Outdoor Fireplaces

The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether it be summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another. It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.” -Henry David Thoreau

Only a poet can capture in words the experience one enjoys in front of a wood fire. KM Gardens can incorporate a fire feature into your outdoor living space. From simple fire pits to custom fireplaces.

“The most tangible of all visible mysteries-fire” -Leigh Hunt


We are excited to help make your outdoor living space exactly what you imagine. Whether it’s Pa bluestone flagstone or other natural stones we will help you create a customized, usable space that is both functional and aesthetically beautiful all year long . KM Gardens is there from the initial design through the completion of every detail. We’ll even help layout your patio furniture! Our patios are thoughtfully designed with the home’s surroundings in mind. If you need to create a new space or want to renovate an existing patio, KM Gardens will help make your outdoor living space a warm and inviting sanctuary 365 days a year.

Retaining Walls & Steps

Retaining walls are carefully engineered barriers used to restrain soil that would naturally slide into landscapes, driveways or foundations. At KM Gardens, we use natural stone to build a dry stacked stone wall, a masonry wall, or a very cost-effective boulder wall. We will incorporate a retaining wall into your current landscape design to provide a functional, seamless, and timeless foundation for your garden.


Whether you are creating a welcoming path to your front door, stepping stones around your beautiful garden, or a walkway to your pool, KM Gardens can help. We specialize in designing and installing unique walkways using a variety of different materials that fit any budget. If you want flagstone, brick, or pavers we can create just the right path for you.


Many older pools are in need of restoration. A pool that is aged could be missing tiles, have unsightly or loose coping or sunken concrete. If you’re in need of a complete restoration or just an updated area surrounding the pool, KM Gardens can transform your summer retreat to a vacation like oasis.

Outdoor Grills

Outdoor kitchens and living spaces have never been easier to create or more affordable. At KM Gardens we have years of experience incorporating built-in grills into our patios. Imagine a masonry grill surrounded with custom counter tops made of bluestone, granite, or other unique materials. Add a sink or refrigerator, some seating space for family and friends and you will find backyard entertaining easier than ever.


Nothing is as soothing as the sound of running water. We can transform a small area with a re-circulating fountain or a larger space with waterfalls and streams to make your outdoor living space into a lush oasis. Using beautiful natural stone and boulders, a pond will bring your garden to life, attracting a variety of birds, crickets, frogs and butterflies. You and your family will be able to leave your day-to-day stress behind by sitting in the garden, listening to the sound of lapping water and just breathing in nature as it gloriously surrounds you.

Landscape & Outdoor Lighting

Landscape lighting is an essential element to walkways, garden, patios and pool areas. Low voltage lighting can transform your daytime haven to a magical and enchanting evening paradise. We at Km Gardens can design a lighting package that extends your time outdoors naturally. Your family will relax well into the night as you comfortably enjoy natures beauty throughout each season.
