About Us

K & K Gardens is an innovative retail garden nursery nestled on the edge of the prairie in Northeast Iowa. Now in their twelveth year, K & K Gardens continues to offer a superior small town retail garden center, while providing exquisite viewing gardens.

Located in the rural community of Hawkeye, Iowa, in Fayette County, K & K Gardens blooms each spring with nearly one acre of lush fragrant perennial gardens brilliantly feed off the rich “Hawkeye” soil.

This small gardening hobby, started by Keith & Kelli Kovarik in 1996, has blossomed into a bountiful display of wandering perennial and water gardens, uniquely designed to showcase thousands of perennials, annuals, ornamental trees and shrubs, and handcrafted garden art, while surrounded by a tranquil waterfall, and trickling stream.

Keith & Kelli invite you to take a stroll through their meandering gardens. Relax by the pond’s edge and be entranced by the splashing waterfall, inquisitive Koi and pet tree-frogs.

Your visit wouldn't be complete, without relaxing in the Piazza gardens; the newest addition to K & K Gardens.

When planning your visit, please be respectful of the posted hours, or contact Keith & Kelli to make special arrangements.

Bus tours, clubs, socials, workshops, and special requests are permitted, but prior approval is appreciated.
