"Kathy Simpson, the principal, did a fantastic job of helping us to beautifully realize a wish list of features that included: modern feel, significant water feature, hardy in shade, ultra low maintenance, great looking all four seasons, lit for evening viewing, incorporating a dog run area and with strategically placed "kitchen garden" planters on the stair landing. Her proposal was well thought out, detailed and helped us visualize the result. We enjoyed her entire staff; they are knowledgeable and professional and worked quickly to install all elements, which thrived. We highly recommend KMS Gardens and Design!"

"Kathy has helped me create a unique and lush garden around my home--she took time to understand what I liked and didn't like and then transformed my front and back yards into beautiful, eye-catching spaces. KMS provides excellent service and responds quickly if there is an issue with a plant/shrub or watering system. They do a wonderful job that is specifically suited to your property!!"
