Comments: [courtesy of Yelp] So Happy we went with 4Seasons landscaping!  They did a awesome job landscaping the front of our condo building. Pam was wonderful to work with, always responded in a timely manner to answer all questions for the condo association. She is very knowledgeable about all the plants and created a beautiful design for us. Her team was very professional as well, they cleaned everything up when they were done.  Go with 4Seasons, you won’t be sorry!

Comments: [courtesy of Yelp] Just outstanding. Pam just recently finished fixing and repairing our porch and then moved on to totally overhauling our landscaping in the front yard. It looks just fantastic. She’s great to work with and very responsible. We highly recommend her!!

Comments: [courtesy of Yelp] Pam and her team did an amazing job landscaping the two parkways in front of our condo building.  Not only did she respond in a timely manner, she is super knowledgeable about plants, professional and helped us stay within our budget.  She just finished the job today and it looks BEAUTIFUL!  I am so pleased with what she did. Honestly, I wish I had another project for her to work on just so I could witness another complete transformation of land.  Thanks Pam!!!

Comments: [courtesy of Facebook] Where to start? Pam’s group came in to install. One person was nicer than the next! They JUST left and it’s quite sunny out. I don’t want to take pics until sundown as they would be washed out by the sun. Everything she hand picked and installed is gorgeous! I’ve dealt with quite a few workers in my home over the years. I can honestly say I’ve never had a crew more respectful of my home and the clean-ups. Other than the new landscaping you wouldn’t even know anyone was here! Highly, highly recommend for outside and inside work! Thank you 4 Seasons!

Comments: [courtesy of Yelp] I have worked with Pam and her crew for two years now. She has transformed my front and backyard into a magical place. She respects your budget and wishes and is very knowledgeable about landscaping. I have received compliments not only from friends but total strangers that stop to knock on my door. I look forward to working with her in years to come.

  WOW….Pam and her crew transformed our front yard.  She obviously spent hours on the design.  We now have flowers that bloom thru out the seasons.  I can’t tell you how many compliments we have received.  Pam always responded to our phone calls, text and emails, a pleasure to work with.  Highly recommended.

Not only did Pam (and her expert assistant Kris) do a lovely job, they put up with and answered all my incessant questions about tending the new garden.  They are so fun and enthusiastic.  I look forward to seeing them again in the Spring.

I was very impress with Pam, the owner.  She is quick to response to emails and provide information.  Pam also came out within three days of contacting her for an estimate for a landscaping job for our condo building.  She took time to assess and had suggestions that day for improving the look of the area.  We had three other companies come out.  Pam’s estimate was fair, the second lowest but she was the best with communicating.  Pam’s team was quick and efficient once work began.  In two days we had a beautiful front landscape that improved the overall appearance of the condo building.  A pleasure to work with Pam.

Comments: [courtesy of YelpLast fall we moved from a town home in Lincoln Park to a single family in Edgewater.  We hired Pam and her crew to paint and detail every inch of our town home as we were preparing it for sale. They did a wonderful job at a very fair price.  Based on that experience, we hired them again for a couple of painting projects at our new home. Again, excellent work, fair price and completed ahead of schedule. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend 4 Seasons to anyone I knew looking for paint work. I have also seen some of Pam’s landscaping work and it is amazing.

Comments: [courtesy of YelpMy condominium association hired 4 Seasons to do a complete landscaping job around our building. This included two parkways (we’re a corner building), a corner parkway, and a side bed. The work was done quickly, on budget, and exceeded expectations. The plants are perfect for our soil/sunlight conditions and are all perennials so they’ll be back every year. The trees show great promise already and are establishing very nicely. The owner Pam Yokoyama and her staff are knowledgeable, competent, friendly, and were very patient with our board on some last minute questions/concerns. Overall, we got a terrific-looking garden that really lifts both the curb appeal of our building and the look of the neighborhood in general.  While out watering or weeding, I consistently receive compliments from neighbors on the quality and beauty of the beds! We highly recommend Ms. Yokoyama and 4 Seasons Painting and Landscaping. We’ve given out all their cards. :)

Comments: [courtesy of Yelp]  I found Pam several years ago thru Yelp and it’s wonderful reviews of her and her work. I have not been disappointed. She is creative, thoughtful, prompt, artistic and a great person to work with. She sticks to my budget. There are no surprises – except, of course, for how beautiful the flowers are. Her work is wonderful. I wish I had found her years ago!

Pam from 4 Seasons provided me with a plan to redo the front yard  landscaping @ my Mother’s 3 flat.  She took into consideration so much more than just what to plant in the space.  There is a small space within the front yard that gets more sun than the rest of the width of the front yard.  Pam took into consideration what to plant in just this sunny space.  She  chose beautiful  plants for the shadier areas of the space.  She also came up with a plan to improve the look of the front yard utilizing some existing plants.

I had shared concern to other providers regarding the height of the plants as a security concern as there are basement windows behind where the new landscaping would go.  Pam LISTENED and assured me that the height of the new landscape took into consideration my security concerns.  I don’t live at the property where the work was to be done and Pam also considered that in her plan.  According to Pam the plan was simple but would look good and be easy to take care of.

Pam took a look at the space and emailed her plan about a week later.  It was BEAUTIFUL and included varieties and pictures of each plant and scrub she suggested.  She hand-picks the shrubs and plants from high quality nurseries.  She also includes instruction on care of the plants.  The space has old evergreens that Pam arranged to have removed prior to planting.  Following the removal of the evergreens Pam wanted to see how the ground looked and wanted it to “set” for a few days.  We were also having tuckpointing and power-washing so Pam assured me that the planting should wait until after this work was done.  Having said all of the above, we decided to wait until spring to revisit the work for a number of reasons ( we may be selling the building).  Pam was understanding of our situation.
I highly recommend Pam and will definately check back with her in the spring.  Additionally I will also consider using her services for painting in the winter.  Pam from 4 Seasons is professional, skilled, and understanding of each of her clients individual needs.  I highly recommend the company.

We used Pam and four seasons to power wash our pavers and deck, reseal pavers and to paint our deck.  We also had her plant a beautiful new tree in our backyard.  Pam was a pleasure to work with and there were no problems with the whole process.  Our deck and pavers looks amazing and everyone is asking us who did the work.  Our tree is incredible as well and we are going to have the best summer ever thanks to Pam and our new backyard.  I highly recommend Pam and four seasons.

Pam/4 Seasons is the best.  I have hired her to do a few things:  A new garden in the front and back; staining the deck and front porch (and putting in new lattice around them); putting new wooden gates on the front and back of my house; and, installing a storm door on the back.  She got the quotes to me before anyone else did.  All the work has been done exactly as we agreed and exactly when she said it would be done. Also, the guys she had do the work were wonderful.  Very professional and friendly.  And, there were two sets of crews (one for the gardening and another for the staining, gates and storm door jobs), so it wasn’t as though I got lucky.  In addition to getting the work done on time and per the agreement, Pam answered my questions quickly and completely. I highly recommend her and I have recommended her to two other friends so far.

4 Seasons has now done multiple projects for us and is doing another one this weekend!  They did a fantastic job painting our powder room, wallpapering our entry way and doing brick paver work in our front yard. The work is always done to perfection with fantastic results.  Plus, they are so easy to work with and just good people.

Pam came out and gave me an estimate to paint the second floor of my house.  Her price was very reasonable and I felt very comfortable dealing with her.  She was very knowledgable and professional.  Most important she did everyting she said she would do and the end result was beautiful.  Pam will highly recommended  to anyone I know needing painting.

We contracted with 4 Seasons last year and happily hired them again this year to further improve and enhance our urban front yard. It was yet another terrific experience. After experiencing Pam’s thoughtful creativity and great work last year, I’m sure I would have been delighted with anything she came up with, no questions asked, but as usual, prior to the job, she came over and walked me through our space, discussing her ideas and various exciting options for seamlessly continuing the design initiated last season. The work was performed a few days later, in one day, and the results are gorgeous, including several new and unusually beautiful, sizable shrubs (witch hazel, variegated dogwood, hydrangea) and oodles of new plants (among other things, the toad lilies are stunning!). Pam offers exceptional follow-up, as well: photos of the new installation, with each plant annotated, along with a corresponding list of their identities – a very handy tool. In sum, 4 Seasons is a special company, offering genuinely personalized service and exceptional work and care. The value for the money cannot be beat, and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

My house is painted beautifully, thanks to Pam and her crew from 4 Seasons. They were recommended to me from a local business and after talking to a few other recommended companies I went with 4 Seasons b/c of expertise, price, and a good eye for color. Pam is great with suggestions and has been willing to talk to me to get the colors just right — for me, who likes to talk things out and get professional input, this has been invaluable.
Pam has been great to work with. Everything looks great and professionally done, and she is timely and efficient to work with. The only things I didn’t like after they were done were the walls they *hadn’t* painted — next to their work, my old walls looked pretty shabby….so, I hired her back to paint them, too :) Next up after that: she will help with  a fireplace rehabilitation job — she brought alot of ideas and inspiration for the project. I’m really glad I found 4 Seasons and I highly recommend them.

I really cannot say enough positive things about 4 Seasons Painting and Landscaping. When I called Pam (the owner) she got back to me right away and was able to come give me an estimate the next day. She was very flexible and prompt the entire time I worked with her. I hired 4 Seasons to  paint a porch, stain a deck, install a fence and landscape a front and back yard and the results were amazing. Pam really took the time to work with me to create exactly what I wanted at a great price. I would recommend them to anyone!

I just moved out to the city from the burbs and I was referred to 4 Seasons Painting by a friend out here and they were grrreat! Pam is really friendly and knowledgeable about colors (I almost made an oopsie with a bad yellow) and her crew was fast and efficient. I was really happy with the end result!

Sondra B in Chicago, IL 
Project: Remodel
Comments:  In the spring of this year when I knew that I would have considerable work to bring my rental unit to a condition that would be desirable to a responsible tenants, I called Pam Yokoyama at 4 Seasons. Ms Yokoyama has done several projects for me in the past. I was impressed with her promptness in responding, her ability to get the job done in a reasonable amount of time, her employees who are skilled and respectful and with her reasonable rates.

The job of bringing the unit to an attractive state was BIG. The bathroom was gutted, new vanity, sink, toilet, etc.; the kitchen was rehabbed with new counter tops, dishwasher installed where there had been none, cabinets refurbished; all rooms painted, with a wonderful discovery by 4 Seasons staff that under the sheet vinyl there was hardwood oak floor. All hardwood floors were sanded throughout. The sunroom floor needed to be completely replaced because of the damage done by the cats the previous tenant hoarded. To say the least it was an enormous job.

The job was done efficiently, beautifully with consideration for my budget.

There are a couple things that I really appreciate about Ms Yokoyama and those are: she has a great sense of color and style and that she listens and gives reasonable advice.

I highly recommend 4 Seasons

Feel free to contact me.

Sincerely

Project: Refinish Already Installed Cabinets
Comments: I was looking to have my existing kitchen cabinets painted and although 4 Seasons’ was not the least expensive estimate, after talking to Pam, hearing her ideas, and checking out her references, I knew her team was the one I wanted to hire. Angel and George did the work of sanding, priming, and painting, and I was impressed with their skill. They did the work quickly and expertly, ensuring that there was as little disruption to my home as possible. They also went a little crazy with extra touch ups, working on shelves and trim that were not included in the estimate. Thank you! I am very happy with my decision to hire 4 Seasons.

Comments: From beginning to end, Pam was very professional and easy to work with. She was one of the only contractors we saw that was willing and able to address the underlying causes beneath our problems, not just provide a cosmetic band-aid solution. Her crew was great! They were always on time, polite, and paid attention to detail. We unequivocally recommend 4 Seasons and we’re already thinking about what other rooms we can repaint, since Pam made the process so easy. Thanks Pam (and Angel and the crew)!

Comments: 4 Seasons kept all the committments that they made. Calls and emails were answered promptly – appointments were kept and on time. The quotes were detailed and the worked completed to the specifications listed in the contract. I felt that the owner of the business and staff was easy to talk to.

Thank you.

Project: Repair Drywall
Comments: 4 Seasons did a phenomenal job on our place. The project involved patching holes in the wall and ceiling from a ceiling fan installation and repainting the whole room. After they had finished, we couldn’t see where the holes had been, and the painting was top notch. They also replaced some baseboard and quarter round. The job was done on time and on budget, and 4 Seasons was very easy to work with. I would highly recommend them for any drywall and painting project.

Dina N in Chicago, IL 
Project: Repair Plaster
Comments: 4 Seasons Painting Company did an excellent job repairing the holes in my ceiling caused by new electrical work. They were prompt, professional, and very detailed oriented. They went beyond the job description of repairing the holes by offering to calk the perimeter and repaint the ceiling. All for the original quoted price! Pamela, the owner took the time to explain the process giving me a step by step description of what to expect. She supervised the work and made sure that the room was returned to its proper oder after the job. I will definitely recommend and use 4 Seasons again. Dina and Rob N.

Comments: Pam was extremely helpful throughout the process. She came to my house to give a quote and had emailed me the quote within 2 hours of leaving. I had her come out the next day (on a Sunday no less) to help me pick out paint colors and she went to pick up paint that day. The painters were very nice, and extremely good. The job took extra time and material because of stubborn wallpaper that had to come down, but Pam was very good at informing me what was going on throughout the whole thing. I had a great experience with 4 Seasons and would use them again. The prices are competitive and the staff is amazing. Thanks Pam!

Comments: Even though we had a small job (1 small room), Pam was very professional and attentive to our needs. We talked about what we would do, setup a time and both she and Wellington (the painter) arrived on-time. They reviewed the job and Wellington got started. He was very quick, polite, professional and very good! Our baby’s nursery looks great! I would highly recommend 4 Seasons Painting and plan to use them again on our next painting project.

Comments: We found Four Seasons and Pam to be very professional. Their quote was fair in relation to the others (although not the lowest), they showed up each day on time, cleaned-up at the end of each day and, were extremely courteous. They also did the little things (things that you would do if you were doing the job yourself) that made us feel good about choosing them.

Comments: We are very happy with the exterior paint job of our home. The house looks both clean and new again. They removed/replaced more bad wood than I had thought there was and this was all done without a single change to the contractual cost. It was also a pleasure working with Pam. We had correspondence via email, phone, in-person and she was always accomodating. She even offered suggestions for the present and potential future work to our home. I would not hesitate to hire them again. Thanks Pam!
