No matter what the size or scope of the project, KP Design strives to provide exceptional customer service throughout the design and installation process.



Bellevue Estate

With over five acres of massive trees and amazing historic grounds, this antebellum mansion has been undergoing a garden renaissance since 2016.  Working with the existing bones of a formal, axial layout, KP Design created planting designs for a new antique rose border, shade garden, children’s garden, and large cutting garden, all of which KP Design also maintains.  Up next: more flower beds and a dedicated vegetable garden.


Colonial Cottage

In small Newport homes with small yards, it’s essential to make every bit of space count. In 2017, KP Design created a simple patio design that became an outdoor room, an extension of the living space, for the historic cottage. 


Beach House

The homeowners wanted a low-maintenance, turf-free pool yard that evoked the serene, relaxed feeling of a day at the beach.  KP Design designed and installed the new pool yard plantings in 2016. 


Terrace Garden

The original yard was dwarfed by a large deck and bounded by an unsightly concrete wall.  KP Design was hired in 2016 to design a new outdoor space, featuring a dining area with pergola, an outdoor shower, a built-in gas fire pit, and tons of low-maintenance privacy plantings.
