  1. I’m a 52 year old grandmother raising my grandson 6. He loves helping me with yard work . But it’s a lot of work . I love being outdoors planting I root everything . But need help …Help such a beautiful yard & I can’t keep up with it

  2. I love your shows and Chelsea’s online advice. They were very helpful when we were getting ready to sell our home up north to come south to be with our children and grandchildren. Where we live your show comes on around 5 or 5:30 am so I stream them to watch with my coffee and note pad to take notes. You are so down to earth and have a “real” way of fixing things without breaking the bank and not to mention your sense of humor!!!! I actually enjoy your show more than HGTV. Please keep it up!!!!

    • Thanks for making us a part of your routine! We sure do appreciate it.
      Please tell your friends about “Today’s Homeowner” so they can improve their homes — and their lifestyles — too. Take care!

  3. I’m not a regular viewer of your show, but am impressed when I do. I became a new homeowner recently with a blank slate backyard. So I will be viewing more for ideas.

  4. Did the entry period end? I couldn’t get good photos of my backyard because it was covered in snow. Now, it is clear and I was able to get photos, but I think the contest went period has ended

    • Hi, Scott! Thanks for your interest in this contest. Unfortunately, the entry period has passed.
      Fortunately, there’s always next year. 🙂
