About Horticultural Consultants International


HCI staff keeps up with the latest developments in horticulture and tree care, such as the use of growth regulators, more efficient irrigation systems, organic and bio-friendly pesticides, drought tolerant plants and new turf varieties.

We attend conferences on the mainland and in Hawaii and keep up with several professional magazines. We work closely with the University of Hawaii’s Tropical Agriculture Department, the Cooperative Extension service, The Outdoor Circle, Kauai Landscape Industry Council and the Kauai Invasive Species Committee.

HCI is fair, honest and a professional organization that believes in providing good value for your dollars. If we cannot save you time, money and energy, then we have not done our job.

Our fee schedules can be set up either as hourly, by the day, or by the job.
