Elevating the outdoor experience for greater Kansas City since 2008

Our Story

Bob Kerr started working in the outdoor space in 2000. What started as basic concrete work and septic systems transformed into an outdoor living lifestyle.

Along the way, he discovered a passion for rock. He realized how creative you can be with it, and loved the idea of working with a medium that stands the test of time.

It’s out of this passion, in 2008, that Gradex was born.

Bob’s core expertise lies in rock and retaining walls, but he’s always had a special love for water. That’s why over the years he has incorporated ponds and water features into his services. Now he designs and builds high-end outdoor living spaces for homeowners and businesses across the greater Kansas City area.

“Outside of Gradex… we get outside”

When we aren’t working, we have one goal: to get outside and live the outdoor lifestyle.

We go out in nature and refresh. We become inspired and learn new ideas. We go to the river to float and fish. We camp, hike, and travel to new places.

Anywhere in the outdoors… we are there.

We truly believe that living this way helps us to bring the amazing experience that we do to our clients. We don’t just talk the talk, but we walk the walk. And just as deeply as we walk in the lifestyle, the love we have for it helps us put miles of passion into every stone that we place.
