The Story Behind Yard Dawgs Lawn Care Services

Beginning in 2014 Yard Dawgs started its adventure with two students purchasing an aerator and going door to door in Calgary, AB. They started with a simple motto:


“Integrity in everything we do”


The pair found that although their motivation was simple, it was not very common in their industry. They believed that employees should always be wearing uniforms, the truck should always be clean and decaled, the client should always know when the service will be happening, and the results should always be guaranteed and beautiful.

Immediately, people started to notice the difference between Yard Dawgs and other companies. These “small differences” really had a “big impact” as people were used to their lawn care companies being late, unprofessional, and the results unpredictable. They started asking Yard Dawgs to provide additional services. With each suggestion Yard Dawgs carefully researched, tested, narrowed down, and perfected the process to ensure they could confidently deliver top notch service for their customers. Rather than being a company that was keen to do everything, they zoned in and became industry leaders at the services they provide. Yard Dawgs is obsessed with creating the most effective, affordable, and sustainable ways to help people enjoy a beautiful summer.
