Fertilization Services

At Blade Cutters we listen to our customers – so when you told us you wanted a high quality, comprehensive lawn treatment program, we responded and developed the Total Turf Management (TTM) division of our company. TTM offers the finest, most complete lawn care program available anywhere.

Using time tested techniques and state of the art equipment, our specialists apply high-end, golf course grade lawn fertilizers, weed controls, and other products to produce the lawn you’ve always wanted! From lawn spraying to tree and shrub care, TTM is the service you’ve been waiting for.

The Total Turf Management program consists of six specially developed and seasonally scheduled service visits. Your applications will include a well-balanced mixture of fertilizer, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides (think grub control!).

Our program is based on research, training and recommendations from the Purdue University Horticulture Program and is specifically customized for our region. Please view our six step program and then give us a call to get started! We also have modified three, four and five step programs available for our budget conscious consumers.
