Congratulations to the winner of our 2017 Video Landscape Makeover Contest – Molly Thuis and Family on Talman Ave!

Molly and her family will receive a landscape makeover from our company worth $5,000 in addition to 300FT2 of Unilock Classic Pavers. We will be contacting Molly and her family soon to setup our initial consultation to begin the makeover process.
The top three videos, after tallying the judges scores (out of a possible 10), were:

1) Molly Thuis – Creeping Charlie – 7.11
2) Laura Monks – Monks Castle – 6.64
3) Mike and Sarah Paprocki – Paprocki Landscape Makeover – 5.86

The voting criteria (on a scale of 1-10) was the following:
A) The visual impact a landscape makeover would make to the property
B) How convincing is the argument “Why choose our/my home”?
C) Creativeness of the video
D) Need of a landscape makeover

All videos were vetted to ensure meeting the remaining criteria prior to being shown to our judges (i.e. Eligibility, Family Friendliness, etc.).
