Opportunities to spend quality time with family and friends come easily with Southern California outdoor living.

The temperate weather of the region you choose to call home make your acquaintances across the country jealous, so it would be a shame not to take full advantage. Outdoor living means outdoor dining and decorative wall stones are the perfect foundation for barbecues, fire pits and tables.

Angelus Paving Stones’ Stonewall® II and Rustic Wall units can also be used to easily build barbecues. The large block size creates a stable structure for the barbecue and countertop and the textured finish gives it a warm, natural appeal. Combined, those two elements make for a fast, attractive barbecue installation and an outdoor entertainment area that will last for years.

The units can be built to your specifications, suitable for propane, natural gas or charcoal. A larger L-shaped barbecue gives you more countertop space for organization and food prep Add a bar riser, or matching table to create space for your guests. And a fire pit provides a fun way to warm up with family and friends on those cool desert nights.

Many barbecue manufacturers recommend that vents be provided in barbecue islands for optimum performance. The small spaces that naturally occur between the wall blocks are sufficient for proper airflow, so vents should not be necessary. It is recommended that the blocks be drystacked to make sure the layout is correct and that the barbecue unit and optional door fit properly, then disassembled and re-installed using concrete adhesive to permanently bond the units in place. Two parallel one-quarter-inch beads of adhesive are recommended on every course. Countertops can be any non-combustible material of your choosing.

Downloadable plans for four different barbecue layouts plus tables and fire pits can be found at Angelus Paving Stones’ web site.
