GreenThumb have been treating lawns for nearly 40 years, so we know a thing or two about how to look after your outdoor space. We know, for example, how slippery driveways, patios, and paths can get with algae, moss and the like. Plus, cleaning hard surfaces can freshen up your outdoor area, providing a welcoming space for family and guests. And, of course, we know how to deal with weeds.

Hard Surface Cleaner

Over time, driveways, patios, and paths can become green and slippery due to algae growth. Our cleaner effectively removes algae, controls moss, and reduces fungi and lichen*.

*Black lichen can be tough to remove. More than one treatment may be required.

Hard Surface Weed Control

With targeted spraying, we’ll control the weeds that appear in and between hard surfaces using a herbicide specifically approved for such applications.
