About Hardscape Contractors
Hardscape contractors can do a lot to improve the aesthetic appeal of your home. It is not uncommon to see houses with beautiful landscaping, but no one ever stops to think about what the yard and patio are doing for the property. While the landscaping may add value to the home, it is important that it be well maintained to retain that value and maintain a comfortable atmosphere in the home. A good contractor will know the best ways to incorporate landscaping into the design of any home, whether you are planning on building a new house or just sprucing up the one you have. You can take care of your own lawn and gardens, or you can employ the services of a contractor to do it for you.
Patios are the most frequently used hardscape construction material, due to their low cost and versatility. Your patio will not only be a great place to entertain guests, but you will find that it serves as an extension of your home, giving it that familiar cozy feel. If you have a patio, it is important to keep it looking nice, not just because of appearance, but also so that your home is safe from intruders and the elements. For this reason, it is wise to hire a contractor to get the best landscape design possible for your patio, because not all hardscape construction materials work well on every patio, and not all companies use the same techniques. By hiring a professional, you will ensure that you receive the best possible design for your patio, because you will be working with professionals who know how to blend the different types of material into your patio design.
In addition to the design of the landscape system, there are many other important considerations when getting landscape design done for your home. One of the most important considerations for any home interior and exterior design is the water retention capability of the retaining walls and paving. Retaining walls are crucial for holding back water, and good contractors will be able to advise you on which ones would work best in your area. Retaining walls can come in different styles, sizes, and materials, and by consulting with a professional, you will be able to select one that best suits your needs.
Another major consideration for your hardscape contractors is the type of material they use for your patios. You may want to consider concrete pavers, natural stone, or flagstone; and these materials can vary greatly in price, depending on the quality of the materials, and the complexity of installation required. Most contractors recommend using stone or flagstone, because it is relatively easy to install, and it holds up well against many types of weather. Concrete pavers, while being extremely affordable, tend to not hold up as well against heavy weather. The installation can be quite lengthy, and not all patios would qualify as usable paths for children to walk on, so this should also be taken into consideration.
When selecting a contractor to build your new patio, walkway, or deck, consider the amount of work involved in each step. Are there several steps involved? Will the entire project require a permit? If it requires a permit, what are the fees? You may also have to pay for the labor of a builder who will be hired to accomplish each specific task.
Your selected hardscape contractors near Houston, TX can provide you with a beautiful patio, walkway, deck, or spa that will compliment your current landscaping and landscape design. If you want your new patio, walkway, or deck to completely mesh with your existing landscape, it is important to get it right from the beginning. When shopping around for contractors near Houston, TX, don't be afraid to ask for examples of their previous work and for references from previous jobs they have completed.
About West Sacramento
In 1844, John Schwartz, a Flemish traveler, was the first Euro-American to permanently settle in the area of West Sacramento, which at that time was part of Mexico. He built a shack on the west bank of the Sacramento River six miles (10 km) south of its connection with the American River. John, with the help of his brother George, founded a salmon fishery along the river. In addition to the fishery, they also found the soil to be fertile and began farming and raising livestock. The announcement of the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848 brought a multitude of miners to the region. This also coincided with the end of the Mexican–American War.
In 1846, a man named James McDowell bought 600 acres (240 ha) from John Schwartz. With his wife, Margaret, and their three daughters, McDowell settled in the area we know today as Broderick. The McDowell family experienced first-hand the violence that the gold rush era brought with it. In May 1849, James McDowell was shot and killed in a barroom argument that he had supposedly started. With the loss of the sole supporter of the McDowell family, Margaret needed to find a way to provide for her family.
In October 1849, Margaret hired a land surveyor to map out 160 acres (65 ha), which was then divided into forty one blocks. She sold individual lots within this platted area which she named the "Town of Washington". The first lot was sold to August W. Kaye for $500. During its first ten years, the rural Town of Washington went through a significant increase in business development and shipping activity. One of the first businesses to be established in the town was the California Steam Navigation Company, which was attracted to the area in 1859 by how close the Sacramento River is to it. Other businesses in early Washington included hotels, saloons, and restaurants catering to the needs of people passing through. Many of the travelers making the treacherous journey through the marshlands on their way to Sacramento were appreciative of the rest stop at the Town of Washington.
While Sacramento began to urbanize on the other side of the river, early West Sacramento found its hand at agricultural development. Salmon, sturgeon, catfish, eel, crayfish, and clams proved to be lucrative in this region as fisherman soon found. The river settlement was flourishing, stocking fish markets not only in Sacramento, but in San Francisco as well. In addition, the rich soil of the valley produced abundant crops of corn, melons, cucumbers, and sweet potatoes. The dairy industry also established roots in West Sacramento around this time.
One of the area's most well known dairy farmers was Mike Bryte. Bryte came to California in 1849 to try his hand at gold mining. He didn't make a fortune in gold, but was able to purchase a dairy farm with his findings. When the California Steam Navigation Company came to Washington, Bryte used the steamships to carry his dairy products to various markets within the region. Profits from this allowed Bryte to expand his holdings. Bryte was able to own several thousand acres of land in the area to farm on, as well as raise his many livestock on. Mike Bryte's influence in the community was marked by his election to the Yolo County Board of Supervisors and later as sheriff. During the 20th century, Mike Bryte's property was divided and became known as the community of Bryte.
In time, the region began to develop. The Town of Washington was renamed Broderick in honor of U. S. Senator David C. Broderick. After 1900, the three communities known as Bryte, Broderick, and West Sacramento were cumulatively known as "East Yolo".
From 1900 to 1920, the population of this area doubled from 1,398 to 2,638. The West Sacramento post office opened in 1915.
These communities officially incorporated as the City of West Sacramento in 1987.
In June 1963, the Port of Sacramento was opened to deep sea traffic with the completion of the Sacramento Deep Water Ship Channel. The project had been authorized by Congress in 1946 and construction commenced in 1949 on the west side of the river. It has since been renamed The Port of West Sacramento. The Port's main imports include cement and exports include rice.
