Highly recommended

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. May 2020

Amazing Job

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. May 2020

A Pleasure

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…  I really cannot recommend him highly enough. It was such a pleasure working with him.  August 2020

Great Contractor

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. December 2020

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!

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.

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.

Drainage Expert

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.

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.


Tal - October, 2018

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.

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.

Attention to Every Detail


Kyle 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.
