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!

Great guys to work with!!!!

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!

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.

Max is a stand up guy with a quick response. Easy to work with! I love how he drew up a layout for me to see beforehand! It turned out beautifully!

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.

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.

Louis U.

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.
