GreenThumb says it plans to take on around 80 new workers in the region over the next three year to cope with increased demand for its services.
The firm, which is based in Denbighshire, North Wales, and has 15 branches in East Anglia, is expecting to grow by a quarter this year and next.
It already carries out feed and weed treatments on nearly 12,000 lawns in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex and predicts turnover will double by 2012.

Marketing manager David Collison said: “We've grown steadily year on year over the past two-and- a-half decades, but since the recession hit, our growth has accelerated dramatically. In fact, we have just recorded the most successful March in GreenThumb's history.

“People are deciding to improve their properties rather than move. If they're not going away so much in the slump they want to enjoy their gardens.”
The boom means GreenThumb is also seeking more franchisees to run regional branches.
The company treats common lawn problems such as moss, weeds and fungal diseases through a series of four prescheduled treatments a year.
