2. The grass grows thickly in the garden.

3. The grass grows thin in the garden.
4. The grass grows thinly in the garden.
(Which expressions are correct and grammatical?)

Scroll down a bit and read all about the "multiple personalities" verbs!!

In both sentences, "thick" is a predicate adjective describing "grass."
