Green Man Lawn Care (formerly trading as Tom Thumb Lawn Care)

Tom ThumbCompany Overview

Our core service is a set of recurring seasonal lawn treatments carried out once every 10 weeks. At each visit, we apply a lawn fertiliser alongside a weed and/or moss control treatment. Following each treatment, we identify any additional problems and advise our customers how we can address them. Additional treatments are then carried out at a later date. Our customers can select an annual treatment plan and pay for their treatments monthly on a direct debit plan.

Led by Howard, Kate and Tom (below), Tom Thumb Lawn Care is a young, vibrant team with fresh ideas. We love a good natter and we'd love to tell you more so get in touch today!
