Tour five beautiful feature gardens

We’ve endured a long, cold, snowy winter, waiting impatiently for the first signs of spring. It’s still winter, but inside the Home Garden Show, spring is here! The Show has long been known for its beautiful landscapes filled with fabulous flowers, hardscape materials, water features and the newest ideas for your yard and garden. Stroll through five fantastic gardens and be inspired to create your own retreat.

The theme for the gardens at this year’s show is Treasures of Spring, and the landscapers have worked hard to create gardens that are beautiful outdoor retreats and creative living spaces great for relaxation, family time and entertaining.

Frisella Nursery has created Rustic Spring Beauty. A pavilion made of stone and hand-hewn timber sits atop a hillside setting of boulder shelves and outcroppings. A stream flows into a waterfall that cascades to a flagstone patio with a kitchen and natural stone fireplace, and unique plant material forced into bloom creates a colorful spring display.

Outdoor Systems Inc. showcases Modern Style. Clean lines, simple colors and trendy style come together in the landscape for the Feature Home. This garden expands the creative possibilities for outdoor spaces with the newest products for natural stone retaining walls and a sharp, functional inground pool with the latest in water feature technology.

Prestige Landscape has built An American Garden. Antique freestanding stone fences give the garden a feeling of space and tranquility, and the sound of water trickling over rocks focuses your attention on the mossy waterfall. Tall evergreens and flowering trees will make you forget you are inside at the Home Show. Flowers in such abundance will cause you to pause and take in the beauty of this small space garden.

Rivers West Landscaping presents Elements of Nature. This garden features a bounty of natural elements, with an impressive 1,000 pound sandstone boulder with a fire feature at its centerpiece. A wide variety of pavers make up the landscape’s structure, including a fire pit, a seating wall and lighted columns. The natural stone bar with limestone countertop and outdoor cooking pit are perfect for entertaining friends. You’ll feel like you’ve gotten away from it all, surrounded by flowering shrubs, spruce trees, white pines and huge maple trees.

Signature Landscapes  Design presents the Treasures of Spring. Tucked away down a stone pathway and through lush gardens, a waterfall emerges from the earth, greeting visitors. Follow the path where garden treasures can be found at each turn. It’s never cold in this garden. Cozy up to a warm, rustic fireplace and kitchen hearth that welcomes those who find their way into the heart of the garden. Discover a resting place of untold beauty, with the best that Mother Nature can provide.

Tour these beautiful gardens and be inspired to turn your yard into a fabulous outdoor living space!
