GREEN THUMB [green thumb]
Natural talent for growing plants.
THINK GREEN Curb Appeal Matters

A Premier Albuquerque/Rio Rancho Lawn Care Company Since 1994

Locally Owned and Operated, employing local workers and keeping the money here in New Mexico!

Jeff Anderson (Owner, Crew Manager) started the company in 1994, after working for several plumbing and landscaping companies located in Albuquerque NM, he felt he could provide better and personalized customer service on his own and develop a great rapport with his customers. Jeff has many customers who have been with him for over 20 years, that speaks to the level of quality and belief in personalized customer service he provides. The lawn care maintenance and grounds keeping he provides to his customers, speaks to his pride of work and to provide the customer service he believes his homeowners want and deserve.

Ernest Padilla (Co-Owner, Operations Manager), has worked in the background of Green Thumb for many years but will now assist Jeff full time in expansion of the company.  Ernest spent 18 years at Fidelity National Title Ins. Co. in a Sales Exec. position for 10 years and Sales Manager, Vice President for the last 8 years. In his role he worked with the NM Real Estate community (primarily Realtors and Lenders) to market and expand their business.  Ernest managed the Sales department and generated over 12 million dollars annually in Escrow and Title Insurance sales. He hopes to use what he learned and relationships he developed over the past 18 years and apply it to an expanding company.


The next phase in the Green Thumb brand, will be to utilize our many working relationships with Real Estate professionals to partner with them on the importance of “Curb Appeal” to their Sellers, which in-turn will increase their business profile and improve the homeowners return on their investment. Green Thumb's customer portfolio consists of 50% residential accounts, and the other 50% consists of Homeowner Associations and Commercial accounts. Green Thumb understands that everyone’s needs are different, and provides flexible solutions to every client, the customer service provided is second to none. Green Thumb is responsive to client concerns, immediately offering solutions when needed. They understand that communication is key in any successful business and pride themselves on continuously improving the business of lawn care maintenance and landscaping.

When you have a landscaper for more than 10 years of weekly work, I believe consumers should take notice. We are a community of 52 residences that has employed Jeff Anderson to care for our landscaping needs from mowing and trimming to repair and installation. The operation word in this scenario is "care." Anyone who wishes to employ someone who really cares about their customers, should think of Green Thumb. Imagine having to satisfy 52 clients each week. This is the task Jeff faces on a regular basis. I have appreciated the many "extras" Jeff completes for our older residents. I can’t thank him often enough.
