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.
We Highly Recommend Kyle
Kyle is a true professional. My wife and I hired him to clear our property and sculpt our lawn. From the very beginning we were impressed with his attention to detail and the quality of work. His pricing was extremely fair and he really works with the customer to fit their budget and needs. Additionally, he is very easy to communicate with and takes pride in being easily accessible when you have questions. Overall we could not be happier with our experience in dealing with Kyle. We would highly recommend him to anyone who needs work done. September 2019.
Back Yard Drainage
I contracted Kyle to layout and install a new drainage plan for my backyard. He accepted the challenge, gave a reasonable estimate, scheduled a date, continually updated me as to the status of the date and how long it would take. He was spot on, including weather delays. Completed the job on time, and left my yard in very good condition. He even removed a bush for me that was not part of the contract. I would HIGHLY recommend Kyle and Barry as a reputable, reasonable contractor team and nice people.
It has been a very pleasant experience contracting with Kyle and his team. The work performed was completed in a very timely and professional manner. There was great attention to detail as well as some personal touches that made the project come out looking spectacular. I am thoroughly impressed and would recommend them in a heartbeat.
Gorgeous Front WalkDear Kyle, Just a huge thank you for installing our most beautiful front walk. We have received many compliments and we have been passing your name around like hors d’oeuvres at a party. I had gone up to Maine and my husband called and said, ‘it’s done!’. I said, ‘are you kidding?’ And he assured me he wasn’t. What a nice surprise to come back and view your gorgeous creation! Many thanks.
Professional. Designed and installed septic system. Completed work as agreed and on time. Highly recommended.
Deep Water Problem SolvedAndy and I so appreciate your expertise and assistance with our “deep” water problem. The promptness and dedication to the completion of the situation is what makes your great professional reputation so true. With gratitude,
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.
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.
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.
We Highly Recommend YouKyle, We would like to thank you for adding to the driveway. It looks great! It was so nice that you took care of all with no hassle. We highly recommend you.
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 best man for your driveway jobKyle 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!
Highly Recommended - Drainage Project
Kyle chose to take on a drainage project that many would not have done. He did what he said and did not need to be supervised. Once the job began Kyle focused on the job until it was complete. D Kyle Stearns contracting Inc. is highly recommended.
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.

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.
He is very efficient and somewhat of a perfectionist, very happy with the work done.
Kyle and his crew are greatKyle 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. Yelp Review
Very EfficientAs someone who has done some similar work in my past, I would definitely recommend Kyle Stearns. He was punctual and very efficient with the excavation work that I had him do. He has great precision with the large excavation machinery, and completed the footing drains ahead of schedule. Kyle seems to enjoy the work he does and it shows by the pride he has to get a job done right. The next time I need work of this nature done, I will be sure to call Kyle!
Attention to Every DetailKyle did a great job from start to finish. He found an underlying problem to our corroding driveway, fixed it. He paid attention to every detail as the project continued. I found him upfront and fair in pricing and on top of that he did a lot of little extra things that were not in our original plans and never charged for them. Would highly recommend Kyle.
