2016 contest winner Carisa Scarpa’s Backyard Paradise

MOBILE, Ala. (March 14, 2017) – The top-rated Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford TV show is partnering with Pavestone to launch the Backyard Paradise contest for 2017. Each year, this popular contest draws thousands of entrants from across the U.S. With outdoor living spaces continuing to surge in popularity among homeowners, this contest is perfect for one lucky winner to create the backyard of their dreams and score an appearance on national television.

“Traditionally when people think about home renovations, they turn their attention indoors,” says Danny Lipford, host of Today’s Homeowner. “But the trend of creating livable and inviting outdoor spaces is here to stay. From kitchens and grill areas to lounging and entertaining, more homeowners are finding ways to blur the line between indoor and outdoor living.”

The Backyard Paradise contest kicks off today and runs through April 9, 2017. Contestants should submit a summary of why their yard is in need of a makeover, and indicate how they would utilize the space. Submission of videos and photos are encouraged. Entries can be completed online at https://todayshomeowner.com/contest.

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
  • Expertise from Home Improvement Guru and host of Today’s Homeowner, Danny Lipford
  • A featured role in an episode of Today’s Homeowner TV

Carissa Scarpa of Beaufort, SC, was the 2016 contest winner. The Today’s Homeowner and Pavestone teams renovated her backyard into an outdoor space fit for entertaining. Scarpa wrote in asking for help to transform her blank canvas backyard into a polished and inviting area to host a reception for her upcoming wedding. The episode is available for viewing at TodaysHomeowner.com.
