GreenThumb Shropshire

Your Local Lawn Care Specialists

Welcome to GreenThumb Shropshire

Providers of expert lawn care in the Shropshire area.

Since taking over the Shropshire Franchise in 2002, husband and wife team, Ian and Jacqui Balmforth, have enjoyed a resounding success in growing their business.

GreenThumb Shropshire now has a team of 13 staff with seven professionally qualified Lawn Operatives visiting over 6,000 lawns each year.

Over the last few years there has been a rise in problems associated with dry weather and especially the lack of rainfall. Moss is also a common feature on the lawns in this area, but the team are well-equipped to tackle these problems and more besides.

In dry conditions a major problem with drought stricken lawns is the development of 'dry patch'. This can be treated by aerating the lawn followed by the application of our specialist water conserver treatment - Oasis Treatment Programme. However, if applied before the lawns dry out, this programme will reduce the amount of water needed to maintain a nice green lawn.

Ian Balmforth states: "We grow our business by recommendations from customers who have been impressed by our service and the results we achieve.

We pride ourselves on the high level of care our customers receive from us.

Our new customers are surprised at how little the GreenThumb lawn treatments cost - often less than treating the lawns themselves. With the introduction of our Direct Debit Lawn Treatment Packages we feel sure that we are able to offer our customers greater service and flexibility".

We are excited to announce that GreenThumb Shropshire 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.

My Green Thumb review!

My lawn was looking awful, Happy?, I was not
Moss and Yellow patches, weeds, it had the lot
A simple course of action, a great lawn was my aim
Nothing that I seemed to do, the lawn it stayed the same

Time to get in expert help, I called the Green Thumb Team
Can I have a lovely lawn?, it can't be just a dream
After a lawn analysis, a plan was put in place
Bringing my lawn back to life, to put a smile back on my face

Off came the Thatch, a weed and feed, it really had begun
It seemed at last, a plan that worked, the weeds were on the run
The Chafer Grubs have left me with their Leather Jackets on
No more eating my Grass Roots, they really have all gone

Soon the Moss had blackened, Yellow had turned to Green
No longer a lawn to hide away, but one that should be seen
The mower is now so happy, it's blades cut neat and true
Simply because, my lovely lawn, is courtesy of you.

Mr Bain | 12/02/2020

I would like to place on record my thanks for the superb manner in which your company has looked after my lawns throughout the current year. I have never seen them looking better and the attention to detail and level of customer care shown by all your staff has been outstanding. Thank you once again
