Dream Backyard Makeovers Do Come True with Archadeck of Central Iowa, Belgard & TimberTech
In the spring of 2013, our Archadeck | Outdoor Living franchisor, Outdoor Living Brands, Inc., partnered with Belgard Hardscapes and TimberTech to sponsor our first-ever national contest. The contest offered a Grand Prize, $70,000 Dream Backyard Makeover. Much to our surprise – and theirs – Rick and Merea Bentrott right here in Central Iowa (Huxley, to be exact) won the Grand Prize and we worked with the Bentrott family to design and build their dream backyard makeover project.
Various blog posts were written chronicling this contest and the Bentrott’s project activities; click the links below to view:

The completed project was a dream come true for Rick and Merea and their family. The project includes a Belgard Urbana patio area and a nice, TimberTech Earthwood Evolutions capped-composite deck and Radiance Rail. A portion of the patio is open to the big Iowa sky and includes a fire pit area (in Mega Arbel pavers) with a Weston Wall Stone seat wall. A cedar-finished open porch anchors the other end of the patio and features Weston Wall Stone columns and a custom outdoor kitchen by Belgard’s Harmony division; the kitchen is complete with a built-in American Outdoor Grill and a Big Green Egg.
