Expert Hardscape Design For Elegant Outdoor Living

The professionals at Koch & Associates create hardscape designs that blend our clients’ sense of style with quality craftsmanship and 35 years of landscaping experience.

We’re proud that our hardscape design expertise contributes to the trend toward upgraded outdoor spaces. While outdoor living has long been popular in temperate California, homeowners in our state are increasingly choosing hardscape solutions for their properties that are more elaborate and sophisticated.

They are discovering that a beautiful flagstone patio, well-equipped outdoor kitchen, or cozy pergola makes family gatherings or dinner parties more elegant and enjoyable. At the same time, upgraded hardscaping is affordable compared to other home renovations and improves property values just as much.


A hardscape design plan by Koch & Associates considers two major factors:

  • Your vision. Every project Koch & Associates undertakes begins with a detailed conversation about your vision for the space. In order to develop a hardscape design that functions well, year after year, we try to understand your lifestyle, personal habits, and sense of taste. We’ll ask questions such as; do you prefer a formal or more casual appearance? Do you entertain mostly at night or during the day?
  • The site. A Koch & Associates designer makes a detailed assessment of every project site before planning. Hardscape design takes into account the size and topography of the site in order to choose features that are appropriate and in proper scale, determine a budget, and set a work schedule.

Once you are absolutely satisfied with our plan, construction begins. Virtually every project encounters unforeseen problems after shovel meets soil, but a good hardscape design plan takes into account potential difficulties to minimize delays.


Koch & Associates typically implements a master-builder approach, in which we handle all phases of a project, with a single manager dealing with each client. However, we also collaborate with other contractors to make your landscaping dreams a reality.

We’re a longtime Bay Area contractor that designs and builds hardscapes for property owners in the communities of Campbell, Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Los Gatos, Menlo Park, Milpitas, Mountain View, Morgan Hill, Palo Alto, Redwood City, San Jose, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Saratoga.

We had a wonderful experience with Koch & Associates. We hired them to completely redo our backyard and now we have a beautiful Trex deck, a lovely fire pit with seating and a swimming pool with a substantial swim deck. We couldn’t be happier with the result.
I wholeheartedly recommend Koch & Associates to anyone looking for top-quality, conscientious landscape design and construction.
