Try to answer these questions quickly because the time for entries is running out!

The Blue Lakes trees can be removed and put another tree model in place, or can I just edit them?

Can I build a car and other things inside the Blue Lakes garage?

Can I increase the amount of grass and put flowers in the garden?

At the front and rear entrances of the house, can I put doors, or do I have to leave them without doors and open?

Do I have to decorate the garden?
No, this is optional.

With it being optional, does that mean gardens and landscaping are not part of the actual grading or judging process?

I'm working in the Cedar Estate. Would it be okay to slightly change the placement of the birch doors so that they line up with each other and the trapdoors above them when closed?

Can I change the doors? (to clarify i mean the actual doors that are in the doorways, not the doorways themselves)
Can I change the shutters on the windows and doors on the Cedar Estate map? (pretty sure the answer here is no)
Can I change the railing on the balcony?

Unique rules to this contest:
  1. Do not edit the exterior of the homes including windows or doorways. This rule also applies to the garage.
  2. All internal walls and floors can be edited. The fireplaces can be edited cosmetically. Internal stairs can be edited. This rule also applies to the garage
  3. Gardens can be landscaped. Existing trees/hedges can be edited, or removed. Small structures such as patios, gazebos or a barbecue can be constructed in the garden. Structures can not be large, or treated as "extensions" to the house exterior.

Yes... I've read that. These are questions to clarify things. The doors and shutters could be considered either or both interior or exterior and it's been stated elsewhere here that the patio floor and ceiling can be changed, I want to know if that extends to the railing. Simply reposting the basic rules that everyone participating is expected to have read isn't really helpful.

The balcony is exterior, thus I am pretty sure that the railing (since these are supposed to be kinda emulating houses in a typical tract housing neighborhood, with all essentially same but interiors individualized by those living in them) counts are housing exterior and thus falls under the first rule. Sorry you didn't find the rules repost helpful, to be fair, I am sure that individuals who may not want to have multiple page tabs open...or who do not desire to go back and forth between the forum page and the contest page...may find it helpful. :)

Happy decorating, and best wishes with your entry!

You said that are allowed to use custom heads, but I can't use them, says: "Unknown command".

In 1.15 is little bit different command on how to summon a custom head. Check this database of custom heads https://minecraft-heads.com/custom-heads and then use code for "Minecraft 1.13 - 1.15".
I hope it will help you.

Maybe the cheat was disable since it was set as default on every starting map. That's one of the reason it give you the message "Unknown command".
If that's the case, you can turn it on via "Open to LAN"

Adding vehicles on the roads aren't allowed though.. You aren't allowed to edit the exterior of walls, you are allowed to add stuff into the gardens, but not onto the roads. :c
