Green Thumb is dedicated to providing professional and knowledgeable lawn care services that create beautiful lawnscapes of which we can all be proud. We guarantee satisfaction! If the results of any application are not satisfactory, please call us. We’ll re-apply that application or refund the cost of that application.
We apply five main treatments as part of our annual program that include fertilizer, as well as weed, insect and grub control. Our lawn experts will check in on your lawn between treatments to make sure treatment applications have been effective and show the desired results. As a Green Thumb customer, your annual contract also gives you access to the knowledge and expertise of our technicians, who may recommend optional as-needed services such as a soil analysis, spot seeding, or lime treatment.

Your Rights & Responsibilities
Per DEC: “The property owner or owner’s agent may request the specified date or dates of the application(s) to be provided and, if so requested, the pesticide applicator or business must inform of the specific dates and include that date or dates in the contract.”
We need your help! Insect controls need to be watered in to be effective. We will leave the product label instructions for watering applied pesticides and you agree to assume this watering responsibility. Together, we will create a healthy green lawn.
This agreement will remain in force until the end of the calendar year. After the first season, you will receive notification of any price and date changes. Renewal of this contract must be verified in writing each spring. If not verified, service will be discontinued.
This contract may be cancelled in writing at any time by either the purchaser or the provider. On cancellation of service, any balance owed is immediately due and payable. If necessary, reasonable attorney fees will be paid by purchaser for collection of any balances.
