The Dreamscape Makeover 2012 is Underway

Akron, Ohio- On August 6, 2012, the makeover process began for the backyard of West Akron resident, David Canfield. Canfield was chosen as the grand prize winner of the 2012 Dreamscape raffle when his ticket, which he purchased online, was drawn on June 7. From August 6 until August 10, Canfield’s backyard is undergoing a makeover that Keep Akron Beautiful (KAB) invites you to come see for yourself! Just call Keep Akron Beautiful at 330-375-2116 to schedule a time to meet KAB staff at the site. Can’t make it Monday through Thursday to view the work in progress? Call to make arrangements to stop by on Friday to see the final results!

Only two days in and the trees have been trimmed and the work has started on putting in a new patio. Throughout the week local vendors will work together to create the backyard of David Canfield’s dreams.

In addition to our wonderful vendor partners, Keep Akron Beautiful would like to spotlight Best Turf, R & T Fence and John and Lisa Glas of Glas Ornamental Iron who have helped us make this year’s Dreamscape Makeover possible!
