stacked style we also use cement behind and underneath the stone to ensure a more stable finished product. Whenever we use cement, the cement gives a grout look that is preferred by many people. While the stacked stone look is more natural. Outdoor kitchens are also becoming very popular. People enjoy using their outdoor spaces to entertain family and friends. An outdoor kitchen can be a simple built in grill with some countertop space or as complex as a complete kitchen.
