Our history…

Brinley’s Grading Service, Inc. was originally created in Louisville, Kentucky on April 4th, 1978 by Tom and Marian Brinley. The company was created to be a residential grading contractor, with the plan to expand into landscaping and later further expand into commercial grading and site work development.

The company started with one front end loader, a single axle road tractor with a tandem lowboy trailer, a service truck and one dump truck. The only employee was Tom Brinley, Sr. The company operated in the Louisville metropolitan area for approximately 2 1/2 years until December, 1981 when due to a sagging economy and the opportunity to relocate to Raleigh, N.C. to do the grading and landscaping for a national builder took Brinley’s Grading Service, Inc. to the Raleigh, N.C. area.

The move to Raleigh was indeed a good decision. Within 2 years Brinley’s had expanded to 8 pieces of grading equipment as well as 14 light and heavy duty trucks and 15 employees. Over the next six years continued growth allowed the company to expand its operations to include a satellite office in the Charlotte area as well.

Brinley’s has continued to grow and now offers complete residential grading and landscaping and complete commercial site development. Tom and Marian’s 2 sons are now actively involved in the management and operation of the company.

Robert is the Vice President of our residential division of the Company overseeing all residential operations and the youngest son Chad is Vice President of our commercial division, overseeing all commercial operations. Both sons look forward to continuing to serve the Triangle and surrounding areas with the excellent quality and service that has always been the company’s goal.

We encourage everyone to contact Brinley’s Grading Service, Inc. if you have any grading or landscaping needs no matter how large or small the project may be.

We do hope you will contact us and give us the opportunity to earn your trust and business.
