How to Become Our Next HARDSCAPE HERO

Every month, Eagle Bay holds a contest for contractors to spotlight their latest and greatest work using Eagle Bay pavers. Contractors who submit their project on our website receive a free Eagle Bay hat, and those selected as the month’s winner are rewarded the following prizes:

  • A $250 gas card
  • A professional photoshoot of the submitted project
  • A blog post featured on our website
  • Exposure on all Eagle Bay’s social media platforms
  • 10 t-shirts with the company logo
  • Hardscape Hero stickers

Below, we’ve put together 5 easy tips to submitting a winning Hardscape Hero application.

1. Choose the right project.

Out of all the projects you’ve finished this season, make sure you submit the ones you’re most proud of. Chances are, you’re competing with other highly skilled contractors who consider their submissions their best current work.

We encourage projects of all sizes, shapes and forms. If you’ve done an amazing job transforming even a tiny backyard hill into a beautifully layered retaining wall, go ahead and submit. Creativity and originality are more important factors than the size of the project.

2. Take great photos.

Think about it. Your team has spent countless hours putting their backs into building a brand new, beautiful outdoor living space. Now it’s time to show off just how gorgeous the project is. Take 2-3 sectional photos that highlight the best aspects of your project. Don’t worry about hiring a professional photographer; we want the process to be easy for you, and encourage photos taken with your smartphone or camera. Just keep in mind that one of the pictures you send us will be the cover of our blog post.

3. Fill out the HH application properly.

We know filling out our application isn’t the most exciting thing you’ll do all day, but make sure you take the time to fill out the form properly. Don’t forget small details like the names of paver products and their colors. It will help us appreciate your craftsmanship that much more knowing the variety of products used to finish your project.

4. Get approval from the homeowner.

Because we will be having a professional photoshoot of your work, it’s important that the homeowner feels comfortable with their property being photographed.

5. Submit, sit back, and relax.

Now that you’ve submitted your work, sit tight while we choose the winner. If you don’t win for the month, don’t sweat it. You can always submit for the next month!

P.S. While you’re waiting, check your mailbox for your new Eagle Bay hat.
