We want to say thank you to all who participated in the third annual AmaZING Garden Giveaway! You left quite a task for our team to find the grand prize winner out of hundreds of beautiful photo submissions sent to us via Instagram and email. Our team agreed that each year, the images get better and the participants get more creative with their gardens!
But only one person can be the grand prize winner, and we’re pleased to announce that it’s Sue Blackwell of Lombard, IL, whose submission reminded us of a personal backyard oasis, complete with waterfall.
Sue’s winning photo:
She’ll receive a prize pack that includes a gardening stool and tools, watering can, gloves, seeds, knee pad, gardening book, a $50 gift card, Quicken Loans swag and more, so she can ensure her garden is always in tip-top shape!
Our runner-up is Sally Jarvey – her garden is lush and colorful from all angles but this was our favorite photo from her entry.
We also have three honorable mentions from the following Instagrammers:
@Greaseballs80: Check out this whimsical mix of flowers, succulents and Disney garden décor!
@Yammibaker: This elevated vegetable garden looks like a great space and money saver for this green thumb!
@Johnnorth100: The composition of this photo caught our attention because it shows the work and tools necessary to make a colorful garden grow.
Congratulations to Sue and a big thanks to all who participated! Be sure to check the Quicken Loans Zing Blog and follow us on Instagram @QuickenLoansZing for more exciting contests and prize-winning opportunities.
