About Us

Our Approach

Quality service enhanced with expertise: That’s what makes us the best! Green Thumb Lawn Care has been locally owned and operated by John Knutson since 1983. Beginning in Schenectady, NY, our service now spans across the entire Capital District, with an additional branch in Syracuse. Our Mission Statement is simple: “We strive to create enthusiastic customers.”

Our year-round service provides all the care necessary to grow a thick, green, and healthy lawn. Although many lawns in the area face similar concerns, we understand that each lawn is unique, thus your program will be tailored specifically to fit your lawn`s needs.  In general, we treat a customer`s lawn 5 times each year with a balanced fertilization.  Along with these treatments, crabgrass, weed, and insect controls are applied in preventative and curative measures as necessary.  Grub control is also included at no additional charge.  Green Thumb uses a mix of both liquid weed controls and granular fertilizers in order to achieve maximum results. Additional service calls are free!  And unlike many other companies, we do our very best to stay proactive with any concerns that may arise. Often, we will stop by just to check up on the progress of your lawn and ensure that our treatments have been effective.  Of course, you still see the lawn more often than we do, so if you see something you don`t like, or if you have questions, make sure to contact us right away!
