“Very creative. They turned my nothing backyard into an enchanting space that is beautiful in every season. Friends who knew the old yard cannot believe the transformation.”

About NW Hardscapes

Matt and Maria.

At NW Hardscapes, we help turn your dreams of an outdoor living space into reality. Hardscapes are the backbone of a landscape design; arbors and trellises that support your plants, porches and decks that provide a place to rest while enjoying your natural spaces, and gates, railings and fences that provide privacy. As your plantings evolve through the seasons, your hardscape will be the bones that give your garden form and purpose. Our area of service includes Snohomish County, including Everett, Mukilteo, Edmonds, and Lake Stevens.

Our Philosophy

We love being outdoors—being connected with and experiencing nature. Our goal is to create outdoor living areas that are as integral to our clients’ homes as their indoor living areas. This creative process is exciting—transforming a client’s needs into solutions that are both practical and beautiful. We love designing and building all sorts of wood structures, from an entry gate arbor, to a front porch. We build the wooden hardscapes that connect your home to the outdoors.
