It’s that time of the year again to freshen up your space! Spring is the season to tackle your home improvement to-do list or get ideas for your next big project, and the Spring Maryland Home & Garden Show is the perfect starting point.
Running Saturday and Sunday, February 29 and March 1 and Friday – Sunday, March 6 – 8 at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, the show will feature more than 400 exhibitors, featured guests, beautifully landscaped gardens, homeowner seminars, family activities and more.
Professional contractors with expertise in decks and patios, kitchens, baths, remodeling, spas, windows, additions, new construction and many unique products you won’t find anywhere else will be on site. Many exhibitors will be offering specials available only at the show.
Special guests for the first weekend of the show are The Rose Kings. The “Redneck Rosarian” Chris VanCleave teams up with Brian Puckett, curator of the nation’s first municipal Earth-Kind Rose trial, to show you how to have a stunning rose garden without harmful chemicals on their Sustainability Tour.
Don’t miss the seminars “Roses for the Real World” and “Which Rose is Right For You.”The second weekend will feature the Maryland Orchid Society show and sale with thousands of orchids on display along with plenty of advice on how to care for these stunning flowers – it’s easier than you think!
This year’s garden theme is “Entertaining with Nature’s Pizzazz.” Twelve landscapers will showcase gardens with beautiful outdoor entertaining spaces. Green Scapes Unlimited, a full-service landscape architecture business based in White Marsh, will have one of the featured gardens on display.
“Our garden will highlight outdoor entertaining and backyard living at its best,” said Jon Williams, manager of Green Scapes, which has been exhibiting at the show for more than 10 years. “We’ll have a fireplace and an elevated patio and pergola.”
“Now is the time to plan. The weather is changing and spring is around the corner,” he said. Retaining walls, pavers, boulders, water features and lighting options are some of the things to take into consideration when planning an outdoor space.
“A lot of the items we display at the Home and Garden Show are what we sell throughout the season,” he said. “These are things you’ll find in everyday backyards based on what people actually want. We try to make things realistic and economical for the homeowner.”
“The Home and Garden Show is an exciting place to generate a lot of ideas for your outdoor living space,” said Williams. “There are so many things to look at and so many styles all in one place. I highly recommend you walk through the gardens they are the highlight of the show.”
The Spring Maryland Home and Garden Show will also include the Spring Craft Show, with more than 125 crafters offering one-of-a-kind gifts and home décor items; a free Wine Tasting with several Maryland wineries with bottles available for purchase; and a Petting Zoo with goats, rabbits, llamas, turtles and more. There will also be a free bouquet giveaway every hour of the show.
