The flowers are slowly coming into bloom, the sun is beginning to shine just a little bit warmer and the masses are starting to look at what is new in residential design as the outdoor recreation season begins. Oh who are we kidding, We live in San Diego! All year long is the outdoor recreation season. Every year around this time the Spring Home/Garden Show comes to town at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and every year a select group of master gardeners get to show their chops at the Master Gardeners exposition. The Garden Show is as they put it, is a place where you can find everything for your home, where show prices are the best and where you can buy plants direct from the growers. Don’t forget that any event at the fairgrounds has to include great food and the carts were out in full swing this year. Mmm, cant you just smell the kettle corn or grilled sausage over an open flame?
The Garden show provided the opportunity for San Diego residents to meander through the booths of merchants and business people all vying for our attention to help make our homes inside and out a better place. However, the main event at least in my opinion is the Garden Masters Exposition. The exposition showcases a variety of excellent Landscape Design companies displaying their version of beauty, design and function in a friendly competitive environment. The variety and diversity of displays is what makes this exposition so great, with designs that can attract a wide variety of show goers. The Spring Home/Garden show for 2013 was quite the success for everyone involved by providing exposure to a plethora of local companies and for demonstrating the great amount of creativity and hard work by those who put on the show.
