Lawn Care Treatments, Repairs and Maintenance Services in Inverness
Welcome to GreenThumb Inverness
Alastair Watt set up the Moray Firth franchise in 2006 after a 20 year career as a hospital manager, including 10 years at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, and has never looked back. He describes his area as “50 miles in any direction” from Inverness, it means treating lawns in several different climate zones – from the balmy ‘banana belt’ of the Moray coast to the freezing winters of Strathspey.
There are now 3 staff and the franchise treats 1,000 lawns. The biggest problem he is asked to tackle is moss, and is fully occupied in the winter months scarifying lawns. Interestingly though, in the Moray Firth area there is also a significant incidence of lichen, a scaly/silvery fungus which although little understood, can usually be eradicated by hollow-core tining, or aerating with a machine. Also common in damp climates is another fungal disease called red thread, a summer condition causing patches of lawn to turn brown and dried out looking.
The former hospital manager, who worked in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness, loves the area. He says: “Travelling around my territory is a delight as wildlife is everywhere. I often pull into a lay-by for my coffee and to watch the seals and dolphins. There can’t be many other territories where you can have all that, not to mention the magnificent scenery and the friendly people I meet''.

Frequently Asked Questions
When can I start using GreenThumb?
You can adopt our services at any time of the year. There is never a ‘bad time’ to start improving your lawn.
Do I have to be at home when you come and treat my lawn?
The majority of our customers are not at home when we call. Since all our vehicles and Lawn Operatives are self-sufficient, we can carry out your treatments as long as we have access to the lawns.
If you would prefer to be in when we are treating your lawn, we will do our best to accommodate your request.
I have children and /or pets. What should I be aware of?
We recommend that you keep off the lawn until any liquid part of the treatment has dried (approx. 2 hours). This stops it being walked off. And this is especially true of our NutraGreen Autumn Long Treatment, we recommend that you keep off the lawn for more than 2 hours then as it could stain a carpet or wooden floor, if it were walked into the home.
Grazing pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs should be kept off the lawn for a minimum of two weeks or three cuts, whichever occurs latest, to avoid ingestion of Ragwort, in particular, which becomes poisonous to them as it dies back.
Do I have to sign a contract?
No, we want our customers to continue with GreenThumb based on our merits in creating a healthier, greener lawn for them - not because they are stuck in a contract. Of course, with our treatment programmes, you will need to sign a Direct Debit Mandate with the relevant T&C's which relate to this payment option.
