Keeping a low profile is not always bad; after all, Torrance consistently ranks among the safest cities in L.A. County while combining innovation and preservation, featuring the Toyota Museum and Western Museum of flight as well as the Madrona Marsh Preserve and Miramar Park among its many laid back attractions.

Advantages of Outdoor Lighting
Torrance, California residents as well as homeowners all across the state recognize several advantages produced by outdoor lighting. Cutting Edge Landscape Design identifies six of the most common reasons why California residents take advantage of the outdoor lighting innovations we provide.
We understand that you are busy and the time you have available in the outdoor escape, which your landscaping provides, has its limitations. However, outdoor lighting helps to remove those limitations, allowing you to enjoy your patio, pool, outdoor kitchen and the various elements of the of your backyard oasis instead of letting twilight steal your time.
Only half of a 24-hour day includes natural light for enjoying your landscaped beauty.
- Being able to enjoy the attractive features of your property after darkness falls allows you to highlight and enjoy its beauty during all hours of the day.
- Outdoor lighting also highlights and creates unique perspectives of various landscaped elements that might not appear during daylight hours, especially around terrace works and garden fountains.
Because it is a safe place to live, home values in Torrance are extremely competitive. You can keep pace with those around you with attractive landscaping features that add to curb appeal, but you can increase it even more through the installation of outdoor lighting. The innovative options available provide a cost-effective means to enhance your home's value.
The mild, Southern Cal climate allows residents to let down their hair, entertain guests and enjoy a backyard party throughout the year. It's not fun to send your guests home early when the party is just getting started. Outdoor lighting allows you to keep the party going long after the sun goes down. You might be tempted to keep it going until the sun comes up.
Though you might laugh when a cartoon character steps on a rake, it is anything but funny when it happens to you. Many backyard accidents happen whenever you are wandering around your yard in the dark. Proper outdoor lighting can limit potential nighttime accidents, keeping you, your family, or your guests safe in your yard.
Greater property security translates into keeping your family safer. By lighting up your property at night, you discourage shady individuals from prowling around in your yard. Even if an intruder trespasses on your property, outdoor lighting provides for clearer viewing, recording, and providing a description for the authorities.
Safety For Your Family And Guests
Outdoor lighting does not have to cost a fortune. In fact, innovative lighting technology makes it an affordable option even on a tight budget, allowing everyone to enjoy the benefits of landscape lighting. Cutting Edge Landscape Design uses a number of innovative technologies in their outdoor lighting designs, including:
- LED Lighting. The light emitting diode (LED) is one of the most exciting advancements in lighting technology, which is rapidly replacing traditional lighting due to its energy efficiency, increased longevity, and compact design features. Additional benefits of LEDs include their durability, safety, color rendering options, environmental versatility, and controllability. They also fit in well with the environmental preservation commitment of Torrance residents.
- Low Voltage Technology. Low voltage outdoor lighting keeps costs down while lighting up your home's landscaping features using just 30 volts. Your family and pets are safer, because it is cool to the touch and there are no worries of dangerous voltage levels. Low voltage technology integrates well with LED lighting too.
- Solar Lighting. Sunny Southern California is a great place to utilize this sustainable energy resource. Solar energy used in outdoor lighting eliminates the need for stringing up or burying wire all over your yard, also providing low-cost operation and limited maintenance. Solar powered lighting harmonizes with environmentally sensitive areas, and helps your SoCal home to build up green cred.
Cutting Edge uses these innovations as much as possible, but we also work with plenty of traditional lighting solutions, taking advantage of the most cost-efficient products available with an eye on cutting-edge technologies that have outdoor lighting potential.
