Hardscape Ottawa was founded on principles of building timeless outdoor living spaces.  In recent years landscaping has shifted from an afterthought of the home into an extension of the living and dining areas matching and complimenting the style and architecture of the edifice.   We are proud to be at the forefront of this movement in Ottawa, as well as pioneering innovative construction and engineering techniques to ensure longevity of our creations.  We are a Techo-Pro Certified company.  We build elevated outdoor living spaces to last.  Every photograph of every interlock paver landscape and special feature on this website is an installation actually built by Hardscape Ottawa.  Our design and build process is streamlined to make creating your dream outdoor living space as simple and painless as possible with the best possible end product.  Each brick, light, fire and water feature we install has been specifically chosen through years of research to be the absolute best value and longest lasting products on the market.
