Think of it as the People's Choice Awards for home and garden, pool and outdoor living and design products. There won't be any shiny statuettes for the winners, nor will there be the gushing red carpet interviews and star-studded awards ceremony. Just the bragging rights that come with getting recognized by the readers of one of the biggest networks on the Web.
