Ryan and his team completely transformed my dirt backyard into something spectacular. He added adequate drainage to my backyard which now flows into the front of the house on both sides. He even tied the rain gutter into the drainage system. The job entailed drains, gravel, sod grass and a drip water system along the perimeter of the yard for future plants. From the jump, Ryan was responsive and arrived to the first consultation on time, friendly, personable and knowledgeable. The process in between of answering all my questions via text message to project completion was so easy and painless for me. He was always responsive and helpful. He offers huge value in the professional of his business, pricing and overall work quality. I am blown away with the completed backyard and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the transformation. I plan to hire Ryan again in the future to work on my front yard. I highly recommend him!

Ryan, Eddie and the entire crew were a great team to work with! We started a project not really knowing what we wanted. We were, admittedly, challenging customers! My elderly parents needed a lot of patience and explanations and often changed their minds or added things at the last minute. Ryan was very patient and made sure we were happy with everything. We will use them again for our next project, it seems there isn’t anything they can’t do and do VERY well!

Ryan and his team did an incredible job on my landscaping. Front and backyard. I waited a long time to get the landscaping done because of the drought. Decided we were never going to be out of a drought and went ahead and did my landscaping. Ryan and the guys were so professional, kind hard-working and very artistic. My pavers look amazing my grass and walls around the planter are so beautiful I am living my dream thanks to this team. I recommend them to anybody who is on a tight budget and wants quality work. They are the best! Thank you so much Ryan tell the guys I send my love. When I figure out how to post photos I will add them to this review.🙏

We're so happy with our decision to have Cutting Edge do the landscaping for our new home. We recently moved into a new home, and being new to the area we didn't have any referrals for good landscaping companies. So I tried Thumbtack for the first time, and came across Ryan & Cutting Edge. They had great reviews so I decided to give them a try. When Ryan came out to give us a quote, we didn't know exactly what we wanted to do with the yard. I thought Ryan was professional yet personable, and I particularly appreciated his transparency (like we might want to go with a different brand of sod to save some money). He gave us options but never tried to push us in any direction. As we contemplated what we wanted to do, Ryan was very flexible in presenting different options and helping us make the most of our budget. In the end, the Cutting Edge team did a complete overhaul of our original sprinkler system, added a new sprinkler timer, installed new sod in our front and back yards (including killing old grass, soil prep, grading, etc), planted a tree, installed decompressed granite on our side yard, and installed new uplighting in the front and back yards. The quality of work is outstanding. The difference it has made to the look and feel of our new home is worth well beyond what we paid for it. Ryan was a pleasure to work with, and his whole team were punctual, professional, and hard-working (they moved quick!) I would absolutely recommend Cutting Edge for any landscaping projects. Thanks again Ryan.

Details: Residential • Large (5,000 - 10,000 sq ft) • Installed onto bare soil • No clearing needed prior to sod installation • I need the pro to provide the sod
