Excalibur Land Services specializes in gravel road construction, ensuring exceptional finished projects through a comprehensive approach. Our team goes above and beyond to deliver outstanding results by paying meticulous attention to every detail of the construction process. From the initial assessment of the road's purpose to the selection of appropriate machinery, we ensure that the project is tailored to meet the specific needs and requirements. Thoroughly compacting and grading the soil, forming a solid and stable base, focusing on proper drainage, and treating the surface with strengthening solutions are integral parts of our construction process. With years of experience and expertise, we prioritize quality, durability, and long-term performance in every gravel road we construct, ensuring that our clients receive a reliable and superior finished project.
Safety: Throughout the entire process, Excalibur Land Services will prioritize safety and efficiency, ensuring that the stump removal project is carried out smoothly and exceeds your expectations.
Planning and Design: The first step is to assess the road's purpose and requirements, considering factors such as traffic volume, terrain, drainage needs, and environmental considerations. A detailed design plan is created, including road alignment, cross-section, and drainage features.
Clearing and Earthwork: The road construction area is cleared of any vegetation, rocks, and debris. Excavation may be required to adjust the terrain or create a desired road profile. Cut and fill operations are performed to establish the road's subgrade.
Subgrade Preparation: The subgrade is the foundation of the road. It involves preparing the soil by removing organic materials, compacting the subsoil, and ensuring proper drainage to prevent water accumulation.
Base Course Construction: A base course is typically constructed on top of the subgrade to provide stability and support. This may involve adding layers of crushed stone or gravel of varying sizes, compacting each layer to achieve the desired thickness and density.
Surface Preparation: Once the base course is in place, the surface is prepared for the final gravel layer. This may involve grading, shaping, and compacting the base to achieve the desired road profile.
Gravel Placement: The final layer consists of the gravel surface. Gravel is spread evenly across the road and compacted using rollers or other compacting equipment to achieve the desired density and smoothness.
Drainage Installation: Proper drainage is crucial for a gravel road's longevity. Drainage features such as ditches, culverts, and cross-drains are constructed or improved to channel water away from the road and prevent erosion or waterlogging.
Project completion: We want to make sure that you are 100% satisfied in our work. Before we leave a job site we will make sure that all of your questions are answered and you are completely comfortable with the work that was performed.
The biggest complement we can get from one of our clients is a good review and a referral. We genuinely care about everyone we do business with and take the time to make sure each customer feels like they are getting the highest quality service at a fair price.
We would like to thank all of our customers who have taken a little time out of their busy day to leave a comment about their experience with Excalibur.
Excalibur's Bryan Warman and crew planned and constructed a new outdoor entry area and side yard walkway at our Queen Anne home, including concrete debris removal, regrading, adding a retaining wall and crushed stone base, and bringing in expert cement masons to pour a new entry and sidewalk -- all while protecting an extensive irrigation and electrical lighting system. Completed project is attractive, safer and much more functional.
Was great working with Excalibur. Their crew was awesome, always asking if they were doing the job to my satisfaction. They came out and cleaned up 10 acres of overgrown property that you could barely walk through. Their mulching machinery is very impressive and highly effective. I plan to have them do more work for me in the future.
Great communication from the get go, great price for shed pad and very professional with the end result being spectacular! The shed installers commented on pad construction and attached photo shows end result. Services: Concrete masonry, Yard grading, Grading & resloping
Overgrown field mowing. On time, on price. Very easy to work with. Will do business again.
Bryan and his crew were very professional and courteous. They arrived on time, did the grading required and did an excellent job of cleanup when they were done. We were very pleased with the job.
Bryan and his whole team was very helpful, fast and did a tremendous job. I think the driver went a little over our allotted 4 hours but don't tell the boss. I would highly recommend reaching out to Excalibur for any land clearing needs. Great Job!!!
Excellent customer service and quality of work. Professional. Fair pricing. Highly recommended.

The thickness of the gravel layer depends on various factors such as traffic volume, soil conditions, and desired road strength. Generally, a thickness of 8 to 12 inches is common for gravel road construction.
Crushed stone or angular gravel with good interlocking properties is recommended for road construction. Materials such as crushed limestone, granite, or gravel with angular edges are commonly used.
Proper road drainage is crucial for preventing water accumulation and preserving the road's integrity. Adequate slope and the installation of ditches, culverts, or cross-drains help redirect water away from the road surface, preventing erosion and prolonging its lifespan.
To minimize washboarding, it's important to ensure the gravel is properly compacted during construction. Regular grading and maintenance also help to smooth out any unevenness and prevent the formation of washboard patterns.
Yes, gravel road construction should adhere to environmental regulations. Proper erosion control measures, such as sedimentation ponds and silt fences, should be implemented to prevent sediment runoff into nearby water bodies.
With proper construction and regular maintenance, a gravel road can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years or more. Factors like traffic volume, climate, and maintenance practices can influence the road's lifespan.
