After working as an Operations Manager for GreenThumb, Ian Reid was so impressed with what he saw that he decided to launch his own branch. So in 2006 he started the GreenThumb lawn treatment service in Worthing. And it has proved so successful that already he treats several hundred lawns in the area – and the number is rapidly growing!
Common problems he is called on to tackle include Leatherjackets – grubs that gorge on grass roots leaving ugly, bare patches -- and Red thread, a fungal disease. But Ian is well-equipped to tackle these and a host of other conditions that affect lawns in the region. His service also includes four pre-scheduled treatments a year to keep lawns looking healthy and weed-free whatever the season. And, remarkably, the professional expertise he provides costs less than D.I.Y lawn treatment products on sale in stores!
He believes it is the exceptional service and costs that have made GreenThumb the nation’s leading lawn treatment service. But, as Ian points out, even the experts are taken by surprise some times. He recalls: “We were carrying out a treatment on one customer’s lawn when a herd of cattle roamed in to investigate what we were doing. “They trampled all over the lawn and enjoyed the taste of the customer’s plants. “I had to put my farmer’s hat on and lead them out of the garden – my good deed for the day!”
