The Open Search - held twice a year in June and December - gives Insiders the opportunity to submit ideas from any product category.
It works just like our sponsor-specific Live Product Searches, except we’ll work with any consumer goods retailer or manufacturer in any mass-appeal category.Learn more about becoming an Insider

For most of us, it’s been an unseasonably mild winter, making it easy to tap into all that springtime has to offer, from showers to flowers. Liberty Garden, a lawn and garden products company that sells into major retailers nationwide, is backed by 20 years of experience and is known for their exceptional designs, attention to detail, and uncompromised quality. Liberty Garden is now turning to you to find new innovations for their outdoor living, and lawn and garden collections.
For this search, can you think of new innovations that would keep that wily garden hose in its place? How do you keep your tools or your potting soil contained? Where do you store them? What ideas have you come up with while tending to your yard, and what problems have you solved when it comes to your own outdoor space?
Liberty Garden’s target demographic is split evenly between male and female consumers who are homeowners and weekend DIY’s (do-it-yourselfers)!
Some keys to consider when crafting your solutions:
• For hose reel innovations, think of a way to improve self-winding hose storage units. Or, what new methods have you concocted to hang and move hose reels?
• New innovations should be easy-to-use products that will become reliable fixtures in a person’s garden or lawn, year after year.
• Liberty Garden would like to stay away from decorative solutions, and are focused on looking for innovative yet functional and practical products.
• Keep metal in mind: Liberty Garden would like to see more metal in their product line, rather than strictly plastic creations.

Reward: Advance & Royalties
Licensed ideas will receive a $2,500 minimum advance on 20 years percentage of sales or buyout. We split the licensing royalties 50/50 with you on the products that we select. Royalties vary based upon the product but we always earn industry-leading rates.
We ask for well-communicated ideas. This includes filling out our easy-to-use submission form to the best of your ability. Upload images, sketches and any other media that support your idea. Tell us your story. We even encourage you to create a video demonstrating your innovation. Don’t worry. We aren’t expecting you to break out your inner Spielberg. Please keep videos to less than 2 minutes.
As always, your submission should be unique and protectable (patent protection is helpful but not a requirement).
Each idea costs just $25 ($20 for Edison Insiders) to submit. If you are an Edison Nation Insider, your idea may be submitted to as many searches as you would like at no additional cost. Click here for more details on Live Product Searches.
