I am entering this amazing sweepstakes offer because I want to have the best looking yard on my rural road. The crab grass and snap dragons and dandelions are taking over my back yard. We host a lot of summertime parties so I’d like to have a beautiful oasis for my guest with an outdoor kitchen for my husband.

I have a yard that is in desperate need of a makeover. My husband works so hard at his job by the time he comes home he is too tired to work in the yard. We love to entertain but with the way our yard looks no one likes to come over. We have 3 children 17,11,6 and are looking to adopt. I would love to have an area to enjoy with our growing family and friends. Please help us!

My son and is wife moved to this lake front area after they were married . They were living in a larger home, it was the home her and her previous husband owned. She sold that home and was able to buy a few homes they all needed some work! She was nice enough to offer us an opportunity to move into one of the homes even though we are not able to afford it !!! They both work afternoons, long hours, so, its hard to get yard work done. Beside the fact that the funds they did have from the sale didn’t last to finish the landscape on lakefront side of their yard . They both are very generous, so, I thought since this opportunity came up, I would hope I could enter for them to get a chance because they really need it !!! Her name is Laura Bryant my son is Bill Bryant, they live on Briggs Lake in Brighton MI 6525 Knox Thank You!!! P.S. I hope to send a pic through the mail with another entry!!!

I am entering this sweepstakes because I love flowers I have always had a pretty yard but since I ended up in a wheelchair I have been unable to have that. I just don’t have the money due to health reason. So I would love nothing more to have the yard of my dreams. so I can sit outside and breath the air again.

My husband and I have 5 wonderful grandchildren. Would love to do something for everyone of them but right at the moment we pnly have one that is buying his home. He is is a fireman for the West Monroe Fire Department and is in the process of taking an online RN course also works part-time for the ambulance service in that area. He is also getting married October of this year. He is a very busy young man. His home he is buying has a backyard that is in desperate need of landscaping. It is kind of an angle down toward the back door of his home, which causes the rain to run down toward it which has run up under the floor a little during the last flooding rain they had in that area. No real bad damage but it could be possible should it happen again. He also has a tree near his back door which keeps the grass from growing there. He has the desire for a nice patio to help keep his dogs from bringing dirt and mud in. This is his first home and he is 27 years of age. He is really working on doing something with his life and trying to do it the right way. We are very proud of him and would love to see him have the backyard he needs. He has no idea that i am wanting this for him, I would love for him to have this surprise.

I would love to win this backyard sweepstakes for my husband. He was wounded in Viet Nam and now after 40 some years he is unable to walk very far and do a lot of things. If we had a backyard he could enjoy that would be awesome! We used to have a camp but It just got to be too much for him. A tv, a fire pit and a fence and a water feature would be awesome.

My front yard is a mess. When it’s monsoon season the yard floods and water flows toward the front and almost comes to the front door.

I am desperate for help. Single mom, full time job and in an area devastated by drought. I tore out the front of dead dry grass, down to dirt, but now what? I have no idea and very limited funds. My back yard? Burr clover, dandelions, crab grass…Real grass? not so much. HELP !

Well to start. I was a widow for 4 yrs, however have been fortunate to marry the most amazing man. The back yard is in shambles. Between the way he works, sometimes out of town, he doesn’t have the time or energy to do what’s needed. We have a swimming pool that looks like a cement pond. We have frogs, and not as pets either, we prefer dogs. Since hurricane Rita, we have some type of vine that has taken over our yard. We can’t kill it. We need so much help with our yard. Also he loves to cook on the grill, and is pretty good at it. He needs an outdoor kitchen for him to do his magic.

I will send pictures if needed, but it might break the camera.

I desperately need our back yard made over. My husband and I are now retired. We live on social security which doesn’t leave us with any money to fix our back yard. Our patio has moss growing on it. Our stonewall is falling down. We have an invasive plant which I call bamboo coming up along the edges of our yard and is trying to come up in other places in the yard. I have flower gardens that are falling down and need tending to but I have fibromyalgia and arthritis which makes it hard for me to keep them up. I would love to have a good looking yard where I can have friends over but the way it looks now I hate to have them come.

My husband passed away in January.He worked so hard in the yard and it was one of the best looking yards on the street. Since he passed I have not been able to pay anyone to do more than cut the grass. It looks very shabby now. I am not physically able to do any of the yard work. I would be very grateful for any help

We bought a house 6yrs ago and have tried so many different things to kill all the weeds in our front and back yard. Every year the weeds come back bigger. We would like to sit outside without the weeds taking over, and we are the only house on the block without any shade/trees , we could use the help and ideas! Thank you!

My husband passed away from cancer just three years after we moved into our home. We did some remodeling to the house before he died, but the yard has been left up to me to do something with. I would be so thankful for a professional landscaper to landscape my yard. I hope I can win. Thank You.

We really need this! Our yard is uneven. The neighbors dog keeps coming over barking at us so, we could put up a fence so we can be able to go in our back yard. I like to have flowers, trees, and bushes to decorate it. You have no idea how much we’d appreciate it.

May 29, 2016 20:47

I desperately need this win. I have this huge yard with over grown trees, broken down fence, over grown greenery. I can see the potential in this yard with the $50.00 win.

I have to be honest. Today was my first day watching your program and I love it been watching it straight for 2 hours while I am watching my grandma. I am a very busy single mother of 3. So I am always on the go and I dont sit down much. I have a 9k square foot lot and a small house which means my back yard is huge. I want an entertaining back yard so my kids can invite their friends over to hang out and relax. I would also love to have an area for our chickens. I really am not sure where to start. I would love to have someone come in and take over and help to get this project done. Thank you for considering my family…

I would love to have my yard landscape redone, My husband I 79 years old and has a progressive Neurologic disease and is unable to maintain the yard as it is, It is ugly and quite dreadful right now.
I’d like the patio extended and a yard that is easier to maintain, something I can manage myself. at 75 years.
Thank you. Bridget.

plants to thrive over the years…This year lots of rain…so must plant
for next year—-if there’ s a change in the weather.
I would like my yard to be example of xerascape landscapes so

I have a grand plan for my back yard but right now it is just a jungle with the Nile of a creek washing away more of my property and trees everyday. I would love to use rocks to stop the erosion from taking my property and hillside. I would also love to put in a small putting green and sand trap to practice my golf. After a nice afternoon of golf, it would be nice to have an outdoor kitchen and dining area on my redone porch. It has some issues after so many years with my hot tub covered.

I am a single woman and Ihave been out of work for over a year and by the grace of God I’ve been fortunate enough to still be in my home. I’ve recently started back working and it has been very difficult for me to keep up with everything. The stress has been overwhelmed and I would love to have a beautiful place I can enjoy and be at peace.

Thank you,

My yard is a disaster!!! It is partial swamp partial woods all overgrown and totally useless. I am disabled and can’t afford to get it fixed and unable to physically do the work myself. I so need a yard fairy godmother or genie to come rescue me in Louisiana.

Jul 18, 2016 18:49

I need to have a yard where my children can play and enjoy especially in the summer. they rather spend the day inside because the yard is boring and I don’t blame them. I would love a pool where I can relax after work and actually have pretty flowers and plants around in the yard. help me make this dream come true since it can’t happen with me not working steadily and always having to worry how bills will get paid. at least a nice yard can become a staycation and help with relaxation and family time. thank you
