Scott's winning entry: "I have three children that love to play outdoors and my backyard is in terrible shape. The roots from the overgrown trees stick up out of the dirt and pose a safety problem. The soil is sand and I can't get grass to grow. It is an eyesore to my neighbors and is in major need of a makeover please help."

* Landscaping from Eagle Quality Landscaping
