Take care of that moss problem with GreenThumb

This far north, and after a wet summer, we are all looking at moss in the lawn. All the gardening programmes and magazines have been running advice features on how to scarify it out.

Local company GreenThumb, experts on this type of work, explain the options and what they will cost.

  • Rake it out by hand and put it in the garden waste. You will likely need multiple re-filling and emptying as the waste is horrendous. Cost: nil (apart from a series of visits to the orthopaedic department to sort your back, this is a hard job!).
  • Hire a heavy duty machine for the weekend, but beware, even more waste will come out, and it’s easy to plough the lawn if you don’t set up the machine correctly. Cost: £60-£80 approx.
  • Get help! There are a few hardy souls who will do this. GreenThumb is the largest lawncare company in Europe and locally, in the Moray Firth area, has over 1000 lawns to scarify this winter, all day every day. Cost (incl VAT): £60 (40m2) £80 (80m2), £90 (100m2).
