Known as a Jewel of a City, Los Alamitos delights its residents with its tight-knit communities, excellent schools, and convenient setting.

Creative, Sustainable Design Services in Los Alamitos, CA
In Los Alamitos, water conservation is a way of life. But prioritizing conscious methods of saving water doesn't mean that you can't enjoy a beautiful, lush landscape. Our college-educated experts at Cutting Edge Landscape Design have years of experience creating beautiful low-water landscapes for the Los Alamitos climate, landscape, and soil. Our services have a strong foundation in sustainability:
Native Plant Landscaping Supports Your Local Ecosystems
At its most basic, native plant landscaping means creating a landscape full of the native, indigenous plants that have flourished for ages in Los Alamitos. In general, plants native to the Los Alamitos area are just as beautiful and vibrant as imported species. Gorgeous species like sages, buckwheats, and manzanitas add color and texture to your landscape. Choosing native plants offers several benefits:
- Drought-resistant native plants use less water.
- Native plants generally won't become invasive.
- Because they're used to the area, Los Alamitos native plants have immunity to plant diseases.
- Native plants promote sustainability by requiring less fertilizer, pesticides, and other pollutants to thrive.
Sustainable and Beautiful: Low Water Landscaping
In the Los Alamitos climate, it's important to think about water conservation when creating landscapes. At Cutting Edge, we specialize in create drought-resistant and low water landscapes that create less of a strain on water and resources. Prioritizing low water techniques can help you save considerably on your water bill, and also provide a landscape that requires far less maintenance on your part.
To create these low water landscapes, our college-educated horticulturists and designers take many elements into consideration. What's your soil like? How much sun and shade does your property receive? Which local plants can thrive with little water? By analyzing all of these elements, we create a beautiful and unique landscape geared to your aesthetic.
Garden Design For Every Lifestyle
For many homeowners, a customized garden is the pinnacle of landscape design. Whether you've been carefully considering your ideal garden for years, or you have a more general idea of what you want, we can work with you throughout the design process to create the perfect garden. As you consider your garden, you might want to keep some of the following in mind:
- Type of garden. Firstly, it's important to consider the type of garden you're really interested in. An herb garden to spice up your meals? A veggie garden to nourish your family? Or a flower garden to add color and variety to your landscape?
- Size and shape. Depending on the flow of your property, your garden could be created with various dimensions and shapes. You could consider raised beds, in-ground gardening, or a combination of the two depending on your soil and specific needs.
- Maintenance. It's important to consider how much maintenance and water will be used for your garden. There are plenty of native and drought-resistant garden plants that the Cutting Edge Team can curate for your garden.
Artificial Turf Installation for Sustainable Green Spaces
For many of us, the vibrant green of a grassy lawn is irresistible: it looks lush, healthy, inviting, and natural. However, ordinary grass lawns are notorious for needing a lot of water, raising the water bill, and using too many natural resources. In addition, many homeowners would rather simply enjoy their landscape than spend hours mowing in hot conditions.
That's where artificial grass comes in. Vibrant, green, and cut to fit your lawn perfectly, our artificial grass installation can satisfy your desire for that pop of green. Because artificial grass looks so natural and seamless, your neighbors will wonder what your secret is!
Unique Landscapes: Succulent Gardens and Xeriscaping
In the Los Alamitos climate and culture, it's important to choose landscaping options that not only conserve resources — but also look absolutely stunning. In addition to our expertise in drought-resistant landscaping, we also specialize in succulent gardens and xeriscaping for low-water, low-maintenance landscapes.
Succulent gardens incorporate vibrant textures and colors into your landscape, creating a unique design that requires minimal maintenance or water. For those who love landscapes that require little to no water, xeriscaping might be the answer. This innovative technique uses drought-resistant plants and trees, in concert with other natural elements, to create a uniquely sustainable and low-upkeep landscape.

The Cutting Edge Design Process Puts Your First
Landscape design, just like interior decorating, allows homeowners to engage creatively with their home. Whether you have your desires honed down to the finest detail, or you have a more general idea of what you'd like, we can help you create the perfect landscape for your needs with our design process:
- Phone call with our team. During the first phone call, we'll have a conversation about what you're looking for from your landscape design, and how you envision the project unfolding. We'll schedule an in-person meeting so we can establish more details.
- In-person meeting. As an integral part of our first meeting, we'll talk about your top three priorities for your landscape design. We'll also discuss your budget and try to come up with a basic plan that balances your budget with your priorities.
- Meeting with a landscape designer. Then, you'll meet with our trained landscape designer to create a design plan that checks all your boxes.
- Begin construction. Once you're satisfied with the design construction, we'll move on to the exciting part: creating your ideal landscape!
Keep in mind that even once construction begins, you'll still be able to stay involved throughout the process. We welcome all of your questions throughout the design process — and know that by working together, we can create something incredible.
“My wife Pat and I finally selected The Cutting Edge probably because of the owner, Matt. He kept in touch with us while we decided on the right design for our front yard. Once the job started Matt stopped by to direct his crew numerous times. The Cutting Edge crew were fantastic and worked their tails off. Bottom line, go with Matt and The Cutting Edge.”
