East Texas family wins $28,000 backyard makeover

TYLER, Texas (KETK) - An East Texas family is getting a $28,000 backyard makeover thanks to​​​​​​ Petty's Irrigation, Landscape and Pest Control.

The contest inquired for families to submit a picture, explanation about the history of their current backyard and why it looks the way it does. 

Monday the Craine household was rewarded a backyard makeover for their Tyler home. 

"Having a nice place to have our friends over in the Fall. We can come out, sit on the patio and just enjoy it," the Craine family said. 

The new renovation will include a 300 square foot patio, outdoor lighting, a new outdoor professional-grade grill, landscaping, irrigation, new grass and pest control. 

"I'm looking forward to the patio and then just having grass, that hopefully will grow and stay," Rachael and Jamie Craine said. 

Before entering the contest this family shared how they bought their home and spent a great deal on renovations, leaving little money for backyard landscaping. 

The winning family will soon have their dream backyard.
