Every Month, A Chance To Win A Dream Backyard
What’s in your dream backyard? A hot tub where you can relax to the max? A basketball hoop for a quick pickup game anytime? Or maybe a wooden play set for your kids that will be the envy of the neighborhood?
Stop dreaming. You could win your own dream backyard in the Dream Backyard Giveaway, which runs from now through September. Consumers can choose from five categories–Backyard Athlete, Green Thumb, Relaxation, Party Time and Kids’ Zone-and start building the backyard they have always wanted. To enter, visit www.dreambackyardgiveaway.com. Consumers may enter once a day each month during the sweepstakes period. One winner’s name will be drawn monthly.
There’s no question that homeowners love their backyards. According to the annual Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Expenditure Survey, between 2000 and 2003, when average household spending on home furnishings, supplies and services declined, Americans’ spending on lawn and garden supplies rose by 11 percent.
Briggs & Stratton, the largest maker of gasoline engines for a variety of outdoor power equipment, will help make those backyard dreams come true. The company has partnered with Westminster Teak, ChildLife, Hot Spring Spas, Allen Brothers, Broilmaster Premium Gas Grills and other companies to assemble a prize vault for every taste. Each prize category includes the winner’s choice of a Briggs & Stratton powered lawn mower, string trimmer or tiller to help maintain that dream backyard.
Consumers select one of the five backyard categories, then make choices within the category to create their dream backyard. For example, the Kids’ Zone includes a choice of sophisticated wooden play sets from ChildLife that feature a climbing ramp, swings, slide, sandbox and tree house.
Among the items in the Relaxation Backyard is a choice of two hot tubs from Hot Spring Spas. The compact Jetsetter, with 11 jets, can accommodate two or three adults, and is ideal for smaller yards. For downtime out of the water, Westminster Teak offers a choice of either a pair of teak captain’s steamer chairs or chaise loungers. The prize package includes other great relaxation items, such as an outdoor fountain, quilted hammock, patio chimenea and more.
For those looking forward to creating a Party Time backyard, prizes in that package include an outdoor teak bar, choice of premium stainless steel gas grills from Broilmaster, a choice of succulent grilling meats and seafood from Allen Brothers and much more.
