2023 HNA Awards Winners

The annual Hardscape North America (HNA) Awards Ceremony celebrated contractors, producers and designers for top honors October 19 at the Kentucky Exposition Center. Recipients were recognized for remarkable residential and commercial hardscape projects that showcased an array of hardscaping designs including walkways, patios, pool decks, outdoor living spaces, commercial plazas, streets and more.

This year’s program hit record-breaking numbers with 219 submissions across 18 hardscape categories, including concrete paver, clay brick, segmental retaining walls, porcelain, natural stone, vintage installation, outdoor living features and a combination of hardscape products.

“It’s been incredible to see the continued growth of the HNA Awards program,” said Bob Thomas, CMHA President and CEO. “The volume of projects that come through this program is a testament to the level of innovation and advancement in products, designs, and installations that derive from this industry. I continue to be impressed by the submissions each year and am already looking forward to what comes in 2024!”

The HNA Awards are produced by the Concrete Masonry & Hardscapes Association (CMHA) and endorsed by the Brick Industry Association (BIA) and Natural Stone Institute (NSI). The 2023 awards program was sponsored by iQ Power Tools, Keystone Hardscapes, and Regions | Enerbank USA.
