If you're looking for landscaping done on time, for the amount promised, with excellent service, and high quality plants, DO NOT use Akina Designs. From start to finish this was a poor operation, with a lack of accountability going all the way to the top. From the consultation on, we were deeply disappointed. After being shown photos of what we could expect, we actually thought the plants installed at our new home were a joke. They could not have been more different than what was estimated (i.e. a set of 2' seedlings installed instead of 6' shrubs). Two grown trees were installed, and died within 3 weeks. After suggesting we didn't know how to water trees, another set were installed, with "fool proof" water bags. They too, died within weeks. Owner and client rep refused to take phone calls, everything had to be via email (when they responded at all, which was rare). We had heard negative feedback, but trusted them because they were referred by a friend and were cost effective. Please save yourself the time, effort and frustration that will be required if you go down the rabbit hole with these jokers.
I wanted to pay for a small amount of lawn care for my friends who recently had a baby. I had a few companies turn me down when I told them it was only a small job and a one time thing. Scott was happy to provide me and my friends with the service and because of the fast and friendly job he did they will be calling him for more work in the future.Thanks Scott!
I have never written a bad review before and found myself frustrated and compelled to write about Akina Design. Akina Design talked a good game and promised many things. I felt like our entire project was a bait and switch. In the end, they completely under-delivered and over charged for the scope of work that was done. Additionally, to add salt to the wound They verbally promised a one year warranty on the trees that they installed but will not honor this agreement. PLEASE do your homework before deciding to hire this company....
He's an excellent person to work with. Very professional and super nice. I'm totally impressed with how good my yard looks :)
