GreenThumb Wharfedale

Your Local Lawn Care Specialists

Welcome to GreenThumb Wharfedale

Providers of expert lawn care in the Wharfedale area.

The Wharfedale branch was started by Chris & Joanne Ducker and has been serving the Wharfedale area since 2008, with the aim of providing a first class, locally based service. 

The GreenThumb in Wharfedale team provide all the usual applications and winter machine treatments required to keep lawns in perfect condition all year, turning many “two-tone moss and weed” areas into lush and green lawns to be proud of. They are also able to tackle more unusual lawn problems such as Red Thread, a fungal disease that attacks lawns, and Leatherjackets, grubs that gorge on grass roots. But, above all, this GreenThumb expertise can cost LESS than the cost of D.I.Y products on sale in stores.

We are privileged to cover a beautiful part of the UK - the Wharfedale Valley -which starts in the northern precincts of Bradford and Leeds (areas such Baildon, Idle, Thackley, Shipley, and Horsforth).  Heading northwest takes us through the areas of Rawden and Yeadon, and then we start to enter an ever more rural region as we pass through Guiseley, Menston and Burley in Wharfedale. The river Wharfe then guides our path past the Victorian spa town of Ilkley, wending its way past Addingham towards the market town of Skipton. Finally, we reach into parts of the Yorkshire Dales National Park – one of the prettiest areas of the UK – covering villages such as Gargrave, Grassington and Malham.

We now have more than 1,300 customers and work hard to ensure that lawns are correctly treated throughout the year, whatever the weather! The focus on customer care and customer satisfaction must be working because the majority of that growth has come through recommendations from existing customers who are really pleased with the results and the way we work.

We are experts in lawn care, so if you have any questions or concerns about your lawn, how to look after it or how to get it looking really good, please call us on 01943 604956 or email us and we can arrange to provide you with a free, no obligation, lawn analysis report.

We are excited to announce that GreenThumb Wharfedale 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.

Ms Rice | Gargrave | 14/10/2020

Since starting with Green Thumb my lawn is so much greener and is now weed free.  I only wish I’d started years ago.

Wood | Horsforth | 14/10/2020

My lawn looks lush and green even the dandelions have gone!  You would think I’d have had a new lawn it looks so lovely and in such a short time.

Harry | West Yorkshire | 01/01/2019

I have used GreenThumb Wharfedale for over five years. Always on time, knowledgeable about their grass treatments and keen to put right if a treatment does not work. They have never let me down. Customer service like it used to be - hard to find these days.

Lesley | North Yorkshire | 12/11/2018

They managed to achieve the unachievable and transform a dying lawn to what looks like a carpet of green. Always quick and professional.

Jan | West Yorkshire | 12/10/2018

They did a good job. As always, I have always found them to be efficient and courteous. I have recommended them and new clients are also very happy with them.

William | West Yorkshire | 05/10/2018

Now downsized to much smaller garden. Grass overhung by trees in a very bad state - more moss than grass. After your visits, excellent re-growth of grass, no moss visible (yet)!

Jean | North Yorkshire | 19/09/2018

Very approachable staff, reliable service with good, sound advice. We have noticed a marked improvement in our lawn, and wouldn't hesitate in recommending GreenThumb

Peter | North Yorkshire | 05/09/2017

GreenThumb do wonders with our lawn, we've used them again and again.
