Hardscape Design and Installation

Hardscape design and installation are fundamental elements of good landscaping. In the Bay Area, Koch & Associates have mastered the building of hardscapes that seamlessly integrate into nature.

Hardscapes – the stone, concrete, wood, metal or brick features of a landscape – are the framework around which a beautiful landscape is based. Since 1978, Koch & Associates has built stylish walkways, gazebos, walls, bridges, patios, steps, outdoor kitchens and decks for residential customers.

Our exceptional hardscape design and installation services can seamlessly integrate quality features into your outdoor space while respecting the natural beauty and style of your property. In addition to adding beauty to your landscape, well-planned hardscapes offer these benefits:

  • Accessibility. A beautiful landscape should be enjoyed. Pathways direct foot traffic, while benches, patios and decks and outdoor kitchens expand your living spaces and invite you and your guests to spend more time outdoors.
  • Erosion prevention. Residences built on hillsides or areas in which soil can shift require retaining walls for protection.
  • Shade. Covered patios, pergolas and trellises offer you and your family relief from the sun’s rays.
  • Defined spaces. Along with stopping erosion, sturdy walls also direct foot traffic and can be a decorative way to define separate outdoor spaces.
    Solutions to grading issues. Your uneven lot becomes more functional with strategically placed retaining walls, tiered patios and stone steps.
  • Higher property values. Well-designed hardscapes are popular among homebuyers, often producing a return on investment of more than 100 percent.

The team at Koch & Associates serves homeowners in the neighboring Bay Area 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.


Koch & Associates is a highly regarded landscape construction company with a “master-builder” approach. On every hardscape design and installation project we undertake, our full range of services is facilitated by a manager who serves as your point of contact.

It’s our way of simplifying often-complex projects for busy clients who want to improve outdoor areas surrounding their homes but don’t have the time to oversee every detail.

We cannot begin to tell you how great of a job these guys did. Very professional, did exactly what they said they would do, and they are very detailed oriented. 40 plus years of experience really showed while engaged with this company. A class act organization that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Do yourself a favor and choose this contractor. They may be a little pricey compared to other places but it is 100% worth it!
