Beach landscaping in Long Beach CA

At Feldman Construction, we undertook a remarkable beach landscaping project that turned a private Long Beach residence into a masterpiece. Our mission was to seamlessly blend beach-inspired aesthetics with functional outdoor spaces, all while prioritizing sustainability. The outcome is a captivating landscape that captures the essence of coastal living, right in the heart of Long Beach.

Scope of Work
  1. Design and Planning: Collaborating closely with homeowners, our team of experienced landscape architects and designers meticulously planned a beach-inspired oasis. The design embraced the client’s vision for a coastal retreat, making the most of available space and harnessing the stunning ocean views. Sustainability was paramount in every decision we made.
  2. Hardscaping Elements: Our beach landscaping project included the installation of an array of hardscaping features. A charming stone pathway winds through the garden, reminiscent of a leisurely stroll along the shore. A spacious patio area, crafted from durable materials, harmonizes perfectly with the coastal environment.
  3. Plant Selection and Softscaping: Native coastal plants were thoughtfully selected to thrive effortlessly in the local climate, requiring minimal watering and maintenance. Palms, succulents, and flowering shrubs were carefully positioned to evoke the allure of the beach while ensuring a low-maintenance landscape.
  4. Water Features: We added a soothing touch with a small koi pond featuring a gentle waterfall. This water element not only enhances the serene ambiance but also acts as a focal point for relaxation, mirroring the calming rhythms of the nearby ocean.
  5. Outdoor Entertainment Area: Understanding the value of outdoor living, we carved out a dedicated space for gatherings. Complete with a built-in barbecue station, comfortable seating, and ambient lighting, this area becomes the perfect spot for creating cherished memories with loved ones.
  6. Sustainability Features: Sustainability remained at the forefront throughout the project. Drip irrigation systems, rainwater harvesting, and the use of native plants all contributed to reduced water consumption. LED lighting was integrated to minimize energy usage, ensuring the magic of the landscape extended into the night.
