Landscape Design Los Angeles Residents Love

Welcome to Kate Anne Design Build.  We are a turn-key Landscape Design + Build Company that takes you from your budget-managed design, through to a beautifully completed installation, with your peace of mind intact.

Let’s face it, the world of construction and design can be daunting and as home-owners we’ve all experienced, or at least heard of the crazy stories our friends have gone through doing renovations on their properties.  There hasn’t seemed to be someone on the homeowner’s side looking out for them, and helping them navigate the controlled chaos of construction.  Having had lots of experience as interior/exterior designers, contractors, owners representatives, and homeowners ourselves, we’ve seen and been through it all.  We wish we had someone on our side when we were going through it.

That’s what we’ve found to be our special ingredient that has helped us be so successful.  We’re the designer, the contractor and the homeowner’s representative all in one.  Our job is to create a beautiful landscape design, manage your budget, and help you mitigate the stress of the installation process so that you can focus on enjoying the fruits of your labor.

What we do

We’ve taken the vast complexity of landscape design, hardscape design, and the installation and distilled it into a simple process.  We take you from initial concepts, through a schematic design, planning, engineering and budgeting so that the project is thoroughly thought-out prior to placing the first shovel in the ground.  We like to give you the prediction and certainty on the project from the start.  Then we as the designers, provide the installation so that nothing is lost in translation and you are delivered the design you were promised.


What makes us awesome

Kate and Ryan have a combined 34 plus years of design and building experience in all environments from the interior to the exterior, with all types of projects from small yard remodels to large estate design. Our passion is designing and building beautiful outdoor environments.

Kate has over a decade of experience designing & project managing interior and exterior environments for a wide range of clients. Entering the field as an interior designer, Kate worked hand-in-hand with clients to establish their dream home designs. Having achieved invaluable practical experience and an impressive record in interior design, Kate brought this unique talent from the interior to the outside world. Kate decided to focus on the exterior living environment for her clients so that the interior ambience they invest so much in would be equally enhanced once they step out their doors. In 2012 Kate & Ryan combined their total 30 plus years of experience in design & construction.

Ryan has spent the better part of 23 years in the field of residential and commercial design, development and construction management, working on over 400 projects in 57 countries. Ryan has lived and worked in LA, Florida, New York, Cincinnati, Las Vegas, Seattle, Twin Cities, Moscow, Spain, Israel and a number of other locales on an extremely varied mix of design and development projects. Having worked with large and small design firms to execute both simple and involved designs, culminating in running a team of 30 planners himself, Ryan brought that knowledge into the field of Project Management. Having seen first-hand the pitfalls and errors that can befall a home-owner in developing their project, Ryan decided to devote his hard-won expertise toward the goal of alleviating the stress, overspend and re-do that so often is the fate of a homeowner venturing single-handedly into the realm of home renovation and exterior design. Ryan acts as the owner’s representative, ensuring it is done right the first time with the right contractors and matching a budget and schedule you want.
