About Huntersville Hardscapes

Huntersville Hardscapes was founded in 2019 by Joel and Lia Smith. Our idea was to create a side hustle that could eventually allow Joel to leave an industry that kept him away from home for months at a time.   "Eventually" ended up being just a few months and a few projects later!

We treat every project as if for our own home.  Our attention to detail, devotion to perfection and outstanding customer service deliver unmatched results.  


We love beautifying our community and increasing property values by creating stunning and functional outdoor living spaces that fit your family's needs and personality!


With decades of experience, our team at Huntersville Hardscapes offers the knowledge and skills to bring your vision to life.
