What our customers say about us

Here's what people are saying about .

"Chris did a wonderful job on his work. He graded our whole back yard to fix our drainage issues as well get our back yard ready for sod. I trusted him with what he recommend on how to grade the back yard and WOW did it pay off. About 2 hours after he left it poured and he really knows what he is doing. No more drainage issues! The water went exactly where he said it was going to go. I would recommend him to anyone that needs grading work done with no questions asked. The cost of the job was also very good. I could not complain with the cost at all."


Mr. Gaddy regrading a large portion of our backyard to channel water from one side of the lot to the other more effectively. We did this to correct problems we were having with some places in the yard that were constantly saturated, and also to eliminate erosion that was taking place around the edges of a sports court that was partially above grade.  After re-contouing the lot, he seeded and strawed the entire area.  The grass is coming in nicely.  What I liked most about working with Mr. Gaddy was his accessibility.  I was able to text him questions, comments, and photos at any time, and he would always respond promptly.  I never felt like I was bothering him or catching him at a bad time.  His quoted price seemed very good, so I didn't bother wasting time to get other bids.  He stuck to his quote and was flexible along the way regarding small modifications and additions that came up.  Anything we added on was appropriately priced.  One thing I really liked was that I knew Mr. Gaddy would actually be on site with his small crew doing the work.  That way, I was confident that nothing would be lost in translation between our discussions and the final implementation.  I would highly recommend Mr. Gaddy for this kind of work.


Mr Gaddy went over several different options for drainage to my very complex scope of work. He communicated very thoroughly, giving me a clear idea of the grading, using spray paint and flags to identify the exact areas to be worked on. He gave me the phone numbers for calling the utilities to identify areas of underground wires and or pipes, as well as the dumpster companies that would deliver the giant dumpster and haul it away with the tons of excavated dirt. Removed wooden fencing carefully to bring in his equipment. The grading was very exact, with Mr. Gaddy measuring within inches the downward slope of each area that was being prepared for the sidewalk and patio pavers. He was extremely professional and always punctual.

"We hired Gaddy's grading for regrading our backyard that had severe water accumulation issues. Chris Gaddy came and gave a quote that was very reasonable for the amount of work that was involved. He explained everything that needed to be done, and was not at all pushy about adding any "extras". Chris and his son did the work themselves, and were very professional and friendly. The wether turned very uncooperative in the middle of the job, resulting in a good bit of extra work for them. Amazingly, they did not ask for any additional money for having to do the extra work and the multiple trips. Our yard now has perfect drainage, and no accumulation issues. These are good people."  By: Dhole 5/ 2019
"Better than I could have ever expected! Chris and his guys did an amazing job. They went above and beyond to make sure I was happy and thoroughly explained what he was doing and why every step of the way. My crazy drainage issue with useless french drains has been solved. I only wish he did more contracting stuff. I was so at ease with the entire project. I Highly recommend." By: Romeo 10/2018
"Gaddy was easy to deal with. He knew what he was talking about when laying out the new drainage path. Part of his grading included removing a natural area and multiple stumps located in the natural area. All work was done timely and the yard looks great!

"I build above ground pools for a living, and have used Mr Gaddy for years to help with grading of pool sites, and he is always dependable, and does a great job for us. We have had many issues with drainage in customers yards, and he always helps the customers fix their problems, and I never hear complaints. I am also aware of many lot clearing jobs he has done for customers. I would highly recommend Chris Gaddy for any of your grading needs." By: McLean 12/2019
"Perfectly. They do great work." By: Howe 10/2017
"Can not say enough good things about Gaddy's Grading. Chris has been in the grading business for 30 years and it's quite evident. He came out for an initial review of the project and gave us a very competitive estimate. The reasonable quote combined with his thorough knowledge on grading made it an easy choice when choosing him to do the work. On the days leading up to the project we had several questions about a few things and we always received an immediate response from his office manager Lori. On the day of the project, Chris came out as planned and did a phenomenal job on the project and was done by lunch - very efficient! Unfortunately, the next day our rental dumpster was to be picked up with the debris from the project and the dumpster service was unable to lift the container away. I called Chris about it and he quickly responded and set a date and time to come BACK OUT to our home and help to get the dumpster on the truck - it would have been impossible without him. If you are in need of ANY sort of grading project, don't hesitate to contact Gaddy's Grading. They are responsive, efficient, and take care of their customers. Thanks to Chris and Lori for all of their help!" By: Stiller 4/2017
