System Pavers Awards Ugly Backyard Contest Winner With $5,000 Toward Extreme Makeover

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 3, 2012) - Sometimes it just pays to be ugly, and in this case the payout was for $5,000 to Gaile Gonzales of Winchester, California.

Gonzales was the winner of System Pavers Ugly Backyard Contest for 2012. Gonzales and dozens of other contestants throughout System Pavers' market areas covering Southern California, Northern California, Colorado, Washington and Oregon, entered photos of their "ugly" backyard on System Pavers Facebook page in hopes of getting the most votes from Facebook friends and others interested in the contest. By more than 600 votes, Gonzales' backyard was voted the "ugliest backyard," earning Gonzales $5,000 for an outdoor living area makeover.

"I am so excited to have System Pavers come and save my backyard! I can't wait to have a beautiful patio where we can entertain, BBQ, and most of all enjoy playing with my dog and my toddler. Thank you System Pavers!" - Gaile Gonzales

Design and construction have begun on an elegant new outdoor living area for the Gonzales family and work is expected to be completed soon. To see the transformation in progress, visit
