MyBuilder is once again on the hunt for the worthiest winner of a garden makeover. The stakes are high, as this year’s winner will win a £1,000 transformation of their green space.

Research has shown that spending time in green spaces can reduce stress, enhance mood and improve health. However, creating a tranquil oasis in your backyard is easier said than done.

We want to know what this prize would mean to you. You can nominate yourself, a friend or relative for the prize – we are looking for the most worthy winner of a plant-filled paradise!

 

How to Enter

Tell us how a garden makeover would change the lives of the person or people who use that space. Make it convincing, because only the top 12 entries with the most votes will go through to our final round to be judged by MyBuilder.

To complete your entry, submit a picture of the garden and make sure to include yourself or the people who use it.

 

The Winner

Entries are open to public voting and individuals taking part can lobby in all forms of media to get votes for their entries. A shortlist of twelve will be made of those with the most votes. Entries are open until midnight on 16th April 2017. Voting will continue until 23rd April 2017 when the shortlist will be announced. MyBuilder will select the winner from the shortlisted entrants and the result will be announced through the MyBuilder website and official social channels.

A garden makeover with a value of up to £1,000 including materials and a MyBuilder tradesman to complete the work.
