Kathy and the KMS team

Chicago Landscape Design Specializing in Urban Residential Gardens & Custom Hardscapes

KMS Gardens and Design specializes in small space residential gardens, urban landscapes, patios, decks and seasonal planters for the Chicago metropolitan area. At KMS we are recognized for our outstanding service and attention to detail, unique and creative design solutions and sustainable, eco-friendly practices. We also value long-term client relationships and can provide services that extend beyond the initial design and installation process.

Our client centric philosophy

Our client philosophy is simple. We put our clients first and work to achieve their goals, visions, and lifestyle needs towards those measures. When you work with KMS Gardens and Design you can expect to be our number one priority.

A woman-owned business with committed employees

KMS Gardens and Design is a woman-owned business and maintains a staff of highly skilled employees, many of whom are also women. We believe that this has allowed us a special window into the needs and desires of our clients and a unique perspective on how they wish to interact with their outdoor environment.

For over 16 years, KMS has created distinct, inviting, sustainable and affordable landscapes that reflect our clients and their homes. We believe that curb appeal is as important as the entire property’s aesthetic and that beauty can encourage, inspire, and awe. For every project, client, and planting, we aspire for something truly special and eye-catching.
