MOBILE, ALABAMA (March 18, 2019) — The backyard paradise of your dreams could be just a click away thanks to Today’s Homeowner and Pavestone! The two home improvement brands are partnering once again for a national “Backyard Paradise” contest, which begins today.

This annual contest is very popular with Today’s Homeowner fans, and draws thousands of entrants from across the U.S.

A 2018 survey from LightStream indicates rising popularity for outdoor living projects. In fact, the survey reports that 43 percent of homeowners are planning to improve their outdoor spaces, with deck, patio and landscaping projects rising to the top of the list.

Continued interest in outdoor living doesn’t surprise Home Improvement Expert and host of “Today’s Homeowner” TV, Danny Lipford.

“I’ve watched the trend of outdoor living grow steadily among my audience and clients for the past 15 years,” says Lipford. “People are looking at their backyards as an extension of their homes, and the industry has responded by creating stylish, comfortable and affordable products that help homeowners easily bring the indoors out. I’m looking forward to helping the lucky winner of our ‘Backyard Paradise’ contest create a space they can enjoy, and at the same time, give our audience great advice and inspiration to transform their own spaces.”

The “Backyard Paradise” contest kicks off today and runs through April 14, 2019. The contest is open to legal residents of the U.S. who are at least 21 years of age and current homeowners. Contestants may enter the contest online at

Entries should be submitted with a 100-word or less summary of why the backyard needs a makeover, desired improvements, and a description of how an upgraded space would be used. Submission of videos and photos is highly encouraged.

The winner of the contest will receive:
• Up to $10,000 in Pavestone materials – including pavers, retaining blocks, fire pits and more
• Labor/installation to create the outdoor living area of their dreams
• Expert advice from Today’s Homeowner and Pavestone design teams
• A featured role in an episode of “Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford”

Lexington couple, Walt and Beth Arnett, won the 2018 Backyard Paradise contest. They submitted a funny video appealing to show hosts, Danny Lipford and Chelsea Lipford Wolf, to rescue them from their boring, broken-down backyard. The “Today’s Homeowner” TV episode featuring the Arnetts and their backyard makeover is available here.
