Winners of the Lawn & Landscape photo contest will win a free gas card.

| February 6, 2012

We know there are a lot of great companies doing a lot of great work out there. Well, now we want to see the proof, so we’re starting a photo contest for you to show your best stuff.

The entire month of February we are asking readers to send us one photo of a job they are especially proud of and a description of that project. We’ll announce the winner March 16.

Here are the rules:

Companies have to email a photo and short project description to Associate Editor Carolyn LaWell (clawell@gie.net) from Feb. 1-29. The submitting company also has to like our Facebook page. If a picture is submitted but our page is not liked by that company, it does not count.

All the submitted photos with be posted on our Facebook wall in a photo album on March 1. Companies will be encouraged to direct people to our Facebook page to like the photos. Likes will be counted until 5 p.m. EST March 15.

We will have two winners: A reader’s choice (based on the number of photo likes) and an editor’s choice (picked by the Lawn & Landscape editors). Each winner will receive a $50 gift card.
