Our Story - How Dew was created and why we love lawns


Proudly Canadian owned and operated

Our History
Our roots are precision agriculture. We’ve spent decades studying the art and science of growing things in Canada. We’re experts in plant nutrition and passionate about the sustainable future of both Canada’s food supply and our urban landscape.
Our Why
We believe in the home. We believe your outdoor space is your little piece of Canadian nature to preserve and protect. Healthy urban lawns and trees are good for the environment and good for mental and physical health. Traditional DIY lawn care can be wasteful and toxic. We knew there must be a better way.
Our Science
During the 2020 lockdowns, the Dew lawn science team got to work. Learning from decades of agriculture and lawn care expertise, we built Canada’s first and only detailed residential lawn soil database, the Dew Individual lawn Research Tool, D.I.R.T. (seriously). The database is continually updated and gets smarter over time. The results? Lawn care is now easier for you and way better for the environment.
Lawns are good
Well maintained turf looks great, adds curb appeal, and is good for the environment. The right nutrient and seed program will help your lawn build resilience against drought, diseases, and insect pressures. At Dew, we celebrate and love the Canadian lawn every day (we’re actually a bit obsessive about it).
Traditional DIY lawn care is broken
The big box store experience- row after row of massive bags of lawn chemicals from huge national brands. An entire section of confusing liquid chemicals. The experience is awful-and you haven’t even made it out of the parking lot yet. At home the stress continues- how much should you apply? How? What about the leftover amounts? How toxic to my kids and pets IS this stuff?
The future is free (pesticide and waste)
Customization and precision are the future. By precisely measuring your lawn using the latest GPS tech, we’ll only send you exactly what you need when you need it. No guesswork. No waste. Use it all then compost or recycle the packaging. No storing any chemicals. No guesswork. A Dew lawn is also a pesticide free lawn. Keeping your lawn healthy is the key to making it more resistant to weed invasion. Awesome fact: Dew lawns in Canada this year will save over one thousand litres of pesticide from entering the environment. Now we’re talking!

We really wanted to find a solution for our property that was better for the environment and didn’t leave us with tons of leftovers. It was the perfect amount for our lawn and the improvement is amazing!!

I couldn’t believe how easy the process was! My lawn has been a bit of an embarrassment for a while, but See Spot Go! worked so well, I couldn’t believe how quickly the spots started filling it.

After a long and cold winter, the custom Dew nutrients brought my lawn back to a beautiful vibrant green in no time. The best part is there is no waste! Everything can be recycled or composted.
