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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Fantastic Drainage Job
After talking with at least 5 other companies with very high estimates or not even following up, I found Kyle. He was quick to respond, came out and gave an estimate that far beat others and his time frame was very quick. He was excellent to work with. He had his crew were professional, did a fantastic job, very thorough, completed the work in a few days with 250 feet of pipe, removed a lot of ledge, put in pavers outside our basement walkout and out in some stone under the deck to help with the other run off. I really cannot recommend him highly enough. I will absolutely use him hand down again if we ever need work done in other areas of our property. It was such a pleasure working with him.
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.
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,
Miracle worker!!!Miracle worker!!! Kyle and his company were able to design and put in a phenomenal septic system for a four bedroom home on relatively flat land in just a few days. He worked with us (owner) and the town to do all the homework and testing before drawing up plans to address the issue. He was able to design and install a system for a home that originally had an improperly installed system and do it in a very short period of time. Amazing work and so glad we had Kyle to do the job. I recommend him, without any hesitation, for any excavation or septic system work.
Great Contractor to Work With
Great contractor to work with. I own several rental properties and had a drainage problem at an early 1900s 4-family. Kyle designed a custom system to manage the water and properly redirect it. Fair quote, everything on time and as promised, obviously high integrity and cares about getting the job done right and with the right outcome.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing Job (drainage)
I hired Kyle to fix an extremely challenging drainage issue I had with water coming down my driveway and into my garage. He responded quickly, gave a fair estimate and stuck to it. He and his crew were always on time, extremely professional and did an amazing job. Kyle went out of his way to come back after it rained to ensure the drainage was working properly. I could not be more pleased with the results and would very highly recommend Kyle for any drainage issue.
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.

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.
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.
