Welcome to GreenThumb Newcastle

GreenThumb Newcastle is run by Michael Parkin and his team, we look after thousands of lawns in Newcastle and Northumberland, keeping them lush and weed-free.

Throughout the growing season each lawn receives four pre-scheduled treatments to keep the grass looking good. Our customers actually pay less than it would cost to buy the materials from a D.I.Y store to do the job themselves. 

Our Lawn advisers are skilled and have many years of experience dealing with lawn problems that affect grass in the Newcastle and Northumberland areas.

There has been a big change in climate conditions in recent years that cause problems such as:

  • Red Thread, a viral fungus that attacks the lawn
  • Moss, a big problem everywhere at the moment due to the extended wet weather
  • Dry patch, where the grass dies back due to a lack of moisture, a particular problem in clay soil areas.

Fortunately our expert team are well equipped to tackle these common lawn problems.

Red Thread
The first signs of infestation would be brown patches of decaying grass. Upon close inspection very fine pink needles can be identified. Red Thread is a Symptom of high humidity or low fertility, it is advisable for our customers to receive their regular fertiliser treatments. However, if the problem persists due to humid conditions we can apply a fungicide treatment 2-3 weeks after the weed and feed is applied.

Moss thrives in damp and shady areas; lawns usually affected are those with heavy surface thatch or clay soil. Raking will only remove dead moss, it will not cure it. Moss Control is included in the autumn/winter seasonal treatment. It works by dehydrating the Moss, turning it black and bringing it under control.

Scarification is a rigorous and thorough operation to remove surface thatch; its main objective is not moss removal, but the removal of the cause of Moss.

Hollow-tine Aeration
This treatment reduces compaction and thins out the layer of sub-surface thatch. The process removes thousands of small cores from the surface of the lawn. This will then allow nutrients, water and oxygen to reach the root zone, which speeds up the improvement of the lawn. In dry conditions a major problem with lawns not watered regularly is dry patch: This can be treated by aerating the lawn followed by our specialist water conserver treatments.

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.
