No Ka ‘Oi: What’s In a Name?

Posted by

DSC_0036Simply: the best.

That’s the meaning of No Ka ‘Oi in Hawaiian, and we adopted the name for our Kauai landscaping firm because we set high standards for our work. We want our clients to know that we live up to our name. Being the best means operating a business that is relevant, focused on quality and delivers uncommon customer service—we care about every property as if it were our own.

Here's a look at what No Ka 'Oi means to the No Ka Oi Landscape Services staff. 

Dedicated To Manuahi

By that, we mean taking the extra measure. We strive to exceed clients’ expectations, and because of that they talk about us. A significant percentage of our work is based on referrals, so we know that many of the clients who hire us do so because of our no ka ‘oi culture.

It’s our job to uphold our reputation by going the extra mile, whether that means suggesting sustainable solutions that will ease maintenance and lessen the environmental impact, or ensuring that every property looks immaculate after delivering landscape maintenance service.

Focused On Commercial Landscape Maintenance

DSC_0008No Ka ‘Oi Landscape Services is dedicated to commercial landscape maintenance. Eighty percent of our work is maintenance, and 20 percent is design/build, mostly enhancements for our maintenance clients, which allows them to work with a company that truly understands their needs.

We aren’t trying to be everything to everyone. We are the only company in Kauai focused on maintenance, and we like installation relationships to transition into long-term maintenance. That way, we know we can maintain the integrity of the landscape.

Committed To Sustainability

Kauai is known as the garden island — it is our responsibility to create and maintain landscapes that are natural and sustainable. This means we must look at new ways of approaching challenges in Kauai commercial landscapes.

We search for ways to lighten our environmental footprint—and our clients appreciate that the sustainable landscape we design and maintain are much easier to care for and look lush because the plants are intended for our island environment.

Training the Best Landscapers

No Ka ‘Oi Landscape Services is a two-time recipient of PLANET’s no accidents/injuries award. That means our company had a perfect safety record for two five-year stretches—something we’re very proud of.
