In the year 2004, Cascade, Iowa, was a growing community with many upcoming construction and improvement projects in the farm, industry, and municipal sectors. Already home to many contractors and construction companies, the area still lacked a local business that could provide grading, excavating and dirt work, with the site prep and finishing these projects would require.
Seeing this as an opportunity to take the next step in his career, Terry Gravel decided to begin his own business. With already a decade of experience in this field, Terry knew that he had the proper combination of education, understanding, and drive to begin a family-owned, customer-oriented company. In 2004, Gravel Grading and Excavating was founded.
Over a decade later, Gravel Grading and Excavating still operates on its founding tenants of offering high-quality, customer-oriented service to farmers, contractors, and residents of Cascade, Iowa, and the surrounding communities.
With a wide array of services and specialties such as
- GPS locating, ag tile installation, and erosion-control measures for farmers;
