Our story


The beginnings of
Yard Dawgs


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

Starting out as “JL Lawn Care” March 2014 is when our business started!

James (left) was in his 1st year of business at U of C and Liam (right) was in his 1st year studying engineering at U of S. They decided to start a lawn care company that focuses on aerations for the summer, then back to school in the fall. 
 
The name “JL Lawn Care” only lasted a week as people kept mistaking it for sounding like “Jail Lawn Care”. So after an emergency brainstorming session on finding the right name, Yard Dawgs was born. 
 
Right away, people appreciated our commitment to professionalism, honest pricing, great workmanship and our attention to a excellent customer experience from start to finish.

With our first year off to a great start, many of our clients were delighted to have us back!

 This year started out with excitement as the partnership grew out of the old “family minivan” for their lawn care vehicle and they invested in their first truck. The main services offered at this time were lawn aeration, power raking and mowing. 
 
The plan was just to keep this lawn care company running during the summer, return the university in the Fall, and after graduation go out into the world and find a “real job”… You can probably guess where this is going.

Our clients loved the way we did our services and our commitment to an unmatched customer experience

Demand kept increasing for a variety of home services and we found ourselves, for better of worse, doing a wealth of home services now including landscaping and window washing. 
 
Things were getting busy, and our team has been growing! Having done many services at this point, we began focusing primarily on lawn care services including mowing, spring cleanups, and we just started focusing on fertilizer and weed control as a service as many of our customers were looking for a better alternative for their lawn care needs.

Why our services are set apart

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.
