Problem

 

Canadian Tire embarked on an initiative to reboot the Yardworks private label brand. As part of this initiative the category of outdoor watering was flagged as a key area for innovation.

Solution

 

The watering category was investigated through usability sessions and ethnographic research with consumers. Hose improvement along with a leak-free promise were identified as key areas for advancement. Swave developed a new hose product with dual handles and a leak-free gasket design.

Results

 

The Yardworks hose was launched in Spring 2016 and was supported by nationwide TV commercials.
