The Euro block is such a diverse and versatile building unit when it comes to outdoor living areas and patios. In most designs the block doesn’t even need to be cut, but if it does it makes for a quick and easy cut due to it being only 4" thick. Check out some of the pictures below for examples of what you can create using the Euro block!
What is Euro block you may ask? Euro block is a concrete modular block, each measuring 4”x8”x12” that is ‘tumbled’. This gives it an older, antiqued finish. When this finish is applied it gives the block the look of natural cut stone but with consistent heights making the construction process very easy. The Euro block can be used to build anything from seat walls, to fire pits, to columns, to even fireplaces! Ask to see the 4 Euro block colors at your local Exteriorscape dealer today.

In the last blog we talked about the various planning details that need to be considered when planning your outdoor kitchen. We talked about plumbing, water, gas, and electric. Despite these details your outdoor kitchen can be done very simple yet still have lots of function. Also, without those amenities it opens up your options for placement of your kitchen. The blocks that build the housing around the grill can be a combination of blocks, or just one type. They can be built around your grilling unit or be built to allow the grill to be placed on top of the blocks. Determine what you kind of grilling unit you want to feature, then plan and build around it!
