Kevin Cluley launched the Ashby branch of GreenThumb in 2004 in response to overwhelming demand from friends and family who were tired of buying products for their lawns that were ineffective and if not applied correctly caused damage. Today he and his team of four Lawn Operatives look after thousands of lawns in Ashby de la Zouch, Coalville, Melbourne, Breedon on the Hill, Chellaston Ibstock Markfield Swadlincote and all other surrounding areas.
The GreenThumb method is proven to bring out the full potential of your lawn all year round. Not content with being the first lawn treatment service in the UK. With 32 years of experience we continue to pioneer the very best there is in every aspect of lawn treatments, including lawn fertilisers.
Our fertilisers are tailored and manufactured to our specifications based on millions of lawn treatments every year. No one else – including any other lawn care provider – does this. Their fertilisers are ‘off the shelf’. Our lawn feeds are specially developed to be bespoke to UK lawns and just for our customers.
We pioneered ‘No Scorch Technology’ fertilisers more than 15 years ago. These fertilisers reduce the need for watering following a lawn treatment.
Today we offer a regular, balanced feeding programme for lawns with a flexible approach, giving you a bespoke treatment on every lawn, every time.
We only use selective herbicides (weedkillers) on your lawn, these will only address the weeds in your lawn and not affect the grass in any way.
All of our crewmen are fully qualified to spray these products, it is a legal requirement to hold the NPCT qualification, unlike many so called “Gardeners”. who are unqualified and will be buying products that you can buy from your local garden centre.
We have dedicated resources for the development and improvement of lawn treatments. We continue to work with leading fertiliser and plant nutritionists in the country to create the best lawn feeds, only for our customers.
We recommend 4 treatments throughout the year to help provide your lawn with all the nutrients it needs to be healthy and weed-free. Each of our treatments is like the seasons, a natural progression throughout the year providing the necessary nutrients the lawn needs. Whether it be bringing your lawn back to life in the spring, making it healthy and strong throughout the summer, or suppressing the moss in the winter months, we have it covered. We also recommend a yearly scarification and hollow-tine aeration which will allow your lawn to breathe, by removing the thatch in the lawn and removing thousands of cores across the lawn, allowing important air and water to flow into the lawn’s root system.
We also offer a range of treatments to help the lawn prevent any potential issues such as disease and pests. We are experts in dealing with these problems that customers may not be aware of; such as Red thread, Fusarium and many other fungal diseases.. As the best line of defence is in preventing these issues arising in the first place, we use our treatments to create a strong healthy lawn which will be much less likely to experience such diseases.
We also offer Direct Debit packages to spread your costs over the year Our “enhanced” program where you will save a massive 18% on your treatment costs and our basic program.
We are proud of our products and we work in partnership with our customers; they become part of the GreenThumb family. We offer a free lawn health check any time at no cost, to all current or potential customers and we will make ourselves available to answer any questions or concerns you have about your lawn. Call today for a free lawn health check and see how we can benefit your lawn.

Always prompt to agreed time and date. Our lawn has improved dramatically since having regular treatments. Staff always polite and helpful and explain fully what treatment is for.

Firstly, our lawns! Just over a year ago we got in touch with you to ask for your help with our lawns. They look absolutely amazing. We cannot believe that they have been brought back to life. We set up a direct debit and it was the best money we have spent! Thank you so much!!

The treatments are clearly explained in their leaflets and by the operatives. The work is carried out as arranged and it's easy to contact them by phone or by email. The results are clearly apparent by the appearance of my lawn.

Some time ago GreenThumb recommended that I switch to their enhanced package I was a little dubious at the time, but I needn’t of been as they have turned my weed patch into a proper lawn. I would definitely recommend the enhanced package as it is value for money.

Been coming for 18 months now and our lawn is now 100% better that it was workmen always friendly and polite.
