Landscape design & build for Huntington Beach
Yardzen designs everywhere in the U.S. and the Huntington Beach area is one of our favorites. Revered as one of the best places to live in California, it’s a California dream.
With extensive, broad beaches interspersed with protected marine wetlands (favored haunts of bird-watchers), the landscape epitomizes the beauty and fun of Southern California.
Huntington Beach enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate of warm, dry summers and mild winters, making for delightful outdoor living conditions all year long. This complements the de facto local dress code of swimsuits and flip-flops.
Landscape designs in Huntington Beach make the most of these favorable conditions. Yards are built for outdoor living; cooking, dining, lounging, and even showering facilities are all commonly featured in landscape designs. Planting hypes up the beachy feel with palms and other chunky tropical plants, while paying equal heed to water conservation, a must in drought-stricken California.

HUNTINGTON BEACH LANDSCAPING FAQS
Huntington Beach landscapes embrace a casual, coastal feel. Some yards lean more traditional, with sturdy green shrubs, patches of lawn, and flowering borders. Others skew modern, with oversized concrete pavers, low-slung hardwood decks, and boundary-free, flowing layouts. Hardscape materials tend to adopt a palette of sandy neutrals – a bit of gray and a bit of tan, skewing warmer in hue for traditional designs and cooler for modern yards.
Regardless of style, designs place comfort at a premium – these are landscapes for kicking your feet up after a day at the beach.
Planting balances a penchant for tropical accents with the imperative to conserve water. Succulents and drought-tolerant plants feature heavily across the style spectrum.
Swimming pools big and small are also popular, particularly in households with children.
Drought is a major concern throughout California, and landscape designs in Huntington Beach should do their utmost to conserve water.
Climate-adapted plants from regions like Australia, South Africa, and the Mediterranean can play an important role in a water-wise landscape. Lavender, rosemary, Leucadendron, rock purslane, and fruitless olive trees are some of our favorite climate-adapted species for Huntington Beach landscapes.
Having evolved to thrive in local conditions, plants native to the Huntington Beach region are excellent choices for water savings. Native plants also go a step further, offering unbeatable habitat value. By including native plants in their landscape designs, homeowners can help in the broader effort to restore biodiversity. Native yarrow, California lilac, manzanitas, and Canyon Prince wild rye are just a few of the many fabulous natives available for Huntington Beach landscapes.
Looking to max out your bird and bee visitors? Include keystone native species like oak trees, California sagebrush, or California fuchsia.
Water conservation is a key consideration when designing Huntington Beach landscapes. Minimizing or eliminating lawns is often the most impactful decision a homeowner can make to reduce their landscape water consumption, though choosing water-wise native and climate-adapted species is also crucial.
For designs closer to the coast, salt tolerance is also a factor to consider. Look for plants native to dune or coastal bluff ecosystems – they will have evolved to tolerate salty conditions.
Now! Any time of year is great to begin work on a landscape project.
When possible, we suggest utilizing the winter to work through the design phase – this sets you up to get on contractors’ books early in the build season, so you can have your design installed and ready to enjoy in time for summer.
If winter has passed, don’t worry, it’s never too late in the year to begin work on a landscape design project.
