Landscaping In Los Angeles
What do you think of when you picture Los Angeles? The Hollywood Sign, Grauman’s Chinese Theater, Griffith Observatory, Hollywood Boulevard or something else? Given the size and scope of Los Angeles, there is no shortage of major sites, attractions and things to do nearby. Los Angeles is the second-most populous city in the United States, with a population of about four million people. It is also the cultural, financial and commercial center of Southern California. Perhaps most noteworthy nationwide, it is the home of Hollywood and the world’s entertainment industry. The “City of Angels” is truly a sprawling metropolis, located near the Pacific Ocean on one side and by mountains close to 10,000 feet on the other. The city is divided into over 80 neighborhoods each with its own distinct identity. All of this hustle and bustle can create a hectic atmosphere for its residents. At Pacific Outdoor Living, we believe it is important to escape into nature as often as possible. Luckily, Los Angeles is home to several major parks, including the picturesque Griffith Park and Grand Park. However, homeowners have an opportunity to escape even more frequently without having to travel far. Why not create an oasis in your own yard!
Located in Los Angeles County, our team of is here to help the residents of Los Angeles make their dream yard become a reality. One of the ways we do that is by deeply understanding the lifestyle, aesthetic, climate and plants native to the area.
Los Angeles is known for having a Mediterranean climate. Although there are microclimates throughout the city, overall L.A. has more sunny days per year than the nationwide average, with just about 35 days of rain. While temperatures in the coastal part of the city are more comfortable, temperatures in the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys are significantly hotter. Overall, temperatures can swing, spiking during the day and cooling off considerably by night. We take this into consideration when designing landscapes. Depending on where our customers live, we recommend planting large native trees, or the well-known palm trees, for some shade and relief if you are spending your days outside. We also can work with stone to create patios for evening outdoor dining especially if you invest in some heat lamps. If you’re looking for the ultimate cool down, consider adding in a pond or pool. We can even design stone and plants around the pool to seamlessly integrate it into the rest of your yard.
Luckily, there are many beautiful and colorful plants native to Southern California and the Los Angeles area in particular. Some of the most noticeable include multiple varieties of sage, sand verbanas, ferns, manzanitas, milkweed, thistle, buckwheat, and even the California state flower – the poppy! Our team of landscaping experts will be happy to consult with you to find the right plants for your budget, aesthetic, level of desired upkeep and more.
