Paver and landscape wall designs have become the focal point of many commercial and residential properties. The Hardscape North America Project Awards are presented annually to projects that have taken the meaning of hardscape design and outdoor living to a new level. Entries from all over North America have been closely considered and judged on a series of categories which include: concrete paver, clay brick, segmental retaining walls, porcelain, natural stone, vintage installation, outdoor living features, and combination of hardscape products. Belgard and Mirage projects once again received multiple awards and a number of honorable mentions in this years competition. A total of 12 projects were honored. Belgard and Mirage once again reigned supreme in the porcelain paver category, sweeping all of the porcelain awards for the fifth consecutive year. Belgard thanks the talented contractors who have continued to represent Belgard in the winners showcase below
