If your lawn is tired, full of weed and moss, then don’t worry, as help is on hand. Sisters, Sarah, and Jo, who run the award winning, Peterborough based, GreenThumb lawn care business, can soon get your lawn into great shape for summer. Here they answer some frequently asked questions.

Is my lawn beyond repair?

In most cases the answer is ‘no’ and even after our first visit, you’ll notice a huge difference!

How do I start with GreenThumb?

It’s simple, just contact us to arrange a free, no obligation, lawn analysis. We’ll do a thorough health check of your lawn, measure it up and let you know the price options. Prices depend on your lawn size and start at just £15 per treatment for a lawn that’s 40 square metres or less – cheaper than DIY and completely hassle free!

How frequently do you treat my lawn?

Our basic service provides four seasonal treatments, designed to give you a beautiful lawn throughout the year. Three of these are through the grass growing season and consist of a granular fertiliser to feed the lawn and a selective herbicide to control the weeds. The fourth treatment is applied through the darker, damper months of autumn/winter and this specifically tackles moss, whilst also helping to strengthen the lawn. Many of our customers also ask us to hollow-tine aerate and scarify their lawns annually and these mechanical treatments help to address the underlying causes of moss.

How does the service work?

It’s easy. We give you advance notice by phone, letter, email, or text when we’re due to come, but if the date isn’t convenient, we can always change it. We’ve got three technicians, Jim, Richard, and Dan, who apply the treatments and all of us hold the National Proficiency Training Council (NPTC) licence for the safe use of pesticides.

Do I have to be at home?

The majority of customers aren’t at home when we call. We’re totally self-sufficient and will carry out the treatment as long as we have access to your lawns.

Are the treatments safe for children?

Yes. We do recommend, however, that children (and cats and dogs) are kept off the lawn for 1-2 hours, to give any products that are applied time to dry.
