Phil Murphy is Green Thumb Lawns Inc.

As  a youth growing up in the Morningside area of Edina I was a very resourceful young man with a pocket that was always full of change.

In 1975, starting at about age twelve, I would buy old lawn mowers at the Morningside Community Church rummage sales, rebuild them and then set out with a "Phil's Green Thumb Lawn Service" flyer that my Mother, an avid water color artist and hobbyist orchid greenhouse grower, had created for me. 

All through high school I had many lawn mowing accounts in the Morningside and Country Club areas of Edina.  This always enabled me to build all of my go- carts and financed many a ski trip to local ski areas. 

Out of high school, I set out to conquer the world,  joined the Army, and as an Infantry Man, traveled to Europe for my tour of duty. 

I saw this as a great opportunity to get a free plane ticket to Europe so that I could Ski The Alps. 

When I got out of the military I worked for the Goodyear Tire Company as a salesman.  I also did a stint as a car salesman for the Walser Co.  I got to thinking,  'Boy I'm Sure Puttin In The Hours'. 

I was looking at a future that I was not prepared for.  I got to thinking about all the fun I had in high school and just exactly how it was that I was able to finance all of my projects.

In 1987 Green Thumb Lawns was re-born.  Since then we have expanded our lawn service to include irrigation, lawn renovation, landscape services, fertilization and weed control, snow services, and with  my mom, The Orchid Lady, we have gone into the retail floral business complete with greenhouses full of tropical blooming Orchid plants.
