Wes Holloman of Pearland, Texas, was the winner of our 2015 “Win Your Own Pavestone Paradise” contest!

Wes won a backyard makeover worth up to $10,000 in materials and labor from Pavestone to turn his yard into a beautiful outdoor living space.

The winning makeover project will be featured on an upcoming episode of the Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford TV show.

Here’s the winning essay, which was accompanied by a video of Wes and his family in their backyard.


PLEASE make our backyard paradise dreams a REALITY! We’re a large family with five incredible kids, so we REALLY want our house to become THE positive “hangout spot” for their friends.

This investment in our family will reap huge benefits by creating life-long, “etched in Pavestone” memories, promoting outside activities, and cultivating a beautiful “garden” of friendships.

Your landscaping expertise would also eliminate two of our major backyard issues. A gorgeous tree provides great backyard potential, but its shade hinders grass from growing. We also have an ugly little concrete slab that doesn’t allow for any entertaining. Thank YOU!
