Our only mission is to ensure the greatest success of our clients;
when you succeed, we succeed.

In the spring of 2021, Thomas Burkhardt discovered his true Maverick purpose and vision. With more than 34 years of hardscape construction experience, 30 years leading a multi-crew team, and millions in revenue generation, Burkhardt started his new venture unconventionally, with contracts in hand before a name had even been selected. 

Within a few short weeks, Burkhardt decided upon the name Maverick Hardscapes to reflect the uncommon path taken to its origination.

Today Maverick Hardscapes has grown to more than 10 crews, 9 internal team members and key partnerships with highly respected softscape companies. Together, Maverick and their partners are honored to deliver an unparalleled level of quality and service to every client.
