GreenThumb Doncaster East

Your Local Lawn Care Specialists

Welcome to GreenThumb Doncaster East

Providers of expert lawn care in the Doncaster East area.

Chris and Tess Potton have been running the Doncaster East branch since February 2009 and are able to boast that they provide professional lawn care for around 2400 customers. Their operating area incorporates Eastern Doncaster, Western Scunthorpe and includes Thorne, Finningley, Westwoodside, Epworth, Crowle, Messingham, Gainsborough and Kirton in Lindsey.

Josh, Tom, Jonathan and Jamie are the fully trained and uniformed lawn operatives who carry out our professional lawn treatments, while Elaine is on hand to deal with telephone enquiries and coordinate activities from the office.  We are a friendly and professional team who enjoy working together and transforming lawns throughout our area.  Our lawn operatives are interested in their work and we regularly exceed customer expectations.

Each customer receives regular, pre-arranged lawn treatments. They know  in advance when we will attend and our lawn operatives are always happy to discuss the lawn and offer advice on how to keep it in tip top condition.
Customer service is at the heart of what we do and if at any time customers have concerns about any aspect of their lawn, we encourage them to let us know.  We will very happily visit, free of charge, to offer advice on remedial action because we want our customers lawns to always look their best.

GreenThumb products are of the highest quality and are professionally applied in exactly the right quantities to give excellent results. This removes the need for you to handle chemicals and risk damaging your lawn, and the cost of our service compares very well with DIY.  Even customers who have professional gardeners choose to use us because our products are superior to those a gardener can usually get and our price is so reasonable.

Customers receive 5 pre-arranged treatments for their lawn each year.  In the spring we apply our temperature and moisture activated Spring Ready treatment followed in the early summer with our Summer Ready fertiliser and weedkiller.  Alongside the Summer Ready treatment we apply our Water Conserver and Seaweed Extract treatment (When soil gets very dry in summer months it will not easily absorb water and even a heavy summer downpour will run off to waste, but, our water conserver affects the soil so that any moisture is absorbed and if there is no rain, watering quantities are reduced).  In later summer we apply our Summer long treatment with its extra-long release fertiliser and weedkiller taking the lawn safely into autumn, and, in the autumn/winter we apply a treatment to control moss and nourish the lawn (This subdues the spread of moss and strengthens the grass to keep it healthy during the colder months). 

Moss thrives in cold damp locations and is most active in the winter months.  If allowed to thrive will choke the lawn.  Lawns are prone to get moss if they are in a shaded location or if they have excessive thatch (build-up of dead fibrous matter).  We encourage customers to cut back overhanging shrubs to keep the lawn as open as possible.  Our aeration and scarification treatments reduce thatch thereby minimizing moss and many of our customers now have annual aeration and scarification along with the regular treatments. 
There are three direct debit packages to choose from, details of which are on the website, and generous discounts are available.

We have other lawn products to help further improve the appearance of your lawns, such as stress beaters, growth regulators, fungicides, treatments for insect infestation and overseeding and top dressing.  We have had great success with our seed and top dress treatments which can transform a lawn.

Our growth regulator reduces the amount of vertical growth in the grass, reducing clippings and encouraging side shoots and root development.  It is usually applied to make life easier in the peak growing season and a side effect is that the lawn can become a little thicker and more drought tolerant.

Often lawns are affected by fungal infections that leave them looking brown, patchy and unpleasant when you most want to admire and enjoy them.  Our fungicide treatments help the lawn to recover from these infections so that the lawn can be enjoyed at its best.
If your lawn is past its best, full of weed grasses and patchy after years of use and enjoyment, then our ‘Lawn Makeover’ may be for you.  We are able to give you a new ‘GreenThumb’ lawn using our special mix of grass seeds.  This has produced some amazing results over recent years and given great customer satisfaction.

The first step to become a customer is to give us a call.  We will arrange to carry out a ‘Free, No Obligation’ Lawn Analysis to advise you of the price and the best package of treatments for your lawn. Prices are determined by the area of the lawn and our Direct Debit packages start from just £7.50 per month.  New customers are usually pleasantly surprised at our reasonable prices.

We are excited to announce that GreenThumb Doncaster East has pledged its support to the new Lawn Assured Standard from BASIS; an independent standard-setting and auditing organisation for the pesticide, fertiliser and allied industries, helping companies meet legal and regulatory requirements and adhere to best practice.
