I have used K&B twice now, once in the spring of 2013 and again last month for 2 related hardscape projects: a capped CMU wall, and a paved walkway with a 2-step stoop. I came back to K&B because I felt the value proposition was as good as I could get in this area, the company is solid and full service, their people are a pleasure to work with, and the results were very good and fully met my expectations. This is an established company with a broad range of capabilities, at least 7 crews, 20+ year veteran employees, and a management that has the integrity to guarantee the quality of their work, even when it costs them money. They corrected the few minor problems that did come up without hesitation or additional expense. The value proposition really begins with Jennifer Craven, their designer. Though not a landscape architect, I actually found that her design suggestions more closely met our design objectives than those of the landscape architect I originally hired.
Our projects required only conventional techniques, so I am not qualified to comment on K&B's capabilities relative to any advanced construction technologies, nor can I comment upon their capabilities relative to large-scale cement work. However, I wholeheartedly recommend this company to any homeowner looking to invest in a landscaping upgrade.

Definitely a great experience
K&B is very professional and takes the time to explain what they can do to beautify your yard. Before choosing them, we had talked to a couple other landscaping companies with lower prices but I was never happy with the work or designs from these companies. K&B told us from the beginning that their prices were a bit higher than others but when we saw the design work and finished product from past jobs, it made sense to spend a little more for vastly superior quality since this was an additional investment on our home.
The onsite crew were very friendly. I was very pleasantly surprised when they finished our yard almost a month earlier than expected though it was likely due to a lack of rain during winter. Our walk through was very thorough and they touched up anything that didn't meet their high standards. Definitely a great experience as we really had no idea what we wanted to originally and they helped guide us based on what we liked.
