Project of the Month

Every month, the editors of FromDesign2Build.com select a project submitted by one of our members, to be our featured "Project of the Month".  The project can be any size and in any price range.  A new installation or property renovation.  We just want you to show us your best work.

We've made it as easy as possible. 

1. Just download the submission form and tell us your story (you can type right on the form). 

2. Attach 3-5 photos (high resolution preferred) and maybe even a digital copy of the plan.

3. Email everything to jshilan@FD2B.com

4. Go to www.FromDesign2Build.com to see if your project was selected.

Winning submissions will be automatically eligible for Project of the Year.  At the end of the year, members will vote for their favorite project. The winner with the most votes will receive the FD2B Landscape Project of the Year award.

Remember: Enter early and enter often Smile

Thanks and good luck!
