very day in Contra Costa County, California, residents of the county’s 375,364 homes leave and go about their routines. If you’re looking for a way to make your home stand out from the hundreds of thousands of others, look around. Chances are, you have huge opportunities right in front of your eyes.

Whether you’re committed to conforming to your homeowner/property community requirements or own your land outright, start with a Contra Costa County paver contractor. They are experts in all things pavement, but that’s just the first mile-marker. Hit the road to find out why everyone is raving about Contra Costa paving.


We Californians already do our part for the environment with bringing reusable bags to the supermarket and mandatory recycling, but your Contra Costa County paver contractor can actually help you enhance your home’s outdoor appearance while going green at the same time.

It’s a funny-looking word called “xeriscaping,” but it’s a serious subject. In fact, it’s even part of the curriculum at nearby University of California’s “Master Gardner Program of Sonoma County.”

Outdoor tips that up your exterior’s attractiveness while being eco-conscious include:

  • Mulching
  • Drip irrigation
  • No-waste paved garden design

Your chosen paver/contractor can help you select drought-tolerant grasses, perennials, and annuals, as we never quite know how wet (or not) Mother Nature is going to decide California should be each year.


Remember that old joke, Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway? It’s been around for years, and focuses on the fact that our driveway isn’t really seeing all that much driving.

That doesn’t mean your driveway isn’t important as the major toll roads we ride to work and back every day. In fact, your driveway is the red carpet of your home, and with a few outdoor tips, you can actually enhance the beauty of your home starting with this small space.

First, did you know that there are actually different types of driveways?

We don’t just mean dark gravel or snowy white gravel.

We suggest you look into interlocking paver driveways, and you’ll find you’re not the first.

Paver driveways are also called “permeable pavement,” but no matter what you call it, you’ll get a space that doesn’t just look beautiful, but offers:

  • Easier, faster water runoff
  • Fewer pollutants
  • Lower phosphorus and nitrogen


California is huge, and even Contra Costa County itself isn’t too shabby (we’re 9th in size out of California’s 54 counties).

So it can seem like trying to find a needle in a haystack when you need the perfect paver contractor.
