We got a series of bids to have a retaining wall, paver patio and pergola installed in our backyard. All the bids were within a few thousand dollars of each other, but our interactions with the contractors were night and day. Joi Aoki and Rita Pacheco, the principals of Aoki Landscaping, are a breed apart. When you get right down to it, the best contractors are those where the price is commensurat...

This member requested a quote on 9/25/19. I responded that we were booked up for the year 9/26/19 on Angie’s List. I never sent them a request for a review. An F rating on a review I never requested after replying promptly.

Joi and her crew did beautiful work. Not only did they build a plan and make recommendations to improve what we were thinking, they built an absolutely gorgeous sustainable redwood deck that is 48’ x 14’. From the beginning, Joi listened and suggested the most aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound approach. She provided recommendations for how to maintain access to a sprinkler box and a ho...

Everything went great - they did everything they said they would do and left no messes each day after they left. They were careful with existing lawn and landscape. They completed the project in ideal time and we couldn't be happier. They spent time after the project was completed to explain care for our new plants and even emailed a list reiterating instructions for care.

I needed some ideas so I asked Joi to come out and was willing to pay the $20 consult fee. I liked what I heard and decided I wanted to purchase her vision for our yard (detailed plans that could be carried out by either her team or another contractor). We agreed she would do a landscape design for $600 and she said it would be a few weeks (no problem). Three weeks later she brought the "landscape...

Read the rest of our reviews. To date, 85% of our reviews have been excellent. Out of 68 reviews there have been 50 ’A’ ratings, 3 ‘B’ ratings and the rest of the bad reviews were from people we never worked for, but were disgruntled with the price of the estimate. People in general are smart enough to put into perspective the quality of our vision, installations, and work ethic if they read our r...

Aoki Landscaping did a fantastic job! They successfully relocated a tree including replanting it in another location in front yard. Removed sod and dirt, modified sprinkler system and installed concrete forms to widen driveway approximately 7 feet wide and 30 feet long including forming steps near the house to provide safe access to the side yard. I highly recommend Aoki Landscapingfor this type o...

Extremely well! A few hiccups when machinery went down, but we were notified and kept in the loop for any delays. This is a great team! They work well together, are fun to be around and get involved in any design changes we wanted or they thought might work better - couldn't have better cooperation all around. Very easy to work with. I HIGHLY recommend Joi, Rita and their team.

Wonderfully. They “got” the idea of what I wanted and worked carefully to make it a reality. Wonderful, fun & responsive people to work with. Others I talked with were to quick to interject their concept instead of mine. And seemed to want it done too fast. Aoki Landscaping made sure it was done properly. And keep to the quote except for some changes I made after they started for which reasonable ...

I first contacted Aoki Landscaping based on the work displayed on their website; I was looking specifically for a contemporary look without the cookie-cutter suburban feel. After leaving a message, I was delighted when my call was returned within hours and an initial meeting set for that week. Aoki Landscaping prepared a plan within the timeframe promised and was happy to work through requested va...
