Spring is right around the corner and local home and landscape vendors are hoping to get you in the mood to make some changes around your home and garden this weekend at the Home and Landscape Expo in Colorado Springs at the Norris-Penrose Event Center.
Over one hundred venders are featuring all kinds of home and garden products: from flooring to cabinets and even live food demonstrations. Exhibitors are not limited to home and garden supplies either. There is even a dog training school and financial planning advisers at the event. Additionally, there are four large-scale landscaped gardens as soon as you walk into the building.
If you have questions, bring them over suggests one of the exhibitors. "Most of the time you have the sales representatives with the professional knowledge so, it's a great place to come out and just get a lot of answers to those questions that you may have," says Matt Hiner of Hiner Landscapes.
One of the other exhibitors also suggested brining drawings and photos of the area you are considering to remodel. Most the representatives will be happy to offer you free advice.
