What Our Clients Say

We used Gradex Company for the planning and installation of our retaining wall. We are convinced they are the go to company for this type of work! The quality and craftsmanship is without question, they met their timeline in spite of a very rainy season, and their after job restoration was impressive. Without a doubt we will call them again for future jobs.

-M. S.

Bob was extremely easy to work with and essentially made our drawings come to life. He was up front with pricing, clear about construction time frame, and delivered exactly what was agreed upon. He was by far one of the most outstanding parts of our home construction. We would use him again without hesitation

Travis A.

We’ve had 4 projects with Gradex over the last 15 years, and we’re getting ready to begin a fifth. Bob and his crew are professional, courteous, and do beautiful work! We never hesitate to recommend Gradex Company.

Kansas City Outdoor Living Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to the main questions around transforming your outdoor space into your new favorite place to relax and unwind.

A hardscaping expert is someone who specializes in creating and installing non-living, durable elements in outdoor spaces. They work with materials like concrete, stone, brick, wood, or metal to build structures and features.

These professionals not only construct and install these elements, but also offer advice on choosing materials, designing the layout, and maintaining the installed features to ensure they last long and function well.

Installing a pond for koi or goldfish is a feasible way to enhance your outdoor area. While you’ll have to perform some small maintenance tasks every week, a professional contractor can be hired for more thorough cleanings a few times each year.

A pondless waterfall is a safe, affordable, and versatile addition to any home. It’s a great choice if you have kids or pets, as it requires less upkeep and costs less than traditional ponds. It’s also perfect for small spaces, with the option to add a pond later if you want.

Fountainscapes come in a variety of styles, including small tabletop fountains, container water gardens, standalone fountains, bubbling urns, spitters, and fountains with hidden reservoirs.

A natural swimming pond is a pool alternative that uses natural filtration and biological processes to keep the water clean and clear. It consists of a swimming area alongside a regeneration zone filled with aquatic plants and beneficial microorganisms that purify the water.

  • Identify and address the source of the water causing erosion at the highest point of your property.
  • Slow down water flow and distribute it evenly to reduce its erosive force.
  • Regularly inspect and repair gutters and downspouts for blockages or incorrect sloping.
  • Plant vegetation to absorb water and prevent runoff.
  • Ensure soil slopes away from your home’s foundation.
  • Use rain gardens to encourage water to soak into the ground.
  • Always avoid directing water to hard surfaces, a neighbor’s property, or a single spot.

Natural swimming ponds are different from traditional pools because they use natural methods to keep the water clean instead of chemicals. This provides a chemical-free swimming experience and is a greener alternative to standard pools.

Retaining walls can be built from several materials, with natural stone, concrete blocks, and poured concrete being top choices due to their unique aesthetic appeal. Other good options include brick, wood, boulder, and gabion. Stone veneer can also be used to enhance the look of most types of retaining walls.
