Digging into Your Dream Garden Come True

Whether  you’re considering a complete re-design of your backyard patio and garden or just want to replace a strip of lawn with drought-resistant plants and ground cover, Dig Garden Design's expert team provides personalized landscape design and custom craftsmanship for all your outdoor living spaces.

With an emphasis on service and attention to detail, Dig Garden Design owners Chris and Dave Oakley personally supervise every project from conception to completion -- from the selection of your plants to the testing of your drip irrigation systems and the staining of your deck. Chris focuses on “the softscape” – the overall design and feel of your garden and plant selection – while Dave, owner of David Oakley Construction, Contractor’s License #623541, directs all the building and installation.

Tapping into your wish list and working within your budget, the Oakleys strive for an interactive process to ensure complete customer satisfaction. Your new garden design and landscape project will be created to compliment your lifestyle, the architectural character of your home and your local environment.

Established in 2003, Dig Garden Design has recently been featured in The Orange County Register Home section OC Home, March 2014, and Sunset Magazine, September 2014. The garden design and building contractor now serves Huntington Beach, Corona del Mar, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Seal Beach and most of Orange County.

Chris and Dave Oakley – 
Your Personal Garden Design
and Installation Team 


  When you first meet with Chris and Dave Oakley to discuss your personal wish list for your dream garden, you’ll immediately understand when they say they create each garden as if it will be their own. Beyond their sense of flair and fragrance, they’ll plan your outdoor living space with full attention to detail, budget and future maintenance.

  The Oakleys have an extensive background in gardening design and building, or “hardscape installation.” Having spent two decades in demanding positions in the corporate world, Chris found herself retreating more and more into her own personal garden at her homes in both Huntington Beach and Cambria, California. Nurturing succulents and herbs, collecting outdoor sculptures and colorful pottery, she immersed herself in landscaping and design classes. In 2003, she founded Dig Garden Design, initially building her business through referrals from friends’ who admired her artistry. 
  Dave Oakley earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Building Construction from Virginia Tech in 1985 and has been a licensed contractor since 1992 (Contractor’s License #623541.) After retiring from his career as a commercial concrete contractor, he soon joined Chris when her new projects began demanding a full range of hardscape installation and building services .
