Norman is the President and founder of Ohana Lawn Service. He started the company in 1985 and has been at the helm ever since.

He spends his days consulting with clients on a wide range of issues related to property management.  Our work on the landscape is related to many other facets of maintenance around the property, and with his years of experience Norman has created an invaluable network of professionals in the housing related industries.

He lived all over the U.S. and Europe as a child growing up in an Army family.  He later served in Vietnam and settled in Hawaii where he and wife Judith have raised their five boys.

Many times folks feel stumped by a garden or property issue and think the answer can’t be found.  Norman can’t fix em all, but 99% of the time he can.

He is… The Most Interesting Yard Man.

History of Ohana

Ohana Lawn Service Hawaii

Ohana Lawn Service is a family owned business that has been serving Windward Oahu since 1985. Over the years, we have made amazing friendships in the community with residents and businesses alike. Some of our clients have been with us for over 25 years! We are grateful to have such loyal customers, and we do our best to continue to earn their loyalty with each service.

Your landscape is a very important and dynamic part of your property. It is the first thing a visitor sees, and it is the first thing to look unattractive when not maintained. And because it needs weekly maintenance, it is an intimate choice when you decide whom to bring onto your property. When you choose Ohana, you can rest assured in every way you are making the right choice.
