I gave Rick Peterson a lot of projects at once and he took them all without hesitation. He graded the lawn outside my house which stopped the basement from flooding. Dug a 20 by 28 foot hole with drainage for a giant in ground trampoline. Graded a 12 by 100 foot path for a walkway. Dug out a 12 by 20 foot area for a sandpit and he also sourced the sand. Installed a new 500 foot gravel driveway to the back of my lot. Graded and prepared a pad for a 4000 square foot steel building. Finally he knocked down an old well house as a last minute request and hauled the debris away. Rick works very quick! He did all of this in about 8 business days. Definitely give Rick a call if you're serious about getting the job done right!!

I would like to say Thank You to this crew. They did an amazing job. We contacted them in the winter for reworking our driveway and it was well done. They made sure it was done correctly and efficiently. We were very pleased. So we contacted Shaun again to build a patio. The work was completed in one day and I can't wait to use it. Because of the layout of our yard they had to do extensive work just to get drainage correct. They took time to make sure the runoff would be correct. I definitely recommend this company for any landscaping project.

"Professional and Quick with Excellent Results, No Job Too Small or Too Big" We had drainage issues in our front yard, a stormwater catch basin that needed repaired and lowered a retaining wall that had fallen over, a front sidewalk that was cracked and uneven and overgrown bushes that needed removed. Peterson Grading was able to take care of all these issues quickly coming up with a plan and were ready to get started. Rick was very knowledgeable about what needed done and carefully explained everything before breaking ground. In just two day's time Rick and his team were able to remove and haul away the overgrown bushes, the remains of the broken retaining wall, the cracked and uneven sidewalk. They also fixed the catch basin, had a new wider sidewalk poured and regraded everything to help with drainage. It was a pleasure dealing with Rick who was professional throughout the project and was even able to work with us on a last- minute desired change to the plans. We would use Peterson Grading again and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

Highly recommend!!! Peterson Grading did an outstanding job with a challenging and large scale project. The care and concern that Rick and Shaun exhibited from the planning stages thru to the completion was extraordinary. They took ownership of the job and treated my property as if it was theirs. The project was always neat and organized and the knowledge and skill that they bring will make sure that it is done correctly. They are respectful, professional and honest. I will continue doing business with them. What started as a business deal has now turned into a friendship.

I have a horse farm and I had lots of problem areas in and around my barns and pastures where water would stand and accumulate. Machinery and horses would then cross these areas and turned everything into a sea of mud. What a nasty mess! The muddy tractors carried mud into the barns and muddy horses created health issues. I had put down some gravel but that did little to solve my problems. I had Rick Peterson look at the areas and he made several suggestions. He told me that it was not enough to just put out gravel. He talked to me about how we should contour and re-shape the land to carry the waters away, where to use drainage pipes and where to install gravel. I hired Peterson Grading. They were wonderful in using the land to make the waters run to the drainage areas and away from my barns and pastures. They put down gravel in certain areas to make sure it stayed dry. Now I am virtually mud-free. Both myself and my horses love it! To show you how much effort Peterson Grading puts into their product, after they had finished the job, after I paid them and after they had removed their equipment from the site, there was still one small area that was not working well. Even though the fault was not theirs, Peterson Grading brought their equipment and employees back and fixed the problem at no cost to me. Who else would have done that? No one! I will use Peterson Grading for all of my future work. You should, too.

We hired Peterson Grading to clear and grade our property and install a pad for the construction of our new home. The experience with them was fantastic from the first conversation through the end of the project. Both Rick and Shaun were extremely knowledgeable and helpful regarding the site-prep process for new construction, and their honesty and transparency regarding costs and conditions was refreshing to see. Not only was their work and skill impeccable, their ability to provide prompt on-site solutions to working with the unique sub-grade conditions at our property ultimately saved us thousands of dollars. They were 100% professional and were very respectful of our requests for the work being done at the property, while also providing great advice and suggestions of their own (since this experience was unfamiliar to us)! By the end of the project it was as if we were working with and conversing with family. Peterson Grading will be our first call for any future projects where their expertise is needed!

Peterson Grading did a wonderful job completing several grading and drainage projects for me. They were able to come out promptly and provide an accurate quote along with providing expert advice on how to best resolve some drainage and mud issues that I was having in my cow lot. They arrived first thing in the morning and were extremely well organized. They brought everything that they needed and had the rest delivered, as it was needed. Their crew worked hard and almost non-stop. They stayed until all of the projects were completed that evening. I am very pleased with the quality of the work and would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent job you did for us on our ditching project. We had contacted several contractors on fixing an erosion and flow problem our HOA had with a drainage area that ran through the development. The problem area was full of brush and also had three trees that were leaning into the drainage area contributing to the problem. After hearing from some of the contractors say it would take a week or more to complete the job we contacted Rick. We gave Rick the nod and very pleased with his work. Early and worked all day. Very pleased to work with someone that calls back, arrives when they say they will and very happy with the results. I will call Rick again if we need more work done in the future.

We had a great experience with Peterson Grading. From the original appointment, to the final day of the job completion. Your staff was on time, efficient, courteous, knowledgeable, and very professional! Rick never had any hidden fees and was always up front on everything! We are very pleased with everything you've done for us! Thank you for all your help and hope to do more work with you in the future.

I called Peterson Grading when I had an issue with my yard where it was uneven. This was causing water to pool in the lawn after raining and taking days to dry. Rick came out to my house two different times to talk about my problem. I was impressed that he took time out of this day to come out twice and talk to me. He made me feel that my problem was just as important to him as it was to me. Rick and his crew came out a week later and regraded my yard. There were professional and got the job done on time and budget. I was very happy with the outcome of the job.

I have had the pleasure of working with Peterson Grading L.L.C. for more than 13 years. Rick Peterson is both honest and dependable; when he agrees on a start date he will always make that date. On many occasions Rick Peterson has been able to salvage lots that others considered to be un-buildable. Our most recent need for his services occurred a couple of months ago when our General Contractor had refused 6 lots at our Arbor Glen Development. Arbor Glen is a small subdivision of 47 single family lots and losing 6 lots would have made a huge impact on the bottom line. Rick arrived for a site meeting and explained to all exactly what would have to be done to make the lots usable. On some lots elevations were lowered, others were raised, large rocks were removed from 2 of the lots, building pads were re-compacted and necessary retaining walls were installed. Rick stands behind his work and will come back if it is not right. In 13 years and too many jobs to recall, I have never had to call him back.

On behalf of the Water and Sewer Authority of Cabarrus County (WSACC) I would like to express our appreciation for the professionalism and safety awareness you and your staff exhibited in the removal and disposal of more than 25,000 cubic yards of ash from one of Rocky River Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant's (RRRWWTP) 30,000 cubic foot capacity holding ponds. The timely and efficient manner with which this project was conducted is a credit to your company' s professionalism. The timely manner in which the project was completed is another aspect that deserves mention. The project, estimated to take four weeks to complete from the time the purchase order was issued, was completed in less than three. The turnaround time was critical due to the fact that WSACC was unsure of the amount of time before RRRWWTP's second pond would be full. The follow-up grading and seeding was also done in a very timely manner.
