When turning your house into a dream home, remember not to overlook the exterior. Improving landscaping not only adds value to a property but also makes a house more welcoming when you come home each day.
The Third Annual Sugar Land Home and Garden Show will offer a number of new ideas for turning your yard into an oasis. The event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 26 and 27 at the Stafford Centre,10505 Cash Road, Stafford.
Of the show’s lineup of speakers and more than 200 exhibitors, several will focus on landscaping tips and outdoor products, Tony Wood, president of Texwood Shows, Inc., said.“In Texas, we can use our gardens and patios almost year-round,” Wood said. “They become additional rooms in our homes, and there are several ways to improve those outdoor-living spaces.”
Crenshaw Landscapes is one of the featured exhibitors. The local company has served greater Houston for the past 30 years. The entire booth will be covered in an aluminum shade structure from area contractor, Made In The Shade. The structure is virtually maintenance free, is hurricane rated and comes in several colors to complement the home.“We will showcase several affordable and high-quality residential lighting options,” owner Scott Johnson said.
Big Tex Trees will also exhibit at the Sugar Land Home and Garden show, offering design assistance for homeowners — whether they need only a few trees or enough plants to fill an entire landscape.
Enchanted Nurseries and Landscapes Garden Center will bring assorted fruit trees, plants with seasonal color and custom containers.
The show will feature expert speakers Randy Lemmon, host of KTRH 740’s GardenLine show; and Brenda Beust Smith, author of the Houston Chronicle’s “The Lazy Gardner” blog and recipient of numerous journalism awards.
Boone Holladay, Fort Bend Master Gardener, will discuss ways to decrease a lawn’s demand for water in his presentation, “Landscape Water Conservation: simple steps to make a big change.” Holladay is the horticulture extension agent with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Fort Bend County.
“We have a great lineup of speakers who are true experts in gardening, plus professionals offering great ideas and products for outdoor living.” Wood said.
