Win a Free Backyard Makeover!

Summer may be almost over but, as we all know, the warm weather will linger in Sacramento for another couple months. For those of you lucky enough to have backyards to enjoy the late summer/early fall weather in, SAFE Credit Union is putting on a contest in which you can win a free backyard makeover worth $6,000! The grand prize includes outdoor accessories and furnishings from Orchard Supply Hardware, as well as a personal consultation with an Executive Care landscaping expert.

To enter to win, just go to this website: and click on the package that appeals to you. You can choose the “Ultimate BBQ Spot”, the “Scene for Entertaining”, or the “Serene Retreat”. Each one includes some pretty cool stuff—I entered to win the “Scene for Entertaining” because it includes pink flamingos and something called a “night sky firepit” (not sure what that is, but it sounds awesome).

The best part about the contest is that you can go back to the website every day and vote to increase your chances of winning. Each week, they add a new item to the grand prize, which you can also vote on. You can vote once a day until September 30th.  Good luck!

Apparently this is a nightsky fire pit. Cute!
