MOBILE, AL (March 30, 2020) — Outdoor living is more popular than ever, and Today’s Homeowner is ready to make one homeowner’s backyard dreams come true. The multimedia home improvement brand is opening up entries for its international Backyard Paradise contest beginning today through April 26.

The winner of this contest, sponsored by Pavestone and Quikrete, will receive a backyard makeover and be featured on the internationally syndicated television show, “Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford,” which reaches over 2 million weekly viewers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“Outdoor living continues to be a huge interest and investment for homeowners,” says Danny Lipford, host of “Today’s Homeowner” TV. “I look forward to this contest each year because it’s rewarding to work with homeowners and help them transform their outdoor space into a beautiful, functional extension of their home. My team and I get to help bring a dream to reality, plus give our audience some creative, practical inspiration to upgrade their own backyards.”

This annual contest attracts thousands of entrants from all across the U.S. For the first time, Canadian residents will be eligible to participate. Entrants must be legal residents of either the U.S. or Canada (excluding the province of Quebec), at least 21 years of age, and current homeowners. The contest is hosted online at  

The winner of the contest will receive:

  • Up to $10,000 in Pavestone and Quikrete materials (may include pavers, retaining blocks, fire pits, concrete and more)
  • Labor/installation to create their backyard paradise
  • Expert advice from the Today’s Homeowner, Pavestone and Quikrete design teams
  • A featured role in an episode of “Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford”

To enter the contest, homeowners must click here for the entry form and submit a 100-word or less summary of why their backyard needs a makeover, desired improvements, a description of how an upgraded space would be used, and photos of their current backyard. Video submissions are highly encouraged.
