Get the most out of your yard this season!
~ by Jen Nonenmacher
When I first visited Linwood Stove & Fireplace, located at 965 Washington Street in Hanover, and had the pleasure of meeting owners Linwood and Allison Stone it was the beginning of fall and we were preparing for the winter to bare down on us. Well, now winter has come to a close, summer is just around the bend and it’s time to switch gears and think about how you are going to maximize your home and your free time this summer. Now that Linwood has met your indoor heating needs and exceeded your expectations, it’s time to turn to them to think about the change of seasons and outdoor living.
By now you know that Linwood Stove & Fireplace isn’t just your all-in-one resource for indoor products—they are also experts in the design and construction of outdoor hearths, patios, walkways, stoves, pizza ovens, full-size outdoor kitchens and all kinds of outdoor living spaces—the list goes on and on and the possibilities are endless!

With over 20 years experience in the business of masonry and carpentry Linwood is unsurpassed in their expertise and attention to detail.
When you hire the folks at Linwood Stove & Fireplace to do a job, you are hiring experts in the fields of masonry and carpentry. In fact, masonry is where this business began and from there organically expanded when in 2008, the storefront located at 965 Washington Street in Hanover was opened. As Allison Stone, co-owner, explains this was a logical next step for the business, “We were asked so often while working on masonry jobs about products like stoves, hearths, and outdoor living and cooking areas it seemed like a natural next step to open a retail store where we could focus on offering these products and services to our customers and have a space for them to look at the materials we work with. We take pride in our work and in the satisfaction of our customers.” Linwood Stove & Fireplace has all the expertise not only to retail the best products on the market but also to offer installation, repairs and maintenance to their customers. Services include both new and repair work on steps, patios, walkways, stone walls, pillars, chimneys, fireplaces, veneers, etc—you name it and they can build it or fix it. Linwood also has more than 20 years experience in doing commercial restoration, which is an intricate side of the masonry business, on century-old, historic buildings in Boston and the surrounding areas under the name “Linwood Restoration.”
Linwood Stove & Fireplace offers a full retail line of grills, barbeques, and smokers to outfit your back yard or patio and features popular brand names such as Napoleon® Grills, Fire Magic®, Broil King® and Black OliveTM Pellet Grills. Stop by the store and have a chat with a salesman or design specialist to talk about which options may be the best fit for you and your home. The team at Linwood is committed to customer satisfaction and will take every step and measure to make sure you come away satisfied.
You don’t have to be an HGTV fan (like me!) or a specialist in the real estate market to know that outdoor living spaces are the latest trend in home improvement. Not only do they increase the homeowner’s enjoyment of their outdoor areas, outdoor living spaces add tremendous value to homes. From concept to completion, the team at Linwood is here to walk you through every step of the process—whether that means improving or repairing an existing space outside your home or office OR something more complex such as a complete outdoor renovation to create your dream back yard complete with an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and lounge. Options range from outdoor fire pits, backyard kitchens, pizza ovens, pergolas and more—whether your plans are large or small, the expert team at Linwood is here to assist.
And remember, outdoor spaces have year-round appeal—with the right outdoor-heating solutions (think fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, chimineas, and warming lights) you can utilize your new space all year long in ways you probably haven’t even imagined yet. Co-owner of Linwood Stove & Fireplace, Allison Stone commented enthusiastically, “There is nothing more impressive than visiting someone’s home and walking into the back yard and seeing a gorgeous space. It reminds me of a holiday party that was hosted in my neighborhood around Christmas this year. It was so inspiring. My friends had the most gorgeous outdoor set up, complete with fire pits, a full outdoor kitchen with granite countertops and gorgeous outdoor lighting. It was beautiful; the kids all loved it as much as the adults, and nobody was cold! It was great and it was so festive and creative!”
Achieving cost savings and improving the aesthetics of your residence all have great appeal to any homeowner. But one thing I think most of us can agree on is that life can be too busy sometimes and we’re constantly on the go. We value our quality time—our time with family and friends and our time at home—more now then we ever have. We also value every dollar. So adding value while maximizing the functionality of your home and the enjoyment you get out of it should be of the utmost importance. As they say, “Staying in is the new going out”…So get on board, give the store a call or stop by in person and begin transforming your backyard into a space where friends and family can come over for a weekend barbeque, holiday party, birthday celebration or just to relax on a warm summer evening to enjoy dinner, cocktails, and good company after a long day.
