Entering is easy — just read the contest rules, complete the form below and share photos and video of your backyard!

Tips for a successful entry

• Take multiple photos. This helps us visualize how we might improve your outdoor living space. We need to see your full backyard to determine which area has the most potential!

Use wide angles. It’s tempting to focus on one area, but step backward and zoom out! Remember, we’re looking for a blank canvas to improve. We need to know if a paver patio will fit the space or complement your home.

Video isn’t required, but it is encouraged. Everyone has a camera on their phone or tablet, so just point, shoot and talk about your backyard. We don’t expect professionally recorded and edited video; just a helpful visual of you pointing out how you would change the space.

Show your personality! We love working with homeowners who are fun and enthusiastic about home improvement. Show us your personality in the entry text and video!

Relax. Nationally televised home improvement shows don’t have backyard makeover contests every day, but the last thing you should do is stress out about this entry! We want this process to be easy, fun, and (potentially) rewarding.
