A pool is a great place to relax, but if you want a swimming pool that transcends mere functionality and becomes a true work of art, this is the team that can elevate your pool experience to new levels. 

“We love building pools and we’re passionate about it,” says co-owner Adam Showell. 

Cutting Edge Pools and Landscaping has been dazzling southern Utah for the past 25 years. “We’ve been around a long time and we’re one of the biggest and best in the state,” says co-owner Josh Allred. “We’re bonded and insured and we’ll be there if you have any issues.” Although their expertise lies in luxury residential pools, they also handle a diverse range of projects including complex commercial pools, small VRBO projects, standard residential, lazy rivers, waterslides and landscaping.

Whether you’re building a new pool, refurbishing an existing one or adding a water feature with faux rocks, Cutting Edge has an in-house design team to help. They’ll draft a 3D design to make sure it’s exactly what you want. “Adam is a creative genius and I’m mechanically minded,” says Allred. “We collaborate to bring everything together and ensure success. Pools are not just our profession; they are our passion and way of life.”

“We love unique and different. We’re always on the lookout for new products, new ideas and new concepts. We spend a lot of time researching and traveling to find different features. We love making water do what it doesn’t naturally do.”

– Josh Allred, Co-Owner

What are you best known for?

High-quality pools that look amazing. We like a good challenge. It’s fun to come up with solutions to transform wild ideas into reality. It’s not just a pool, it’s an experience. Small, colorful LED lights with dimmers add sparkle. Integrate a sound system to sync with the lights and you’ve got a spectacular water feature. 

What’s new and noteworthy?

There are so many upcoming innovations in the pool industry like highly efficient pumps, innovative lighting choices and new products that replace plaster and concrete. For example, one product has a sand finish. It’s rigid and solid, so it rolls underneath, up the sides and on the deck for a seamless look.
