Cutting Edge deserves 10 stars! Their work is professional and delivers an outstanding result! Max the owner, listens to the customers vision and adds his own knowledge and experience to create a masterpiece! If there are any issues after the project is finished, he’ll personally come out and address them! Thanks again Cutting Edge! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cutting Edge/ Max was extremely professional, had great design ideas and his crew – exceptional. I would absolutely recommend using them. They did a fanatic job with our house -I couldn’t be happier!

Outstanding quality and service from design to completion! Cutting Edge designed and installed a complete landscaping package for our new construction home, including a sprinkler system. Before construction could begin on our home, we needed a landscaping design for the developer to approve – Max provided us with a design & quote within 1 day and included everything we asked for in the design. When it came time to install the landscaping, Max and his crew showed up and completed the job sooner than any of us expected. Even our builder was blown away by how fast it was completed and the quality of work. Thank you!

We had three trees removed in the back yard. Pine needles were destroying the pool and filter. Zach from Arbor Tech cut the trees down and ground out all of the roots and the stumps. Did not destroy the yard in the process. They did a great job. Highly recommend them!!

Cutting Edge came in and removed all the stump grindings. Cut out a large section of the back yard. Leveled out and regraded that area and then installed all new sod. Max was awesome to deal with. Very prompt. They gave me a date and showed up and finished it as scheduled. Crew was hard working and very professional. Put plywood down to protect the yard. Even Fixed an unrelated broken sprinkler line. I absolutely recommend them and they will definitely be my go to in the future.



Hello, I’d like to provide my reasons to why I gave a 5 star review to Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscape. First, let me say, that we are so happy and content with the outcome of their work. Mr. Groen arrived to my home to discuss at length plans for the backyard/patio. He didn’t rush me, but meticulously listened to my dreams for the backyard. He drew up plans and we made some changes, and decided on a start date.
His crew was on time every day and always cleaned up at the end of the day. I cannot say enough of Mr. Groen’s crew. They are the best at what they do. They are precise at measuring and laying all the tiles, grass, etc. My husband and I can tell they take pride in their work and end product. There is definitely “teamwork” all around with this company. We would highly recommend Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscape.

They do a great job.

Max and his team of Jake and the crew did an outstanding job harley raking, leveling and putting down new grass seed for my one acre lot in Lake Village Indiana. They also corrected my drainage issue in the front yard and we look forward to see what he can with some future landscaping project in and around our new house.

I would highly recommend Cutting Edge Lawn service for your landscaping and irrigation needs. The service was excellent!! Their crew was extremely efficient, neat, clean, and fast. Max, the owner, was wonderful to deal with. We got quality work for an affordable price. Do yourself a favor and call them if for nothing else but to meet a great guy! Great job !!!!!!

Dan C.


I received a sprinkler system for my front and back yard in 2021. I was very pleased with the price and quality of work. The guys completed the install quickly. I have the greenest yard on the block. Cutting Edge follows up at the end of each season to offer its winterization service. I would highly recommend Cutting Edge.

Janice M.


We’ve been customers for years and can’t say enough good about their work and service, whether it’s landscaping design, maintenance, or taking care of our irrigation system. Kudos to everyone there!

Daniel R.


From start to finish Max and his team went above and beyond for my backyard project! Highly recommend.

Patrick E.


I cannot share enough good things about Cutting Edge Landscaping. We recently built a new home in Ellendale (Crown Point) on a very challenging, hillside lot and were looking for a partner to not only provide a solid basis of landscaping (sod, mulched beds, irrigation, trees), but a VISION for what our property could become. Boy did Max and his crew deliver!!

Max visited the site before our appointment and had everything planned in advance. Two days later he walked the almost completed property with us and laid out the plan. He told us what it would take to “really do it up”, and less than a week later we received an estimate for all of the work at more than HALF the next closest bidder.

When the crew conducted the installations, they did so with quality and care. Where there were unforeseen issues, the Cutting Edge crew came up with a solution. Only once did they ask for more money…and only for materials outside of the original scope needed to deliver OUR complete vision.

We will use Cutting Edge again for annual irrigation servicing, bed maintenance, and any more extensive additions to our backyard paradise. As said up front…I couldn’t recommend someone more!

Karen A.


We have used Max & his crew at Cutting Edge at our current home & our previous home. He does an awesome job & we are very happy with the beautiful results.

Joshua B.


Cutting Edge Lawn & Landscape is the go to landscaping company for Blackburn Builders! Great quality at a great price! What more could you ask for!?

Tony T.


Cutting edge has done a great job on our landscaping in St. John, IN. Max has routinely checked up on us for the past year and continues to show interest in his work. The design and colors for the plan he developed add an element to the street appeal of the house that is great.

Kay H.


We used Cutting Edge to re-configure our sprinklers after a pool install. Max, the owner, and his team did a great re-doing & upgrading our sprinkler system. Max is top notch. He’s very knowledgeable and patiently answered all of my questions. Neatly and professionally done job. They also laid sod where the bobcat for our pool killed the grass and some trouble areas. We are very pleased with their courteous service. We will definitely continue to use Cutting Edge!

Laura M.


Cutting Edge did an outstanding job removing our old grass and laying down new sod. They also cleaned up and mulched existing landscaping beds for us. I was impressed by the quality of work and how well they cleaned up afterwards. The workers were friendly, courteous, and efficient. Would absolutely recommend for landscaping needs.

Ryan C.


They always do a great job plowing but the person blowing Coyne in St John yesterday was able to jump start my car and was very nice and helpful.

Diana R.


I want to give a shout out to Cutting Edge Lawn & Landscape! All I can say is WOW! They do such an amazing job! They went above and beyond what I was expecting, and I couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend Cutting Edge Lawn service if you’re looking for the WOW factor in your landscaping!
Thank you so much Cutting Edge!!

L. Wood


We can highly recommend Cutting Edge for the work performed in St. John. They took my rudimentary design and turned it into a work of art. The entire team was professional, talented, timely in their daily arrivals as well as in the delivery of the various aspects of the project.

Thomas H.


Great company.

Marty G.


Our first experience using Cutting Edge was to install 2 large landscapes beds in our backyard several years ago and we couldn’t have been happier with the finished project. After that, we knew they would be the only company we would want and trust for a much larger project which was restoring our backyard after an in-ground pool installation. Needless to say, our property looked like a warzone before Cutting Edge took over. We gave them full reign on the design of the patio and landscape. All of Max’s suggestions were spot on to what we were looking for, and more importantly, for things we never even thought of. They handled every aspect of this project – installation of the patio, putting drainage in for the patio, repairing the sprinkler system, planting the landscape, and installing landscape lights. The crew of Cutting Edge were very hard working and respectful of our property. Max was quick to respond to whatever questions we had along the way. And on top of everything else, the project was done in the timeframe he gave us. Needless to say, the backyard turned out beautiful. We have received countless compliments on the work performed by Cutting Edge. It’s the only landscaping company we would recommend!

Paul K.


Called multiple companies to turn my irrigation system on and everyone was overbooked. Made a call to Cutting Edge and they were able to get me in right away. I understand businesses are short staffed and companies are busy but Cutting Edge went above and beyond to get me in right away. I appreciate that. Thanks guys!

Nicole R.

Max did an amazing job transforming my dreams of a country front yard into reality. I love sitting on my porch and looking at my beautiful plants and flowers, it is so peaceful!! His crew is very professional and prices are reasonable. He is top of the line !!

Sarah E.


Thank you so much for truly transforming our new house. We love everything you picked out and installation of everything was very quick and all your men were very kind. We appreciate all the hard work and how clean you left everything when complete.

Dustin E.


The owner, Max, was extremely patient and professional with the whole process. From the start of design to the final install, the communication was very good and concise. The install was fast and looks great. I would highly recommend this service for any landscape needs.

Alana G.


I used Max and his crew at Cutting Edge to clear out our existing landscape and stone… (So so much stone ) and prep both front and backyard for new landscape.

His crew was fast, efficient and professional.
And biggest plus…reasonably priced for all the work they did. Cutting Edge really saved us tons of time.
Look forward to using their services in the future. Until than I will be recommending them to all my friends and family.

If you are in need of landscaping work of any kind I highly recommend you look into Cutting Edge.

Mike D.


Cutting Edge was recommended to me by my landscape designer. I was put in touch with Max who was extremely responsive, friendly, professional and took all the initiative. Max and his crew crushed the work we needed completed… His team exceeded my expectations and exceeded the contracted scope of work.

After completion of this initial project for landscaping, I am contracting with his team again to complete some irrigation repairs. I have told my friends, family, coworkers and neighbors about how happy we are with the work completed and I anticipate utilizing Cutting Edge on my next house. Companies with this level of integrity need to be promoted as this is how businesses should be run. I highly recommend this company. Please do not hesitate to reach out to his team, they rock!

Dale B.


Just had my patio repaired. It is fantastic! Max and crew are the BEST!

Judy W.


We built a new home in Crown Point while living in Missouri. It was so easy working with Max. He was excellent from the design stage to the installation and follow up. His hard scape (pavers) employees are exception. They added detail we weren’t even expecting. We highly recommend Cutting Edge for any landscape installation!



We had sod installed with an irrigation system. Additionally, we had an area seeded as well as flower beds planted around the entire house.

The team at Cutting Edge was very responsive to our needs and performed the work professionally and quickly with attention to detail. The initial quote did take somewhat longer than expected, however with number of new homes being constructed in the area coupled with labor challenges it was nothing that would change my review of the services rendered.

There was even an issue where a few of the Arborvitae did not make it through the winter. Cutting Edge resolved the issue quickly. I would definitely recommend Cutting Edge for your landscaping needs based on my personal experience.

Laura M.


Max and his team recently completed our patio extension/backyard landscaping project and we couldn’t be happier!! From start to finish, they were extremely professional and worked quickly to deliver our dream backyard. We also added edging to our existing landscaping and absolutely love how it turned out. If you are looking for the best landscaping company in NWI, you’ve found it. Thanks Cutting Edge!!

Frank P.


Extremely Professional, I highly recommend these guys!!

Maggie P.


They installed an irrigation system. They were very professional. They installed it in a timely manner. The owner answered all my questions. Then he came by and checked everything out. Very courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. I would call them again for any landscaping needs.

Mark L.


I can’t speak highly enough of the job Max and his team did in transforming my ugly backyard into something awesome. They tore up our old rotting deck and cracked patio slab and created an awesome backyard oasis with a new Trex deck and a gorgeous paver patio and path. The guys showed up at 8 a.m. on the nose every day and did exceptional, professional work. Highly recommended.

Anne F.


Max and his team designed and installed the landscaping at our new house and we are really pleased with the results. Max took the time to find out what mattered most to us, did everything he said he was going to do, and provided great customer service. We would definitely use them again and highly recommend them.

Amanda S.


Max and Maria were very patient awesome! They did a great job with my all of my landscaping including lighting, irrigation, lawn, and installing plants and shrubs!

Breanne F.


I’ve been working with Cutting Edge for the last four years and they have done an excellent job. We use them for our irrigation system maintenance, weekly mowing, fertilization service and all our landscaping needs. They are reliable and have excellent customer service. Max designed our backyard patio & fire pit and I love everything about it! If you are looking for a one stop shop for all your outdoor needs, give them a call. You won’t be disappointed.

Jeanine S.


Max completely landscaped my new home. He did irrigation, sod, trees, perennials, borders. It looks amazing! We get compliments every day. We got a couple of quotes and Max had more value for the money. Max is responsive, a good listener and great designer. We are thrilled with are beautiful front and back yard! Highly recommend.

Michael H.


This is a great company to do business with! They are true professionals and do amazing detailed work. Thanks guys!

Jacque P.


Good crew.

Karen D.


From Max Groen’s first visit to our home bid on our patio project, to the completion of the job today, he and his company handled everything with ease. His crew was punctual, professional and skilled. Cutting Edge was one of 4 companies we spoke with about our project. We chose them because they not only were confident to execute the design we had in mind, but also came up with suggestions to make it even better. The final product exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be more pleased!

Joe L.

Great guys to work with!!!!

Todd B.

Max and his very professional crew constructed an awesome patio with a pergola, fire pit, an outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill, and new landscaping that has totally transformed our backyard. My wife wanted curving edges with contrasting pavers and the custom cuts were right on. (shout out to Roldopho and his cutting skills!) We appreciated Max’s brainstorming ideas and also that he listened to us to get get a feel of what we really wanted and liked. The crew took care of everything, not just the patio construction…lighting, sprinkler adjustments, downspout moving, plantings, and sod repair were all done professionally. They created a beautiful and functional living space for our friends and family. We highly recommend Max and Cutting Edge Landscaping!

Joanne B.

The crew is very professional and hard-working. Max and his crew created a private sanctuary in my backyard.

Gail B.

We can’t say enough great things about Max and his crew at Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscaping! We were very impressed with his energy, responsiveness, creativity and competitively-priced proposal. His hard-working crew was on time, talented, detail-oriented, pleasant and cleaned up every night prior to leaving. We took his advice and completed a late-fall project we can enjoy first thing next spring. Without reservation, we’d recommend speaking to Max for any landscaping needs. We love the front and back landscaping and paving projects he completed at our home. Five stars!

Kristi F.

Great company to work with! Highly recommended!!!

Coreen G.

Chris G.

I can’t say enough good things about Max and his crew. Max was the only landscaper who offered to put a plan together for me and show me his recommendations to make our yard look amazing. He is super knowledgeable about all the plants and trees and took my vision and exceeded my expectations. He was very responsive and his team are all true professionals and very courteous. If you have ANY landscaping needs I highly recommend Cutting Edge!

Michael F.

Very easy to work with! Quality job in a timely fashion! The owner came out during the process and spoke with me and answered any question I had! You can tell he and the crew were very dedicated to service! Highly recommend this company for any project!

We can’t say enough about how pleased we are with Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscaping. The transformation of our surroundings went beyond what we expected and we’re now enjoying a beautiful resort vibe in our own backyard. It actually feels like our livable home space for entertaining and dining just doubled. Max and his team are creative, professional, accommodating, meticulous and finished this big job on time. And with the exception of a few add-ons that we requested mid-project, they finished within budget.

Daniel L.

We can’t say enough good things about Max and Cutting Edge. They just completed our large patio and yard, and we are thrilled. Max did what he promised, on time and with high quality work. He suggested a two-level plan, due to the large square footage, and it is terrific. The built-in grill and fire pit, along with the sitting wall that surrounds the Unilock patio, give the area stylish dimension and a feeling of sophistication. Max is young and assertive. Put your trust in him. He has a good eye and knows how to implement. You’ll be thrilled with the results!

Kevin L.

The crew at Cutting Edge was great to work with. Max was very professional and responsive to all of our needs. We were completely satisfied with the job.

Max is an honest man, Ruben turned on my irrigation and was more than helpful to me. I highly recommend them for irrigation. And I look forward to using them for a lawn service or something in the future. I will update when I have landscaping done.

David S.

We are very happy with our experience with Cutting Edge. From the first call through the completion of the project they were very professional and responsive. We couldn’t be happier with the deck and patio they completed for us and would highly recommend their service.

Taylor T.

My husband and I started a project that was much bigger than expected. Cutting Edge was there to save the day and help fill and sod our backyard. Our backyard is now beautiful, cozy and inviting. The guys were great! Very respectful and worked fast. They left our place cleaner than when they came to it. 10/10 would recommend doing business with them.

Chris T.

Max is great to work with. Extremely professional and courteous. His crew was polite and courteous. Great group of guys. Had my whole back yard filled and sodded. Can’t wait to enjoy it this summer!

Jeff F.

Cutting Edge did the sod, seed, and landscaping on our new house and did an awesome job. Max and his crew made the vision of our new house come together with the landscaping. Max is very easy to work with. Can’t wait to have Him come back to start up our sprinkler system.

Mark G.

They do a great job taking care of my lawn.

Debby F.


Cutting Edge does my lawn every week, and they do a good job and are reliable and reasonably priced. I have also had them do bigger jobs seasonally, mulching, bush trimming… I am very happy with the work they do and find all of the workers to be friendly and polite. We recently had them put in a brick sidewalk, pull some old bushes, and put in some new landscaping. We could not be happier with the outcome. I really feel that they listened to what I wanted and made my vision a reality. I highly recommend them.

Andrew V.

Working for Cutting Edge was an amazing experience. I had the privilege of working snow removal last winter and it was great. The second it starts snowing the crew is out until the job is done no matter how long it takes. Very professional and owner treats employees as if they were family. 10/10 would 100% recommend. Max takes his biz so seriously it’s humbling!

Steve F.

Max and his team are meticulous and professional. The entire process from selecting materials to digital design was so easy. He helped us create the backyard we’ve always wanted. He was very clear and upfront about when the job would be started, and how long it would take to finish. I’ve lived in St. John for years and have hired other companies to do some landscaping work in the past… Cutting Edge is HEAD AND SHOULDERS above the rest. I wish I would have found them sooner. I would recommend them to anyone!

Megan S.

Had our back patio completely remodeled last spring. I had the pleasure of meeting Max Groen and his crew. Max was easy to work with, delivered on his timeline and created a proposal that met our expectations. He was flexible to comments and/or proposed changes in material & plantings. Overall extremely satisfied with the work done by this company! Highly recommend!

Mike S.

These guys are the best in the industry!

Justin S.

Max and his crew were true professionals, and Max was personally invested in making sure we were happy. I would recommend Cutting Edge to anyone looking for quality work and a reasonable price.
