Exclusive to YardScapes in all of New England, is Fireboulder, a company specializing in artisanal fire pits. Natural stone (from an Indiana boulder farm) is hand-carved and as such, no two are alike. We love the Fireboulder in our tipi. Ours is wood-burning, complementing of its surrounds. (Fireboulders outfitted for propane gas are available, but we thought it antithetical to the tipi. Can you imagine?) In most other settings, however, the convenience of propane Fireboulders is appealing. These incredible focal points are ideal for both outdoor living rooms and commercial spaces. Fireboulders are beautiful in their simplicity and easily integrated into existing hardscapes. And, equally important as aesthetics, Fireboulders are easily maintained.

Stone or paver walkways can add elegance to any yard, are great near entrances and driveways or to reach far off places like a pond in the corner of the yard. Custom walkways can create an adventurous, winding maze of a garden path, or just be a simple route from the basement cellar to the side door.
