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 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.
“As 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!”
Gorgeous Front Walk
Dear 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.June 14, 2017Mansfield CTMiracle 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.July 23, 2017Amazing WorkKyle, Thanks for your amazing work on 7 Beechwood Dr. Your skills, patience and tenacity are greatly appreciated! Gratefully, Michael and Janine Callahan – August 2017Excellent 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.LandscapingJune 12, 2017Has 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.March 2016West Hartford CTHighly Recommended

I 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.03/01/2016Property Co-chair, St. Paul’s Episcopal ChurchWindham Center CTThe best man for your driveway job
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!June 2016Mansfield CTKyle and his crew are great
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. Yelp ReviewJuly 2017Manchester CTAttention 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.July 14, 2013Outstandingly Professional

Extremely 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.August 2017West Hartford CTExcellent 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.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,Expert in Drainage
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. – 5 star google review – March 2019, Glastonbury CTOutstanding Work
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.June 23. 2017Ashford CTWe 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. Linda and Tom Blum, Oct 2017I 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.
