Running a highly successful Lawn Treatment Service means watching the tide times for Iain Wharton.
In 2002 he launched the GreenThumb business covering the Borders territory where his customers include inhabitants of Holy Island and to reach them Iain has to cross the causeway – which he can only do at low tide. He says: “It might be a little unusual – but it’s all part of our aim to provide an excellent customer service.”
Common problems Iain and his team have to treat throughout the region include moss control and Leatherjackets, the grubs that eat grass roots. But the treatments they carry out, for more than 1,000 customers every year, return the lawns to a perfect condition. Regular visits keep the grass looking lush throughout the year.
Above all, their expert service and advice costs less than their customers would pay if they bought lawn treatment materials in a D.I.Y store! “We are running a very successful growing business,” Iain explains. “It’s an excellent product.” And his customers agree!
"You really have transformed my garden, an excellent example for new clients I would think!"
