Cutting Edge Landscape & Design was initially created by Nick Williams as a maintenance business. Using his father’s 1978 ford truck and a donated lawn mower, Nick went door to door in an effort to gain maintenance clients. After his first day, Cutting Edge had its first three clients. In the following months, the list of clients grew steadily. After reaching nearly 30 clients, Cutting Edge underwent a change.
Nick finished his Elementary Teaching Masters Degree at University of Oregon and was offered a job teaching 1st grade in Creswell. After talking the teaching job, it was clear that continuing the maintenance business was not practical. After talking with friends, Nick heard that his friend Justin Kayser was starting his own business called JJ’s Landscape Maintenance. A few days later Nick called Justin and asked if he would be willing to take on a few more clients. Without hesitation, Justin agreed to take on the new accounts.
