The show reaches over 1.6+ million weekly viewers throughout the U.S. 

“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. Entrants must be legal residents of the U.S., at least 21 years of age, and current homeowners. The contest is hosted online at TodaysHomeowner.com/BackyardParadise.
