Most people wonder "why is Aloha Landscaping located in Minnesota?" The answer is simple, but it makes all the difference.
It all started in 1951 when my mother left Hawaii to attend school at Macalester College in Minnesota. She soon fell in love with my dad and Minnesota. Although I grew up in Minnesota, we spent a lot of time in Honolulu at my grandparents home. As early as I can remember we were always “landscaping" something in their yard or in the orchid houses.
Fast forward to 1998 and the official launch of Aloha Landscaping. After receiving a Master of Science degree in Industrial Psychology from San Jose State University and spending 15 years working at Lockheed Martin, I took some advice from my dad and started Aloha Landscaping. We started out looking for unique projects or projects so difficult that there was little or no competition. We learned a lot and made some great connections along the way.
2005 was a turning point for Aloha Landscaping. We went way "out of the box" and spent two weeks in Switzerland studying green roofs. When we returned we built the first major green roof in Minnesota, created a unique product that was specified on the Vancouver Convention Center green roof (second largest in the world), developed a truly organic green roof soil with a carbon footprint 1,300% lower than the conventional soil everyone uses, and built countless green roofs in Minnesota. We became a green roof company in addition to becoming one of the premier landscape construction companies in Minnesota.
In 2009, I won the national "Landscaper of the Year" award and also built the first green roof on the island of Guam.
2014 was another turning point for Aloha Landscaping. While working on a green roof for the Guam Medical City Hospital, we were introduced to a company called TileTech and their system for installing hurricane-proof roof pavers. Since then, we have become certified installers of TileTech’s pedestal paver system and have installed over 60,000 square feet of rooftop pavers all over the US.
Looking back, I am proud that we finished every project well and we had the courage to "take the road less traveled." Looking ahead, I need another lifetime, because we are just getting started. We are “building beyond the box" and having a blast doing it.
