Our teams at Gress’ have been expertly trained with horticulture and landscape architecture degrees from North Carolina State University and have many years experience in the field before and after college. With this knowledge Gress’ Inc. is able to design the best possible outdoor living experience for our customers and contractors.

As installers with design experience our expertise insures that every project is both aesthetically pleasing and practically functional. Gress’ Inc. has the ability to interact with our customers so that we have a full understanding of what each customer wants.

We take pride in being able to install everything that has been designed for the current home such as custom concrete swimming pools, hardscapes, patios, walkways, irrigation, lighting, and the landscapes themselves.

We would be pleased and honored to utilize our services to your home or business and pledge the utmost satisfaction with our knowledge of the industry.

  • "Michael is a very knowledgeable pool builder and a real craftsman. Tony worked with us over several iterations to create an exciting pool design that blended a geometric and freeform style. The final product turned out even better than we ever imagined. We love the rock work, which Michael and his team did a lot of work with to make sure was just right. Michael was responsive throughout the process with any questions or concerns we had with the build. His whole team was courteous and professional."
