Ever ponder how we build 12 gardens in THREE DAYS? It’s not magic, but it’s close! In late February a remarkable feat occurs as the Portland Home & Garden Show trucks in tons of dirt, rock, bark, sand, gravel and plants for the landscapers. In a matter of days the region’s top landscape experts and organizations will create amazing works of landscaping artistry right on the floor of the Expo Center – ushering in the return of spring and creating a gardener’s delight! The Portland Home & Garden Show strives to bring a variety of garden experts and designers representing homeowner interests and desires for the perfect backyard or front yard entry that fits Northwest living and lifestyles!
