A lifelong resident of Mansfield, Connecticut, a young Kyle Stearns learned how to run heavy equipment while growing up on a farm. Early on he found that working with his hands was his true calling. After graduating from a vocational technical high school he attended the University of Connecticut, Storrs, for landscape design. In 1996, he started his own company, KS Land Design, which offered lawn maintenance and progressed to landscape design, landscape installations, and drainage systems. Kyle then decided to continue his education and later received his sub-surface installer license. Since then his business, D. Kyle Stearns, Contracting Inc, has expanded to include complete site work, excavation and septic installation and repair. Kyle enjoys his business because it allows him to create an environment his customers can enjoy for years to come.
I am a fan of the DKS Team
I decided to do a new drainage solution after talking with DKS Contracting. Needed something fast, and they were quick to jump on this task and created a nice impression from initial discussions.
At project completion, my impression is: Kyle is unique. There are few contractors that have his demeanor. It’s great and rare! He gets how traumatic this kind of issue is. He’s professional about the task and consultation. He sizes up the problem, makes a plan, and then gets it done. The quick project result exceeded my expectations. They banged this thing OUT. All I had to do, literally, was move stuff out of the way…
I am invoice #653, and I am a real customer. I’m not related to, connected to, was just recommended to, the DKS team. After this work though, I am now a fan of the DKS team, and will definitely have them on the speed dial for the kinds of projects they cover.
Has the equipment to get the job done
I had a drainage issue at my house in West Hartford, CT. I had numerous contractors try to resolve this issue at my residence but none correcting the problem. I called Kyle after looking at his website. He seemed to have specialized equipment to get the job done without impacting my family and neighbors. Because of a tight working condition Kyle not only fixed the problem at hand but also got the job done quickly and under budget. My wife (who was nervous at first) told me that it was a good decision to go with Kyle. I would highly recommend Kyle for any drainage problems.
Kyle is a very thorough professional and expert in drainage. We had drainage issues at our home and he not only came to diagnose the problem and fix things, he followed up multiple times to make sure that our property was doing ok after significant rainfall. Who does that these days? That’s how you know that he cares about his customers and is willing to do whatever it takes to do the job right. Although we hope to not have any problems with mother nature in the future, Kyle would be the first person we call if we did.
Kyle Stearns is the best man for your driveway job. He is outstandingly professional, down to earth in his manner, punctual and efficient. He was completely honest in his estimate and there was absolutely no question in my mind that he’d do the job perfectly. He even went beyond what I expected when he got rid of 2 boulders that were excavated while creating a new parking area for my house. His work was completed in less than a day and he cleaned up beautifully! He takes pride in his work and comes highly recommended by this landlord and long time property owner in Mansfield!
Gorgeous WorkExtremely professional owner and crew. They were on time (despite me being located quite a distance away in West Hartford), did gorgeous work and finished ahead of schedule. They built a paved walkway, refinished our patio stairs and built a set of stairs into our adjoining brook. The work exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend them.
Kyle is well known in Mansfield for his outstanding work. He has just finished two jobs for us: clearing brush and seeding grass in an unruly corner of our property, and replacing a brick walkway to the house. Both he and his employee Tommy were reliably on time, professional and courteous. We now have a beautifully looking walkway and we hope for some rain for the new grass! I would strongly recommend Kyle Stearns.
Kyle and his crew are great!!! In early June, we contracted with Kyle to do a major do-over of our lawn and landscaping. He pulled out 50-year old trees and plants. He brought in new soil, planted 60+ trees, shrubs, and plants, seeded new and old lawns, and mulched all the gardens. What a transformation. It is now mid-July… the grass is green, the plants, shrubs and trees are healthy, and we’re thoroughly enjoying our new lawn and gardens. We know it will bring us pleasure for many years to come.
“We heartily recommend Kyle and his crew. Kyle is very knowledgeable, thorough, and, incidentally, a great guy to work with.”
5 Star Drainage Solution
Kyle came in and took care of a huge drainage issue in our backyard. He out in over 200′ of pipe in a couple days and completely fixed the problem. I would highly recommend his professional services to those looking to get the job done right the first time.
Amazing WorkKyle, Thanks for your amazing work on 7 Beechwood Dr. Your skills, patience and tenacity are greatly appreciated! Gratefully,
Timely, Helpful, Professional
Hi Kyle…wanted to let you know how pleased I was with everything you guys did for us….you guys did a great job, were timely, helpful and professional…a pleasure working with you….I also appreciated Barry’s efforts and let him know that when he finished up the last of the punch list.
Please do give me a cost proposal to power rake, spread topsoil and loam and plant grass in the disturbed areas as well as the rest of the back lawn….if you can knock it out in the next couple weeks that would be great….thanks!

Yelp Review
Excellent Local Business
Excellent Local Business. …The owner of this business, who is also responsible for doing the work, is hardworking, extremely talented, and meticulous to detail… Not only was this business prompt in service, but went above and beyond contract, and his pricing was fair, and in my opinion, conservative – especially due to the unique circumstances.
We could not be more impressed with Kyle’s work. In quick time, he installed a brand new septic system, priced at a cost below that quoted from other contractors. Ours was a complicated, large-scale project, made challenging by some very unkind weather at times. Kyle and his team did not miss a beat. He and his team possess everything you would want in a contractor: expertise, professionalism, diligence, open communication, and the very highest standard of care for the work they perform. The project was completed today. Kyle’s work has been outstanding. We thoroughly endorse the powerful testimonials on the company’s webpage and we could not be more satisfied. Hire him for your contracting needs.
Excellent JobI want to thank you for the excellent job you and your crew did for us on the walkway at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Windham Center. You were a pleasure to work with and your suggestions and guidance were very helpful. The new walkway improved accessibility to our church and is greatly appreciated to all of us. I would highly recommend you to anyone and look forward to working with you in the future.
He is very efficient and somewhat of a perfectionist, very happy with the work done.
Expert in DrainageI needed someone that is an expert in water flow and drainage. Part of my driveway has a steep hill and all the water runs off the hillside and washes out my driveway every year. I showed Kyle and he knew what to do and how to keep this from washing out every year. Kyle does nice work and leaves your landscaping looking better than it did before he started the job.
We recently contacted D. Kyle Stearns Contracting regarding a drainage problem on our property. Kyle Stearns arrived and quickly and efficiently resolved our problem. The cost was minimal and well within reason. We highly recommend D. Kyle Stearns Contracting to anyone looking for complete landscaping and excavation or septic system repairs or installation. Thanks Kyle for fixing our problem in such a timely manner!

Excellent Work!I just want to let know how happy we are with work that you have recently completed for us. You and your crew did excellent work! It was done on time and reasonably priced as well. Nancy and I really appreciate your suggestions and advice as we completed the stone wall and landscaping around our new pool. It looks beautiful. I’ll send you pictures when the finishing touches are done. Thanks again.
