Our Story

After graduating from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, in 1963, Coastal Carolina Hardscapes’ founder, Truman Kemp, was commissioned as an officer in the United States Air Force.  In 1966, Truman was assigned as Commander of Headquarters Squadron, 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing, Bien Hoa Air Base in South Vietnam.  His job was to not only keep and maintain discipline, but provide morale, welfare, and recreation among the 700 men supporting the flying mission on the base.  Housing was provided for 10 men to a long wooden “hut.”  One of the first things he did was to introduce a design for a “rest area” on the back end of each building providing space for a patio, cooking grill.  Firepit, and pergola with seating.  The idea was to give the men a place to unwind from the long hard day of work for cooking out, relaxing and fellowshipping.  The idea took hold and soon these outdoor living areas sprung up all over the cantonment area. Morale was high among the men and Truman actually received an award from the Air Force for this innovative backyard idea!

After retiring from the Air Force and a career in sales and marketing, Truman was introduced by a friend to the concept of pavers and stone installed to provide a patio for outdoor living.  He was fascinated with the possibilities and in 2005, along with his wife Mary Loise, Truman formed Coastal Carolina Hardscapes, a design and install outdoor living company.  Truman quickly joined the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) and became an ICPI Certified Installer to stay up to date on the fast changing innovative ideas and quality of installation plans and specifications to insure a well designed and long lasting backyard living environment.  In 2015, our company introduced installation of artificial turf to our design plans to create a  truly “maintenance free backyard” to the homeowner.  Now they can enjoy the weekend relaxing, cooking out, and gathering with friends and neighbors instead of spending hours cutting, trimming, raking, weeding and water their grass in their yards,

It’s been 16 years now since we started this business and we are more excited and energetic serving in this industry than we have ever been.  What a blessing to love the work God has given us to do. Outdoor Living Environments are among the top five home improvement areas in the remodeling and construction industry and we thank God for allowing us to help homeowners enjoy a well designed outdoor living environment.
