Trex Launches Spring Outdoor Living Giveaway

In conjunction with April’s Earth Day and Earth Month observances, Trex Co. is teaming with celebrity landscape designer Carmen Johnston to transform a home’s outdoor space into an oasis in time for summer through the “Trex x Carmen Johnston Spring Refresh Giveaway.”


“Founded on sustainable principles, Trex celebrates Earth Day every day, making our partnership with Carmen Johnston, who keeps sustainability at the forefront of her designs, a natural collaboration,” said Leslie Adkins, vice president of marketing and ESG development at Trex. “Between Carmen’s expertise, and the many products and resources available from Trex, the winner of this sweepstakes will receive all the guidance and tools they need to start planning their ideal outdoor living space.”

Founder and owner of Carmen Johnston’s Gardens, Johnston is an accomplished outdoor living designer whose work has been featured by such high-profile media outlets as Garden & Gun, Southern Living, Country Living and across HGTV’s magazine, television and social platforms. As the landscape expert for the HGTV Smart Home 2022 and 2023, Carmen has gained experience working with Trex’s extensive portfolio of outdoor living products while designing the homes’ exterior spaces.

“Creating beautiful spaces that encourage outdoor living and family memories—summer sunsets, s’mores, cozy fireside chats, spring in bloom—is my starting vision for every design,” said Johnston. “The team at Trex shares that vision, and they make it easier for homeowners to create their dream outdoor living spaces with products that are stylish, durable, hassle-free and easy on the environment.”

The winner of the giveaway will receive an outdoor living prize package consisting of a one-hour design consultation with Carmen Johnston, a Monterey Bay five-piece round bar set from the eco-friendly Trex Outdoor Furniture Collection, and a $200 gift card to help bring their space to life. Entrants who don’t win may still benefit from Johnston’s expertise by reviewing inspirational deck plans designed exclusively for Trex, showcasing how to create eco-friendly outdoor living areas for spaces of any size.

To enter, visit and follow the simple instructions. The winner will be announced in May and will be required to create a testimonial with Trex, which will be featured on as well as across Trex’s social media platforms.

Entries will be accepted through 11:59pm ET on April 30, and there is a limit of one entry per email address per day.
