The grand prize winner may choose to make over the front or back yard of their property. In addition to the grand prize ticket, there are three runner-up prizes which include 4 yards of mulch or compost blown into landscaped beds by TerraScape, LTD, a birdbath donated by Suncrest Gardens and a basket of gardening supplies, courtesy of Graf Growers Garden Center.
