There is no shortage of amazing and creative ideas with this innovative hardscape company, and there is equally no shortage of highly satisfied clients, either.

You could spend an appreciable amount of time researching the Internet to find a trusted and reliable hardscape company that caters to your lifestyle, tastes and budget, but we decided to save you some time in that regard and have done our due diligence for you.



Different than landscaping – but a great complement to those elements – hardscaping is an art form representing the inorganic aspect of the garden or yard. Think: walkways, pergolas, outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces and even water features. Hardscaping can include concrete, brick, tile, and cobblestone. These materials, when combined by skilled craftsmen using quality materials, can result in a magical dreamscape for your outdoor living space, especially when they invite the elements of fire, earth, water, and air, whether singularly or collectively introduced as part of the overall design.

When you consider installing your dream hardscape design, it is important to discuss with your contractor several elements, including the functionality of the space; your budget; any privacy issues you desire; and even the topography of your backyard. Further, it is important to determine the style of the space. Do you lean towards a more formal look or do you want it to appear natural and relaxed? Having a thorough dialogue with the right contractor, incorporating your wishes along with their experience and skills, can result in a successful hardscape project.

This is where the award-winning Kansas City Hardscapes company can lend an experienced and trusted voice and hand. An outstanding and proven leader in the hardscaping industry, this one-of-a-kind company has successfully partnered strong business acumen with a decided and committed “roll up our sleeves, wipe the sweat off our brows and get the job done” mentality. They love working outdoors, ensuring no detail is overlooked, which ultimately leads to what truly inspires them to do the job right: the look on a customer’s face when everything has been done exactly as expected…and then some. Kansas City Hardscapes not only specializes in stunning outdoor living designs, but they also specialize in giving customers the best experience at the best price with the highest quality of materials. The passion for what this talented team does is evidenced in each and every project, all delivered with the understanding of how a perfectly designed space can enrich one’s life.



Owned and operated by brothers Benjie and Kit Lewis, along with lifelong friend Derek Nadler, Kansas City Hardscapes specializes in a variety of outdoor living designs, including paver patios, fire pits, fireplaces, pergolas, outdoor kitchens, stone veneer, outdoor lighting and water features. This small but strong family business takes great pride in its work and confidently puts its name behind everything it does. Working with many satisfied customers throughout the metro area, Kansas City Hardscapes maintains a busy agenda, but with its solid business systems in place, clients are ensured an easy and seamless process.

“Our office staff is ready to answer the phone at any time during the business day,” emphasized Benjie Lewis. “We are readily available to schedule that initial design meeting, coming out to the customer’s home and gathering pertinent information to prepare a 3-D rending of the proposed project. We don’t just put a few sketches down on a piece of paper. We show the client exactly what the proposed project will look like in their space, so they can have a full and accurate idea of the final product and how it will work for them. Our clients love   having this greater understanding of the final project.”

In addition to Benjie and Kit, Kansas City Hardscapes employs four experienced crews, an office manager, a marketing specialist, and two full-time designers, all of whom provide the clients with individualized attention and unwavering enthusiasm for each project and providing the kind of service they believe their clients truly deserve.

“We approach each project as if we were doing it for our dad or other family member,” noted Lewis. “We don’t cut corners and always do the right thing for the client. We don’t like surprises and we know our clients don’t, either.”

Another reason to choose Kansas City Hardscapes is the unique warranty provided with each project.



“We are the only company in the city that offers a lifetime (non-transferable) warranty, and all of our materials have a lifetime warranty, as well as our craftsmanship. If something needs to be repaired or replaced, we will happily come back and take care of it. If we don’t stand by that promise, what are we doing?” expressed Lewis.

If you are ready to give your outdoor living area a fresh and new look, perhaps it is time to consider calling in the specialists at Kansas City Hardscapes. Hardscape work is what they do throughout the year, nothing else. They are the experts in hardscape design and installation.

“We love the small business aspect of our company, as it really gives us the opportunity to help homeowners, taking a previously unused or run-down space and turning it into a place with a ‘wow’ factor,” smiled Lewis.

Their clients agree, too.

“This company is a rare gem. They helped us transform our dysfunctional backyard into a space we will use for decades. The 3-D design process helped us visualize everything. The crews were awesome, and the end product (far) exceeded our expectations. If you’ve dreamed of doing something with your yard and thought you couldn’t afford it, you might be surprised by what this company can do,” noted a highly satisfied client in Lee’s Summit.
