STOVE/FIREPLACE? - I'm assuming that it was custom made (stove/grill) I love it! All those oven doors are excellent as warmers as well as for cooking. Who made it and what company can I make inquires?

I don't sell those pots. They're hypertufa and relatively easy to make.

Looking at the other photos, this all appears to be a fairly sophisticated woodburning outdoor cooking setup.

Typical cleanouts, or ash doors, are usually about 8"x 8" and cast iron, like the little door above all the rest of the double doors.

It was built in the 1920s. Yes wood burning and those are clean outs.

These are hardy in the Northeast. They're Sempervirens.

Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Amazingly Low-Maintenance Picks for Outdoor Planters
Aloe, scilla, gasteria and haworthia are a few examples of succulents that thrive in the hot, bright summer sun. If you're looking to increase the beauty of your outdoor scape, consider planting flowering Autumn Joy — which not only is pretty in its own right but also attracts butterflies.

But in this photo, the concrete is left rough and rustic, giving a casual and well-worn appearance. As this material is practically indestructible, you'll have concrete containers around for years and years.
Becky Harris added this to A 1920s Grill Inspires a Patinated Patio
The patio is about 10 inches off the ground on this side. Hypertufa pots containing sempervirens, sedums and thyme sit atop a new Pennsylvania fieldstone wall. The patio is full-range bluestone in an ashlar pattern with a thermal finish. Cohan was also able to incorporate some bluestone flagstone found onsite; if you squint you can spot the pieces surrounding the grill.

4. Create a killer container garden. If you want to grow vegetables or one of the many other plants that require well-drained soil, planting them in containers along with potting mix will give them the drainage they need to thrive. Any containers will do the trick as long as they have ample drainage holes underneath, but ceramic, terra-cotta and stoneware urns are especially beautiful and can last for generations if protected from the hardest freezes.Fast-draining and attractive hypertufa pots like the ones shown here can be made by mixing Portland cement, sphagnum and perlite, and casting them into molds. Wooden planter boxes can be fashioned from lumber found at the hardware store.Shop outdoor pots and planters
