ABC6 and UNILOCK Backyard Oasis Reveal

By: Chelsea Priest,

Back in May, hundreds of entries came in to the ABC6 and Unilock Backyard Oasis contest. Now a few months later, the new patio and backyard was revealed to the lucky Portsmouth family.

Three days was all it took for the backyard to be transformed, rain didn't stop the workers who enjoy getting involved with the community. Unilock prides itself on being a family owned and operated company, making the choice of the Hurd family of six and easy one. Marc Petrowicz of Unilock says, “We're happy to be able to do this for the Hurd family. As you can see they are a beautiful family, very nice folks, and we couldn't be happier with the end results.”

When Taryn Hurd saw the backyard for the first time she said, “I thought it was gorgeous, I just thought, is this really ours? I get to look out my kitchen window and see this beautiful spot that I get to enjoy with my family.”

Arnold Lumber Company, The Rhode Island Nursery Association, and Aquidneck Landscape also volunteered their time and products towards the new patio.
