Many residents love the central location of Los Alamitos, taking advantage of its proximity to urban centers, beachfront relaxation, and world-class entertainment.

Creating the Perfect Property: What Does Outdoor Living Mean to You?
The climate here in Los Alamitos — with an incredible 283 sunny days per year — makes it a perfect location to embrace outdoor living. In essence, the concept of outdoor living means that you open up your perception of home to include your yard, lawn, patio, and deck. By doing so, you'll expand your options for year-round outdoor enjoyment and entertainment. But what does outdoor living mean to you?
Do you love the idea of a sparkling blue pool to cool you off on a warm summer day? Maybe you have always envisioned working on your golf game from the comfort of your home. If you love the idea of having friends, family, and guests come over to enjoy a communal meal outside, you've probably dreamed of a fully-outfitted outdoor kitchen.

Entertain with an Outdoor Kitchen
Picture this: after a long day, you come home to cook a meal for your family. It's sunny and warm outside, with a slight breeze, and you don't want to waste the amazing weather by making a meal indoors. Now picture your perfect outdoor kitchen, customized to suit your needs and optimized to provide all the convenience of an indoor kitchen — but with easier cleanup. With an outdoor kitchen, you can incorporate anything you need to make it perfect:
- Built-in gas grill
- Ample counter space for preparation
- Storage space for utensils
- Mini-fridge for food and beverage supplies
- Sink for easy, streamlined clean-up
Your perfect outdoor kitchen will soon become a favorite gathering space for the whole family (and the envy of your neighborhood!).
Putting Green Installation: Work on your Game from Home
If golfing is your passion — or simply a hobby you can't get enough of — then a custom-designed putting green would be an amazing addition to your property! Whether you want to practice your stroke, invite your friends over for a friendly challenge, or teach some of your family members the finer points of golf, an at-home putting green makes it all possible.
We will work with you to design an optimally shaped and sized putting green that will not only offer you hours of entertainment — but add a beautiful splash of green and an unmistakable refinement to your property.
Enjoy Refreshing Pool Landscaping and Water Features
Don't want to leave your Los Alamitos home to go swimming? With custom pool landscaping, you won't have to go far. We can construct sparkling, turquoise pools that flow seamlessly with the rest of your property. Your friends and family will enjoy hours of entertainment, and you'll be able to cool off on a warm day. When creating perfect pool landscaping, think about the following elements:
- Custom patios near the pool that will create a safer area to lounge and walk
- Addition of elements like saunas, spas, and jacuzzis that increase year-round enjoyment of your pool landscaping
- Streamlined addition of other landscaping elements — xeriscaping, native plant landscaping, etc. — to highlight the pool design
The sky's the limit when it comes to pool landscaping and water features on your Los Alamitos property. At Cutting Edge, we can create a tranquil customized oasis — right in your backyard.
Gather around a Gas Fire Pit When the Sun Goes Down
Toasted marshmallows. Quiet conversation. Warm hands on a cool evening. There's nothing like an outdoor gas fire pit for creating a sense of community, optimizing the sunset hours, and treating your friends to a relaxing experience.
At Cutting Edge, we create gas fire pits with safety and efficiency in mind. Our designs and guidance ensure that your fire pit stays safe, contained, and well-maintained.
Create Ambient Outdoor Lighting for All Day Enjoyment
Here is Los Alamitos, the sunset doesn't necessarily mean the end of the day. With balmy nights in the summer and cool evenings in the winter, you might find yourself aching to take a dip in the Jacuzzi once the sun has set. Or perhaps you love the idea of being able to entertain far past dusk and enjoy a pleasant evening outdoors with friends and family.
Whatever the case, outdoor lighting is an important aspect of safety and security. Prevent trips, falls, and confusion with stately and custom-designed outdoor lighting that provides a cheering ambiance to your outdoor spaces. In addition to the safety element, outdoor lighting contributes to the overall beauty and elegance of your property.
Bringing it All Together
When we design landscapes, we always consider the property as a whole. How will a well-placed patio create a neat, dry setting near your pool? How do elements like walkways and staircases bring it all together? By designing with these elements in mind, we create a landscape that's so much more than just the sum of its parts — instead, it's a unique, cohesive outdoor living space that will offer years of delight, enjoyment, and luxury.

“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.”
