GreenThumb South Downs

Your Local Lawn Care Specialists

Welcome to GreenThumb South Downs

Providers of expert lawn care in the South Downs area.

At GreenThumb South Downs we are, to put it simply, a little bit obsessed with good lawns. It’s our passion. It’s why we do what we do. It’s why we have so many happy customers who have been with us for so many years.

We didn’t start off as GreenThumb South Downs though. Oh no. Once upon a time we were three very separate GreenThumb branches operating very separately from one another. As of course happens over time, those of us who cared the most were keen to spread our outstanding service to as many customers as possible, which meant bringing more together under the one big umbrella.

In 2020 we brought together three existing branches; namely Southeast Hampshire, Central Hampshire and Chichester to form GreenThumb South Downs. Covering an area of outstanding natural beauty and immersed in the South Downs National Park, our Admin Hub is based in Lavant, a beautiful village just north of Chichester, and our main depot works out of Rowlands Castle. We follow the south coast from Eastleigh in Hampshire through to East Preston in West Sussex, and inland we cover Winchester to Petersfield, then on to Petworth, Puborough and beyond.

Throughout this area we experience different soils, many of which suffer from drying coastal winds and drought conditions over the summer months, whilst others can get rather boggy with just the slightest drop of rain.

Luckily, here at GreenThumb, whether you have a compacted lawn, a moss haven, a dry desert or have found those pesky leatherjackets feasting on your lawn, we have the expertise, tools and superior products that can save any lawn out there. You won't find our bespoke products in a DIY store, just in case you were wondering!

With our team of fully NPTC qualified Lawn Operatives there is no compromise in the quality of products we apply to the lawns. We specialise in beautiful lawns and happy customers.

We are excited to announce that GreenThumb South Down 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.

Compliment from Mrs Homer- Jack Donovan Was lovely and polite, a real credit to you! 

Mrs Homer | Bognor Regis | 14/10/2020

Just wanted to give some positive feedback from my treatment yesterday by Jack
Good thorough job and a very pleasant person to boot
Would be happy with him doing our treatments any time
Thanks for fitting us in so promptly

Stanley Taylor | Bishops Waltham | 14/10/2020

My lawn was decimated by leather jacket so we had to start from scratch and Greenthumb went to work. Nathan was very polite and worked hard transforming my lawn from dust to as lush thick green Lawn in a matter of just a few weeks. It grew a lot faster and thicker than I had expected having previously always used turf. I cannot recommend Nathan and the Chichester Branch highly enough. Great job and thank you for a job well done and all the advice along the way

J Martello | East Preston | 10/09/2020

Very impressed with the service, Dan Austin is very quick and considerate.

Mr Steels | Eastleigh | 07/08/2020

I would like to thank you for all the work you have done over the 10 or so years we have been using you. We have been very satisfied with the service provided.

Ms Parslow | Hampshire | 07/08/2020

I am very happy with our service and the efficiency of Tony Critchley yesterday during his treatment of my lawn.

Mr Brooks | Bognor Regis | 07/08/2020

"Thank you for helping my lawn survive.  After constant building work, covered by sand and rubble, our lawn suffered greatly. Once we had completed the renovations we thought we would have to re-turf our sad lawn. However, with a visit from GreenThumb all was not lost.  With regular maintenance our lawn was back to its former glory, I would never consider missing a treatment as our lawn has never looked this good."

Mrs P Kelly | 26/09/2014

"When my neighbour's lawns turned brown, my lawn which I had had treated with GreenThumb's Oasis Treatment, was green throughout the summer and I didn't need to water it at all. People often stop and comment on how nice my grass looks."

Mr S T | 26/09/2014

"I had an Oasis Treatment before leaving to go to the USA for 3 weeks. On my return, despite no rain falling, I was amazed to discover that my back lawn was the greenest in the area by a mile!"

Mr P R | 26/09/2014
