THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- Experts and exhibitors at the 11th annual Spring Home and Garden Show at The Woodlands will share new ideas and products that can both beautify and add value to your home.
The show will be held Saturday and Sunday, March 2 and 3 at the The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center at1601 Lake Robbins Drive.
Tony Wood, president of Texwood Shows, Inc. and producer of the event, said this year’s show will have a lot to offer.
“Sometimes a small improvement to a home or yard can make all the difference, and spring is the perfect time of year to spruce things up.”
Wood welcomes Massarelli's Fountains, to the show for the first time. "They are a top-of-the-line producer of fountains and fine stone garden statuary, with each piece handmade by master craftsmen. Each piece is an original."
Locals can find Massarelli's one-of-a-kind products at Spring Home & Outdoor, who will feature a 88" Massarelli fountain with a 8' fiberglass pool in their booth. They also carry other landscaping water features, such as disappearing fountains, Talavera and other pottery, benches and urns; along with potted arrangements to complement any decor from The Potted Shop.
Wood said attendees can get creative ideas to transform a backyard into an oasis at the feature landscape exhibit by Stewart Land Designs. “Also, the Belgard Hardscapes Mobile Display is one of our new show features and literally is a semi truck filled with ideas to create your own picture-perfect patio,” said Wood.
Brandon Lynch, a certified Aging-in-Place Specialist, will be featuring the Easy Living by Design booth. “Brandon is with Keechi Creek Builders and will share products and ideas on how to update a home to make it more accessible to meet an owner’s changing needs - a trend as baby boomers age,” Wood said.
