Above All Masonry Design Welcome Home Contest: Now Accepting 2017 Nominations For a Patio & Healing Garden!

Above All Masonry is proud to announce the Fourth Annual Welcome Home Project, where we give away, every year, a landscape design makeover to a deserving Long Island family. This year, we are creating a patio escape with a healing garden for someone that has gone through or is currently going through a tragedy (medical, family, etc.). Online nominations are now open through July 31!

To nominate someone, all you need to do is make a facebook post explaining why you're nominating this person. Please make sure the post is public, tag @AboveAllMasonryDesignInc and add the hashtag #welcomehome2017.

Nominations can be submitted by anyone from anywhere, but the nominee must:
- Be a Long Island homeowner
- Have gone through some kind of tragedy/hardship, either personally or within their family.

Whether it’s a family with a disabled member, a loss of a loved one, or terminal medical illness, we would be honored to hear their stories. And yes, you can nominate yourself, friend, coworker, neighbor or a family member!

After nominations close on July 31, the community will vote in August! We'll provide access to details about every nominee and the public will have their say! The top 5 nominees with the most votes will then go to a panel of 6 judges. The panel will select the final winner based on: their story, their current landscape situation, and Above All Masonry's ability to help make a different. We’ll then work with the winning family to create the design and then plan to complete the installation this fall!

For the 2016 winner, we created a handicapped accessible backyard space for homeowner Mark Pirollo and his fiancee, Catherine. The ramp for Mark's wheelchair was the main highlight of this project along with a fire pit, patio, and grill. 

We’re immensely honored to continue the Welcome Home program for its fourth year.

Go nominate someone now!!
