Back in 1975, when Kevin Mulkern wasn't surfing, he was tending to plants with his fledgling landscaping business. He gradually became more land-bound over the years, and what began with a pickup truck, a few hand tools, and a mower expanded to include a 1.5-acre nursery offering extensive services. Today, Kevin and his wife, Susan, continue to draw upon that expertise to run Mulkern Landscaping and Nursery, spearheading Hawaiian landscaping associations and guilds and racking up a slew of accolades in the process.
The nursery offers a variety of tropical plants, including colorful lotus flowers, fragrant water lilies, and more than 20 varieties of bamboo. Landscaping experts can use these blooms and more to plot and install points of interest ranging from general gardens to ponds and waterfalls, granting yards character without the hassle of gluing googly eyes to each flower.
Sequestered between the rolling waves of the South Pacific and the primordial beauty of Kahana State Park?s rainforests, Kualoa Ranch is the Platonic ideal of paradise. There, experienced guides lead expeditions into 4,000 acres of serene valleys and hills, stopping by famed movie sites from Jurassic Park or LOST, peering into an 800-year-old fishpond, and stopping horses or ATVs so that explorers can soak up the expansive views of southern O'ahu. Even the ranch itself is magnificent. Pavilions serve as pristine settings for guests to celebrate or yell at the sunset, nestled at the bottom of lush green mountains and on the edge of cliffs that overlook the tranquil waters of Kane'ohe Bay. Across that glimmering surface, a private, white-sand beach where guests sunbathe and lounge rests among mangroves and hau trees.
Regardless of their exact coordinates, the Ranch?s visitors experience Kualoa's rich history firsthand. A prime example of the benefits of continued preservation, Kualoa has been everything from a family getaway to a World War II airstrip, but the owners have always sought to maintain the beauty that set it apart. The tradition continues today, as employees participate in community-work projects focused on restoration, taro planting, and fostering a sense of Hawaiian pride for every visitor.
Hui Ku Maoli Ola traces its lineage back to 1999, when friends Rick Barboza and Matt Schirman established the nursery with a mission to preserve and celebrate the distinct flora of the Hawaiian Islands. Today, the company beautifies federal lands, private homes, and retail businesses with more than 100 species of native Hawaiian plants, the descendants of specimens brought from distant shores by ancient Polynesian settlers and very strong wind. The helpful crew tends to rows of waving ferns, shady trees, and flowering bushes as they restore native habitats with professional landscaping or educate students with lectures and field trips.
