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 16 staff with nine professionally qualified Lawn Operatives visiting over 6,000 lawns each year.

Over the last three 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".
