"Had the Okada Earthscape team over to my residential home for landscaping maintenance and upkeep to start the summer off right. Honest, reasonably priced and super punctual. Will have them out as I need for maintenance all summer. Thank you!"

"Had a great experience with the crew. They pruned my parents’ Japanese maple and did a great vista pruning job. Super knowledgeable and careful with the tree, and they cleaned up everything perfectly after. Totally recommend them for anyone needing tree care."
