"Working with KP Design has been a pleasure. In 2016, we purchased one of Newport's oldest grand private estates, the 1854 Astor family mansion named "Oakwood", a property with over 5 acres of beautiful grounds. After working with crews to remove over 5 years of accumulated fallen leaves from the property's dozens of mature trees, we began working with Katie to restore the gardens to their former grandeur. Katie created detailed designs and managed the bid process. Katie also worked with outside suppliers of custom-fabricated trellis work, lead statues, zinc fountains, fencing, and other professionals. Once installed, Katie and her team have handled the fine gardening -- from our antique roses to over 50 dahlias. We've created dozens of planting beds, and installed thousands of bulbs. With Katie's design leadership, we're now adding a greenhouse, summerhouse, gazebo, fenced vegetable garden, pergola, berry patch, and more. Katie communicates professionally across the entire team working together on our property, and acts as our "go-to" person. In 2017, with Katie's leadership, Oakwood became the first private residential arboretum in New England to gain accreditation under the ArbNet Level I Aroboretum program, starting a trend to expand arboreta in Newport. In Katie we have a true partner who shares our love of beautiful gardens and the living environment that surrounds us. KP Design has been a key ingredient to our stewardship of this special Newport property. We recommend KP Design wholeheartedly!"

"It is with great pleasure I recommend Katie and her landscape design services. Katie is the green thumb that I am not! And more! I have worked with Katie for the past four years, relying on her expertise to assist with landscape and flower design services for my business and home. Not only does Katie produce beautiful work, regardless of price point or job size,  I have developed an implicit trust with her. She delivers superb customer service, a genuine passion for her work, and each referral I share with friends is always made with confidence. Thank you, Katie!"

"Katie P. Adams has worked for us for over 10 years, keeping & helping create our garden. She communicates well, is always on time & does the job quickly & carefully. The new plants/shrubs she buys for us are always top quality & do well. What is more, she enjoys gardening & is a good teacher when we try to analyze whether a particular plant is flourishing or not, what needs to be done to feed, prune, & nourish each plant.

During the winter, Katie & Chris keep the garden & walkways clear of snow. They are always a big help, & fun to be around.

Three cheers for Katie & her helpers at KP Design, LLC!"

"As a customer of KP Landscaping for more than five years, I've enjoyed working with these talented and environmentally responsible people. Their ideas are both creative and practical, and they're always open to working with mine, as well. Plus, if sub-contractors are needed, KP is right there, keeping an eye on the job. As a result, I love my garden, and everyone who sees it loves it, too. Thanks KP!"

"Our back yard has never looked better. You took a scruffy, unsightly area and turned it into a peaceful oasis that we greatly enjoy during the warmer months.   And best of all, it’s low maintenance. Our only regret is that we didn’t find you and your company earlier – it would have saved us a lot of frustration and expense!   "
