Green Thumb Annual Program
We are aware most customers hire a lawn service because they don’t have the time or the knowledge to manage lawn problems on their own. With Green Thumb, you get a highly trained, licensed specialist backed by a team with extensive knowledge and experience. Your Green Thumb specialist will apply all the components needed for a healthy, beautiful lawn and continually assess your lawn’s specific ongoing needs. However, we need your help by watering properly and mowing high.
Our Green Thumb program is virtually all inclusive. Our five lawn service visits include ten to twelve lawn applications based on your lawn’s needs. Your specialist will be assertive and proactive in curing and preventing any lawn problems. Periodically some lawns may need additional care such as lime, seeding, core-aeration, or flea and tick control. These services are available upon request.
Our Planned Lawn Services For The Season Include:
1. Spring – April 15 – May 31
Fertilization: Nitrogen for spring green-up and potash for root development. Pre-emergent crabgrass control. Broadleaf weed control as needed.

(Per DEC: the first 3 weeks are called ‘expected service dates’, the last 3 weeks are ‘alternate’ dates.)
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.”
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.
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 anytime 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.
