Design + Build =
peace of mind.

Welcome to Kate Anne Design Build. We are a turn-key Landscape Design + Build Company that takes you from your budget-managed design, through to a beautifully completed installation, with your peace of mind intact.

Let’s face it, the world of construction and design can be daunting, and as homeowners we’ve all experienced, or at least heard of the crazy stories our friends have gone through doing renovations on their properties. It’s rare to find someone on the homeowner’s side looking out for them and helping them navigate the controlled chaos of construction. With lots of experience as interior/exterior designers, contractors, owners' representatives, and homeowners ourselves, we’ve seen and been through it all. We wish we had someone on our side when we were going through our own home renovations. That’s what we’ve found to be our special ingredient that has helped us become so successful. We’re the designer, the contractor and the homeowner’s representative all in one. Our job is to create a beautiful landscape design, manage your budget, and help you mitigate the stress of the installation process so that you can focus on enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Kate Anne Gross

Kate has nearly two decades of experience designing and project managing interior and exterior environments for a wide range of clients. She started her career as an interior designer and worked hand-in-hand with clients to establish their dream home designs. After achieving invaluable practical experience and an impressive record in interior design, Kate brought her brilliant talent and sharp eye for design from the interior to the outside world. Kate decided to focus on the exterior living environment for her clients so that the interior ambience they invest so much in would be equally enhanced once they step outside their doors. In 2014 Kate and Ryan combined their 40 plus years of experience in design & construction. Thus became Kate Anne Designs.

Ryan Gross

For the past 25 years, Ryan has worked in residential and commercial design and development and construction management, working on over 400 projects in 57 countries. Ryan has lived and worked in California, Florida, New York, Cincinnati, Oklahoma, Las Vegas, Seattle, Twin Cities, Moscow, Spain, Israel and a number of other locales on an extremely varied mix of design and development projects.

After working with large and small design firms to execute both simple and involved designs, culminating in running a team of 30 planners, Ryan brought his invaluable knowledge into the field of Project Management.

Ryan saw firsthand the pitfalls and errors that can befall a homeowner in developing their project. He decided to devote his hard-earned expertise toward the goal of alleviating the stress, overspend and re-do that so often is the fate of a homeowner venturing single-handedly into the realm of home renovation and exterior design.

Ryan acts as the owner’s representative and ensures each project is efficiently completed with the right contractors, and works with each client’s budget and schedule. Ryan and Kate’s extensive interior design and landscape knowledge combined with their budget and construction management skills empowers each client with a complete peace of mind when it comes to their entire landscape and design renovation process.
