After working as a Business Account Manager for a major UK bank, Eifion Jones decided it was time to invest in himself. So after careful research, in 2002 he took over the GreenThumb Lawn Treatment Service for Liverpool, which covers Formby and Southport and judging by the way the business has grown, it was a wise investment!
For now he and his team of 13 have become the first branch to treat over 10,000 lawns throughout the region every year. Although it can be quite a challenge as coastal areas, Formby and Southport have sandy soil, so in the summer water retention is an issue and without care the lawns become straw-like. Leatherjackets – grubs that gorge on grass roots – and Red thread, a fungal disease, can also pose problems but Eifion and his team can tackle all these conditions. While their four times a year course of treatments leaves lawns look pristine whatever the season and, above all, the professional service they provide costs less than DIY products on sale in stores!
Eifion explains how he came to take over the GreenThumb branch: “I was approached by the previous owner and felt it was too good an opportunity to turn down. I was impressed with the concept of lawn treatments. My aim is to continue to enjoy running the business and provide a first class, quality service.” And according to his customers, he’s doing just that!
"All the staff are excellent – we are very satisfied customers"
"My lawns look the best ever - thank you."
