Calling all contractors!

Submit pictures of your 2017 landscaping and hardscaping project by email to [email protected]for the 2017 Grandies.

Projects are evaluated across 8 categories, including:

There are always rules. These are ours.

The contest is open to all Grand River Natural Stone customers, whether landscaper or homeowner.

  • Entries will be accepted no later than Sunday, December 31.
  • You may submit your pictures via email to [email protected] or in person on a USB stick.
  • One submission per entrant per category. Your submission may enter multiple project categories, so choose your best work! (For example: You may enter one project to compete in both Best use of Unilock and Best use of Fire, but you may not enter multiple projects to compete in the Best Use of Unilock category).
  • No more than 6 pictures per category.
  • All projects must feature a minimum of 50% product purchased from Grand River Stone (we will make this judgment ourselves, and may also ask you for a proof of purchase).

Entries are judged on creativity, attention to detail, project flow and photo quality.
