The History of GreenThumb

Founder and CEO, Stephen Waring, started GreenThumb after experiencing the lawn treatment service in the United States in 1985. He saw great potential for a similar service in the United Kingdom, and GreenThumb was born on 1 April 1986, on the North Wales coast.

Stephen started out with 1,000 leaflets and the commitment to create a customer-focused business. The response was fantastic and today there are over 220 GreenThumb operations across the UK, from the Isle of Wight to Inverness in Scotland, servicing over 450,000 lawns every 10 weeks.

Most GreenThumb franchises around the country are operated by local families, in keeping with our goal to provide the best possible personal service to all our customers.
