2014 Des Moines Home and Garden Show
posted: February 07, 2014
If you have forgot what summer feels like or are just looking to spend a few hours out of the cold, check out the Des Moines Home and Garden Show at the Iowa Events Center.
Like all of our installations, the Home Show display began with a plan. In this case we also used 3D design software to create a rendering of what the final installation would look like and how it would occupy the space on the show room floor.
The rendering is a helpful tool to communicate the scale of the project and how different design elements will eventually fit together.
We started our install on Monday, just four days before the show. A tight deadline when considering the huge amount of material required for the Feature Garden:
Character boulders and stone (20 tons)
Outdoor fire place (assembly required!)
Concrete pavers (400 square feet)
Hardwood mulch (7 cubic yards)
Plant material (including trees!)
The final display is impressive and is a showcase of everything we do at Landscapes by Design.
- Paver patios
- Natural stone edging
- Outcropping stone
- Landscape lighting
- Water features
- Outdoor fireplaces
- Custom design and craftsmanship
If you get a chance to go the Home and Garden Show this weekend, please stop by and say hello and check out the display. We look forward to seeing you!
