Dream Backyard Giveaway Encourages Homeowners to Dream Big

Briggs & Stratton to Grant a Backyard Dream Every Month Through September

MILWAUKEE, March 24 /PRNewswire/ — Want a dream backyard without breaking the bank — or even a sweat? Briggs & Stratton Corporation is helping homeowners cut to the chase with the Dream Backyard giveaway exclusively at http://www.mydreambackyard.com/.

Entering is easy; the only difficult part is selecting one of the six backyard prize packages: Nature’s Nook, Backyard Athlete, Relaxation, Party Time, Kids’ Zone or Gardener’s Paradise. But there’s no need to choose just one. Consumers can enter once a day each month during the sweepstakes period, April through September. One winner will be drawn monthly.

The themed backyards feature big-ticket prize items, such as a putting green and deluxe basketball hoop to help improve your game. For those who prefer relaxation, there’s a hot tub. Gardeners will appreciate a new lawn tractor and the kids will jump for joy on their new trampoline and wooden play set. An outdoor bar and swimming pool are key ingredients in the Party Time backyard. Or, if “going green” in your outdoor space is important, the Nature’s Nook prize package features a greenhouse and many other earth-friendly items.

“The Dream Backyard is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to win a backyard oasis,” says Anita Fisher, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton. “The Dream Backyard Web site is also a source of inspiration to create the yard of your dreams as well as finding information on how to take care of it.”
