We enjoy working with our hands, working outdoors, and pouring our hearts into our projects. We strive for product excellence and customer satisfaction. We also think that quality is an integral part of outdoor living so we keep up with the newest innovations in our field. A great outdoor space can enrich the lives of you and your family and friends. Let us build your outdoor living space and give you the ability to take back your free time. Kick back with a cold drink, sit around a fire pit, watch the kids catch lightning bugs. Slow down, enjoy, and appreciate every moment. That’s what we believe in. That’s who we are.

We Are Designers

I’m Mark, our Design Manager, who will be the one to meet with you at your home to discuss your plans. I have over 20 years’ experience in sales and consulting, with 9 years in real estate as an Appraiser in Kansas City. My usual day is spent with prospective clients at their homes. I listen to your wants/needs take measurements, take pictures, create a 3D design, and work with you to enhance your outdoor space. In my free time I’m with my wife, our three active kids, and our two year old Boxer. I’m an avid sports fan and K-State Alumni who loves being outdoors.

Let me introduce myself. I am Thomas, a designer of outdoor environments for Kansas City Hardscapes. I have 15 years experience in the construction arts, including home repairs, renovation, and redesign. I pride myself on my ability to listen to customers, to hear their objectives, and to create the space that they envision. My service includes a thorough evaluation of outdoor areas…professional measurements and assessments of the terrain… and a 3-D presentation of the best possible solution to the client’s problems and artistic ideals. I am very dedicated to my work, but in my free time, I love everything outdoors…fishing, boating, jet skiing…you name it. I hope to share my enthusiasm for outdoor living with all my customers. Thank you for your confidence in me.

Hi! I’m a member of the design team at Kansas City Hardscapes. My experience in sales and home renovation, and my love for a good night around the fire have led me here. I get excited about every size and shape of outdoor projects because I’ve experienced how much they can transform a living space. Outside of work, I enjoy live music, golf, aged spirits, and spending time with my wife, daughter, and son.

Hey, I’m Jeff…I’m a Project Manager/Designer. I’ll be on-site every day on your project and in charge of making your dream space come to life! I’ve been involved in almost every aspect of Construction and Construction Sales, throughout the country, my entire life. I was born and raised in Western Kansas (no, not Topeka…much further!). My wife and I moved to Kansas City from Western Kansas in 2003. We have a daughter and 2 boys that are very, very, VERY active. I spend my evenings and weekends at the hockey rink, soccer field, basketball court, baseball diamond, or sitting on a bucket coaching my daughter’s softball team. I’m looking forward to meeting with you!

I love all the little details that go into these jobs that make the final picture look amazing. I like to spend my free time with family and friends. I have four kids that enjoy playing lots of sports.

We Are Management

Hey everyone, I’m Derek, the third owner of Kansas City Hardscapes in charge of Materials and Design. I grew up with the Lewis brothers, and Kit has been my best friend since we were little. My professional background is full of craftsmanship. I worked in commercial businesses for most of my career until I decided to move to residential. Working with my hands is my passion, and I enjoy using my skills to create things. You will usually see me on site working with our crews every day. In my free time I enjoy restoring old cars and hanging with my two labs, Onyx and Mocha.

Kit Lewis

Kit Lewis |

Hey there, my name is Kit and I’m our Production Manager. I’m a part-owner and project manager here at Kansas City Hardscapes. I also oversee operations with my right-hand man, Derek. I have been working with Derek in construction since we graduated from Blue Springs High School in 2003. I participated in votech/construction trades my junior year in high school and it became my passion. I fell in love with the skills and knew it was what I was meant to do. A typical day consists of me being on-site with our crews, speaking with clients about upcoming projects, and spending time on maintenance. I’m married to the love of my life, Jenna; we have three beautiful boys. If I’m not with my family, you can find me on a golf course or sitting around a fire pit. I look forward to meeting with you soon!
