What Our Customers Say

  • I called Family Grade & Gravel to level my driveway and put down limestone. Mark the owner came out and assessed my badly beatin driveway, and was very knowledgeable on what was needed and what would last the longest. He even leveled my drive that day, but had to wait for the seasonal weight restrictions to be lifted to bring the stone. Mark was hands down one of the best people I have ever done business with. Very friendly, honest, and down to earth type of guy! His price was extremely fair, as I did get other estimates. My driveway looks amazing, perfect amount of stone and LEVEL! I could'nt of asked for a better experience from start to finish! I will highly reccomend FG&G, and look forward to working with them again.

    We had been dealing with an uneven driveway for years. One call to Family Grade & Gravel fixed the issue. I called for an estimate and the owner, Mark, returned my call quickly. At my home, Mark walked me through what he would do, why I was having the issues, and recommendations for future maintenance. His pricing was competitive and fair. He was very personable and friendly. I will definitely be using the service again in the future. A great family-owned small business!

  • Mark, his wife Lori, and their crew did a great job of removing overgrowth that had taken over our yard. The debris was removed, the ground was professionally graded, and seed was applied. Our views of the yard are beautiful now and I can't wait for the grass to come in. Thank you for your hard work! I give Family Grade an A+

  • Mark and Lori did such a nice job on restoring my long neglected drive. It now has clean lines and really gave my house a face lift improving curb appeal. They even added more by removing an old steel post and wrapping around my mailbox giving that extra touch! They were so great to work with and did such a good job that I highly recommend them. Really nice people and so easy to talk with. Thank you Mark and Lori!

  • Family Grade & Gravel does excellent rock driveway work. Mark completed my driveway a few months ago and just returned to do a little touch up work. I have dealt with a lot of contractors in my time, but none have come close to the friendly, honest, professional service that Mark delivers. The quality of his work is absolutely the best. He is always welcome at my home.

    Mark gave me a good price for my driveway work pre-season. He came back and graded my driveway just to make it easier for my daughter's bus weeks before I even got a scheduling date. My driveway looks spectacular! They go above and beyond.

  • Mark and Lori did an outstanding job repairing and upgrading our old washed out driveway. There will be no more getting stuck in our own driveway in the spring! Great communication, fair pricing, professional and friendly. We have already talked with Mark about grading plans for the rest of our property. Highly recommend and will definitely use them again in the future!

    I couldnโ€™t believe the great work that Lori and Mark did on our driveway! They are such kind and genuine people. We enjoyed talking with them and having them complete some other work besides our driveway. Itโ€™s nice to know there are people willing to go above and beyond in their work! Mark did a great job grading and making sure the leveling was perfect while Lori precisely shaped all of the edges of the driveway. In the great words of Lori, โ€œThe stone really makes your house pop.โ€ She is accurate with how nice the stone looks and how many compliments weโ€™ve gotten in a few short days! I wouldnโ€™t recommend anyone else !

  • My husband and I hired Mark and Lori to grade our very long gravel driveway and around our barn. Lori pulled some weeds around our barn - which we didnโ€™t ask to have done. Itโ€™s so refreshing to work with people that are professional, on time, caring, particular about their work, charge a reasonable price and are great people too. Thank you, thank you, Mark & Lori! We have more work for you! ๐Ÿ’œ

They did a fantastic job on my driveway, which was no small task!! They even helped out with a few other things around the yard. I will be using them in the future for some landscaping needs. I highly recommend them!!

  • Great gravel work. Graded a driveway that no one could do. Even came back out to fill a few holes after a recent rain. Thanks!

    Fantastic work done on a mess of a driveway. We have two driveways that were full of low spots that filled with water and the slope caused the garage to fill with water when it rained. Mark fixed it all!! Completely redid the slope and added gravel. The driveway has never looked so good! Great job, great company!!
