Kate Anne Designs featured in Scott’s Miracle-Gro’s webisodes.
Kate was a pleasure to work with. She has great vision and execution. We are so happy with how our yard turned out. She took a space that we could not use and made it a space our family and friends love to be in. Kate knew we were on a budget and constantly worked and altered plans in order to make our budget work, without loosing the vision of the space. She always responded to emails and phone calls and always had great tips regarding furniture and accessories for the space. We highly recommend Kate!
We had a barren mess for a backyard. Then we met Kate. Now we have a beautiful oasis. It was actually more involved than that, but Kate made it seem easy. She first produced a design that was almost perfect. Then she worked with us to make adjustments that incorporated ideas we imagined but were not able to express clearly. She’s like that, able to enumerate ideas capturing the essence of what you are imaging. She also knows plants and color. She took several trips to nurseries to show us what she had in mind. She very much included us in the decision-making process, but in the end we relied heavily on her judgement. We are glad we did. Finally, she stays in touch. We were in constant contact with her my email as she monitored our opinions and kept us fully informed about the process.Kate is creative, a good communicator, responsive, easy to work with and honest. She’s also very good at staying on budget. If that is what you are looking for in a designer, give her a call.
Almost everyone has that one part of the house that never gets used. For us, it was always the backyard. However, after years of avoiding the dead grass and concrete that made up our backyard, we finally decided to do something about it.Enter Ryan and Kate. We had a vague idea about what we wanted. Lights. Grass. A space that can be functional and aesthetically appealing. Ryan and Kate took it from there. They had a vision. They drew up plans. And it was all so much better than we could have dreamed up ourselves.More importantly, they made the entire process effortless, taking care of permits and third-party contractors, and any other obstacle that came our way. Ryan was constantly e-mailing, checking in, making sure we always knew where things were at and what was going on. Kate would regularly send us photos of plants and greenery she was considering, walking us through the differences when it all looked the same to us. Before we knew it, the work was done. Or so we thought. The two of them were so fastidious with details, they were unable to consider the job truly finished until they were satisfied that everything was…perfect. And it was. Ryan and Kate absolutely transformed our backyard. It was like one of those HGTV home makeover shows. Complete with a deck, pergola, lights, grass, flowers, and benches…the back of our house went from an area we warned our kids to stay away from, to an outdoor living space where we now spend a majority of our time. We couldn’t recommend Ryan and Kate strongly enough. They are visionaries. Professionals. OCD-like in their attention to details. And now that we’ve had time to enjoy the fruits of their labor, we’re strongly considering redoing the front yard. There’s no question as to who we’ll call.
I used Kate and Ryan to design and redo both my front and back yards. Kate is very professional and is very responsive and quick to get the work done. She was patient with me and understood exactly the look and feel of the yard that I was going for. When I had input, she took it and applied it to the redesign. The back yard was done with low maintenance and drought resistant plants and included some hardscape including a large gas fire pit and waterfall. The hardscape and gardening was done by Jesus Frausto and team. The were pleasant to work with, easy to communicate with, very professional and extremely attentive to every minor detail. Kate and Ryan supervised the work and managed every aspect of the redo. The back yard came out even better than I had hoped. I love my new zen garden and I would highly recommend Kate Anne Designs, Ryan and Jesus. You won’t be disappointed.
Best decision I ever made was calling Kate and Ryan. I have a huge back garden that needed some major work and inspiration to make it my sanctuary. In less than a month that is exactly what Kate did, her design was so inspiring to me that I couldn’t wait for the work to start. Everyone that Kate works with is super professional and truly cares about their craftsmanship, worth every penny. If you are still hesitating in such an investment, don’t wait, you will love it, as I am enjoying my beautifully landscaped retreat now.
Kate and Ryan spearheaded our total yard re-do this past July. We were on a strict budget and even stricter timeline and they delivered way, way more than we could have ever hoped. Our front and back yard hadn’t been touched in over 20 years and Kate came in with some amazing, creative ideas while included some of the original elements that we wanted to keep. They produced the plans quickly and were so flexible and patient with the revisions we suggested. While completely respecting our vision, they made suggestions and thought of things that we would have never considered on our own.As a person in my early 30s, it was awesome to work with a young designer who used tools like Houzz and Pinterest to help find ideas. While the team at Kate Anne Designs is young, they aren’t lacking in experience at all, and they are incredibly professional. And Kate was awesome when it came to the project management phase — keeping close tabs on the contractors and making sure they were following the plans and finishing on time. I know I am gushing, but seriously we couldn’t be happier with our yard and experience with Kate Anne Designs– worth absolutely every penny.
My wife and I fully committed to a low water landscape this past year, and we were so lucky to find Kate. It’s hard to come to decisions on such a large scale and this is where Kate and her team shines. Kate listens to what you have to say, and gets to know your likes and dislikes. She presents you with very thorough and visuallyProfessional blueprints to look over. Kate is more than willing to adjust your plans to your needs, until you are ready to get started.Her team is professional and very knowledgeable from materials to plant variations.The job took as long as they said it would and it was not a disruption to our family’s schedule at all.I would not recommend anyone else if you’re thinking of getting some landscaping done.
Kate is lovely and has a GREAT eye. She spent lots of time with me during our consultation an had really good ideas to improve my cement jungle backyard. I would definitely recommend her for a rad yard design.
Professional, reliable, honest, and gets the job done. Kate and her team are amazing. I interviewed several landscape contractors and designers before I hired Kate. Kate is a straight shooter and has an amazing eye for detail. She had a vision for my property and transformed my home into a entertainers paradise. I am definitely going to hire Kate and her team for my next project! Just let her do her thing and shell blow your mind on her vision!!!
Just finished a total back yard project with pool and landscaping. Kate handled the landscaping and she absolutely exceeded our expectations on all levels. Kate is extraordinarily competent and passionate about what she does. She worked closely with us in designing the overall look. Then, when it came time to putting those plans into motion, Kate and her crew were incredibly efficient and professional. She was in constant contact with us throughout the process and, maybe more important, patient with us as well when we’d call with various questions. The end result is that with Kate’s eye and ability we were able to build our own small oasis right outside our back door. It’s only been a couple of weeks but everyone who has stopped has said the same two things.. “it looks like a resort back here” and “Can I have Kate’s number?” I have to say it again, Kate is simply delightful and joy to work with. You are most likely reading this because you’re doing your due diligence before your own project. Thats smart. The next smart thing you should do is call Kate right away!
Kate is amazing! She is calm, talented, honest, friendly, communicative, and easy to work with. We did a total backyard redo. We had met with a bunch of designers, all of whom didn’t quite listen to what we wanted and instead tried to give us a plan that aligned with their style, not ours. Don’t get me wrong, Kate has style and is not afraid to speak up when she thinks something won’t work or won’t look good. But from moment one, she listened to what we wanted and then came up with a beautiful design that incorporated all of it. Even when we had to make some changes due to budgetary reasons, she rolled with it. The contractor and installers that did the work were professional beyond belief. Friendly, respectful, and skilled.And any time we had a question, Kate responded immediately via email, text, or phone. Another thing: she writes everything down. We’ve worked with people in the past who forget what was discussed or decisions that were made, and it gets frustrating when things keep not getting done. Not with Kate. It all gets written down, and it all gets done.We truly had a great experience with her and would hire her again in a heartbeat.
Impeccable taste, trustworthy, time efficient, and purely kind people. This was our first time completely re-doing our backyard and we wanted to make sure we found the best team for the project. We spoke to different landscapers and also came to Yelp to see who you all thought was the best.Immediately after meeting Ryan, we knew no one else came up to par! He’s truly a warm, talented and intelligent person. He really knows the ins and outs of creating the best bone structure for your landscape. He was very detailed in explaining the breakdown of our project. If we had any questions, Ryan always made himself available to us which resulted in no surprises! You can really trust that he will have your best interest at heart! Now the company is called Kate Anne Designs and for good reason – Kate is the ultimate plant guru. She knew which gorgeous plants would survive with less maintenance and which flowers would flourish with regards to our sun exposure.
Kate and Ryan are amazing! They created a fun and entertaining oasis for our family. Our space is huge and they used every inch with a purpose. We couldn’t be happier with the experience from start to finish. Customer experience is extremely important and they went up and beyond our expectations. I would recommend working with Kate and Ryan if you’re a homeowner!
Kate and Ryan are the best in the business. Such great creative choices, great communication and an all-around tremendous spirit that makes planning and execution so easy and so fun. And on top of all that they are just such decent, good people. This is the kind of company that takes the stress out of what can be a complicated process. They just make it easy for you.
I had such a great experience working with Kate and her team. I’m a new-ish homeowner and knew nothing about landscaping or plants. I told Kate what I wanted and she came up with a beautiful vision that fit in my budget. She walked me through the whole process, so I felt comfortable! We had two in person meetings before beginning the transformation and she routinely came by during the week and a half of installation to ensure things were running smoothly. She always responded to my messages promptly and answered any questions I had. I would definitely recommend hiring Kate!
Definitely a five star landscape team. Kate and her installers are reliable, reasonable and do and absolutely incredible job. My yard has been transformed!
