The show this year promises to feature over 300 exhibitors from roofers to remodelers and nurseries to appliance giants, as well as a full schedule of seminars and entertaining speakers.  Cisco Morris, a perennial favorite, will be back on Saturday afternoon inviting anyone to stump him with their toughest gardening questions.  Many presenters this year will be focusing on energy-efficiency and sustainable living techniques.

This will be our fifth year exhibiting at the Garden Show.  We have met many new customers there and always look forward to seeing those from the past.  Whether you are planning a major renovation or just want to take the family out for a few hours we hope you make it by our booth.  We will be raffling off some cedar planter boxes and other prizes throughout the show so stop by and visit anytime.
