New Brunswick’s Experts in Eco-Friendly Lawn Care
Welcome to Grass Catchers

The Value of Being Eco-Conscious
We believe in taking good care of the earth, reducing the amount of hazardous chemicals that get into our water supply, and encouraging the natural, healthy growth of Canada’s world-famous beauty. Using more sustainable solutions is not only more effective — it’s a great way to be a good neighbour. Check out our Lawn Care Services to see how our approach to lawn care is as friendly to the environment as it is to your grass.
We like to think of ourselves as tree huggers. (Well, mostly because hugging grass is hard. We’ve tried.)
Learning the Lingo
We know that most of the technical terms of lawn care are, frankly, boring. However, our goal is for you to feel empowered, not intimidated, when it comes to knowing what’s happening right outside your door as each season goes by. It’s important to know the basics in order to feel confident in the services we provide you, and to successfully care for your lawn in between our visits.
That’s why throughout our site, you’ll see two versions of the definitions of the terms you need to know.• Simply Stated — This is your “layman’s terms” translation; quick and easy to understand.
• Scientific Shoptalk — For you budding scientists out there, this is the more technical (but still abbreviated) explanation.
Still not sure what something means, or why it’s important? Just ask us!
When we started our company, we dedicated three years to becoming accredited through Plant Health Atlantic, a non-profit accreditation board dedicated to regulating environmentally sustainable turf management. Plant Health Atlantic offers government-approved IPM Certification and Accreditation turf management programs for the Atlantic Region.
We conduct a yearly audit with Plant Health Atlantic, ensuring that not only is our accreditation status valid, but that we are continuing to utilize the latest scientific advances in IPM (Integrated Pest Management)
Grass Catchers Eco Care currently meets the New Brunswick Environment requirements for being officially enrolled in an approved IPM Accreditation Program. This achievement, combined with other legislated requirements under the NB Pesticides Control Act and regulations, qualifies us to purchase and apply Commercial Class lawn care pesticides in New Brunswick.
So, in a nutshell, we’ve done all the legal and scientific work necessary, so you never have to worry about the treatments we use on your property.
We are proud members of Landscape New Brunswick. Our participation in this professional association is another way that we stay informed on the latest and greatest advances in our industry through training, professional development, and environmental stewardship.

Bringing You the Best Lawn Care in New Brunswick
When we first decided to bring organic lawn care to Saint John, Rothesay, Quispamsis, and the southern NB area, we knew that earning your business would mean taking our lawn maintenance service options to the next level. That’s why not only do we aim to provide you with the best results for a greener lawn, we ensure that your service experience is second to none.
Invasion of the Lawn Snatchers?
Not on our watch. Insect invasions are as gross as they sound, so getting the right protection for your yard is paramount. Without grub treatment, those little monsters can wreak havoc on your yard by launching a full-blown grub invasion. Sometimes, they even invite their friends…the bugs we all love to hate…cinch bugs. Protection from chinch bugs and the like is essential to healthy grass. Whether you live in Rothesay, Saint John, or Quispamsis, you’ll be glad you added spot pest control to your lawn care services.
A Winning Combo: Slice Seeding with Aeration, Followed by Overseeding
A total lawn renovation is expensive, even in somewhere as green as New Brunswick. That’s why we recommend slice seeding (also called slit seeding) with aeration. This method, followed by overseeding a few weeks later, costs just pennies on the dollar compared to the cost of hydroseeding or re-sodding a lawn. All you have to do is keep up with your watering (we recommend a water timer) and even dealing with a drought won’t stop the good things from growing.
Why is Organic, Pesticide-free Lawn Care the Best Choice?
Your lawn is actually its own ecosystem. The proper application of Integrated Pest
Management (IPM) methods, including fertilizer application, is the best way to make that ecosystem a healthy one. This is because encouraging grass growth that resists weeds naturally is the goal of IPM — and it goes beyond traditional weed control approaches. This sustainable method of weed control can resist even the most common weeds, like dandelions.
The integrated component of IPM also allows us to avoid traditional pest control methods. In our lawn maintenance programs we use low toxic pest control along with the other components of IPM, which results in healthy soil…which that leads to stronger, greener lawns.
Beautifying Southern New Brunswick Together
Our goal is to make your lawn something that you can not only be proud of, but that adds to the beauty of our communities. Even if your yard isn’t within view of Saint John’s picturesque Cable Ferries Route, it will be so green that your neighbours will think it should be. In fact, our methods are so effective that your grass just might become one of those green spaces that Rothesay is known for!
Hey There, Neighbour!
Our team here at Grass Catchers really cares about the southern New Brunswick community, because we live here, too! We love getting to know our neighbours and working together to make a greener planet.
