Four Days Left to Enter Dream Backyard Makeover!

ARCH_7117 Dream Backyard Makeover BlockOver the past two and half months, we at Archadeck Outdoor Living have been thrilled to be running the Dream Backyard Makeover Contest. Unfortunately, there are only 4 more days to enter! If you haven’t submitted a photo of your current backyard along with a description of what you would like in your dream backyard, make sure you do it by April 22nd, 2013! Voting on the six finalists will be begin on Wednesday, April 23rd and the contest winner will be announced on or around May 6th.

As of this morning, there have been just under 1,700 submissions. It’s been wonder reading all of the entrants’ stories and learning more about how they intend to use the space (some of you have great plans!). The grand prize is obviously the $70,000 backyard makeover which will include both a deck and patio component using TimberTech and Belgard products. Recently, I’ve been receiving questions on how the deck design will be settled on and built, so I wanted to describe the process the winner will be experiencing.

Our deck designers and builders take their job very seriously. It is our goal to provide you with a space that is not only beautiful, but also usable and the homeowner is key to that conversation. After the winner is chosen, our local Archadeck owner will visit with the homeowner, survey the entire yard and discuss the needs and wants of the family. By knowing the intended use of the space as well as some of the homeowners likes and dislikes, a custom outdoor living environment can be created that will make everyone happy.

Just like the typical Archadeck Outdoor Living client, the Dream Backyard Makeover Contest winner will be given a 3D design rendering of the space so they can easily envision the end outcome and what it will look like in their backyard. I must say, it can be incredible to see the before, the design and the after.

Once the design is settled on, Archadeck will pull all the necessary permits and get all the necessary building materials ready to get started. And, from there, the transformation begins! Our franchisee and their local team will work to get the space built so that the homeowners can once again enjoy their backyards. Everyone at Archadeck can’t wait to get started on the contest winner’s backyard. Only a few weeks until the winner is finalized!

As always, we’ll be here updating you on the project along the way.

Again, if you haven’t yet submitted your entry yet, you have four more days to do so! You can enter at

Good luck everyone!

  1. Just boought a new home and I am in a desperate need of a make over. The house was abandon for 2 yrs so it is bad.

  2. My backyard is in desperate need of help. 2012 did a number on my beautiful yard, but Praise God I am here to see all of it. On February 9, 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a bilateral mastectomy on February 13, 2012. Then on April 9th, I had to have my ovaries removed, and then I began reconstruction surgery. Missed the last half of the school year with my students and then if that wasn’t enough, our home and yard was in the path of a TORNADO!!! I have sent an entry with a picture of our new garage, with the backyard in just a construction catastrophe. I do not know if my entry was received. I would very much like to win a backyard makeover. Backyard is desperate in HAMPTON, VA!!!

  3. Who doesn’t want a beautiful space to enjoy nature and family. Most households are scrambling to cover the musts instead of the wants. Thank you for extending the offer of a dream come true. Fingers crossed my end but whatever the result, can’t wait to see the design unfold in a lucky someone’s yard! Kathleen/NJ
