Greater Charlotte Home & Landscape Show is Coming!

Lake Norman Garden Display

Maybe it’s the fact that it is 17 degrees here in Lake Norman this morning, but the thought of going to the 5th Annual  Greater Charlotte Home and Landscape Show  on January 23 – 25 sounds really good!

This Home and Landscape show incorporates just about everything I love about real estate and selling homes:

  • Gardens and Landscaping
  • Building and Remodeling
  • Home Improvement Products
  • Building Green Seminars
  • Gourmet Gifts, Wines and Pottery

There will be celebrities like Roger Cook, the landscape contractor from This Old House who will share new trends in landscaping and Chef Lou Petrozza from Fox TV’s “Hell’s Kitchen” who will be giving cooking demonstrations.

I always gravitate to the live garden displays where vendors like Barefoot Landscape, Woodlands Landscaping and Toms Creek Nursery and Landscaping  promise to have displays including an outdoor cobblestone patio with fire pit, built-in kitchen, a small water feature with a focus on drought resistant plants.

You can also meet with professional landscape designers and meet the team at Earth Graphics Landscape Design and Digital Images display which will explain how they offer “same day mobile landscape design service that produces professional plans without the wait”!
