Simon Craig was introduced to the GreenThumb lawn treatment service by a childhood friend who ran a branch of the Nationwide Company.
He was so impressed with what he saw, that in 2004 Simon decided to quit his job at the Times & Sunday Times and launch GreenThumb Reigate. On the success of this branch in early 2007, Simon opened GreenThumb Sutton.
And since then he hasn't looked back. He and his team now look after over 3,500 customers' lawns within the east Surrey area.
Common lawn problems in the region are caused by unpredictable and low rainfall, and plenty of lawns with sandy sub-soils, which can lead to further Dry Patch issues. More recently, freezing winters have further hampered winter work.
Simon and his team are well equipped to tackle these obstacles, while their four times a year course treatments leave lawns looking pristine whatever the season. Added lawn enhancements such as Hollow-tine Aeration, Scarification, Water Conservers and Growth Regulators plus effective pest management all add to the portfolio of services Simon offers his customers.
Parts of Cheam, Purely and Sutton particularly struggle with the effects of Chafer Grub damage. This destructive pest can cause large areas of a lawn to be destroyed by bird/animal damage. Luckily with GreenThumb's preventative control for this pest, future problems are eliminated.
Above all, the expert service they provide costs less than D.I.Y products on sale in garden centres.
Says Simon: "My aim is to continue growing at a steady rate, the next target is over 4,000 customers."
And according to his customers, he is on the right track to do just that!
