Denise, if the Green Thumbs guys are doing what the Lawnhopper guys did for my "lawn" in my previous house - you should be in for a pleasant surprise in a few months time.
'My' team basically turned up about every 3 months and did a feed / weed / moss treatment appropriate for the time of year and they came in to do a one-off scarify / aerate treatment. The lawn looked absolutely dreadful after that first treatment and also after the first moss treatment (about 40% went black!).
But I / they persisted and within a year they had turned around a muddy, weed infested, mossy patch with a bit of grass in it to a rather nice green carpet - not perfect but good enough for a country garden. Yes - I could have done the work myself but it was a large area and I know I would not have kept up the treatment regime. It also worked out cheaper to pay them to come and do it with bulk purchased chemicals than to do it myself with packets from the GC - so why would I? (and they always came back a couple of weeks later to make sure each treatment had worked with reapplication to areas where it was needed - free of charge).
I thought it was an excellent service and will be using them again when I've finished cutting borders and hard landscaping in the field I currently call a lawn.
