The 2014 Yard, Garden, and Patio Show is Here!
Today is the day! This morning the floodgates open at the Oregon Convention Center for another fabulous few days celebrating the best the Portland area has to offer in landscape design at the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show. The All Oregon Landscaping exhibit is no exception; this year we developed the most intricate display yet. The focus is on the family, and finding multiple uses for your outdoor space and incorporating the highest technology in your landscape design. If you’d like to see a bit more about our design for this year’s Yard, Garden, and Patio Show, check out our previous post, Plans For the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show 2014. Here’s what our 2014 plans looked like on paper.
How the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show Display Comes Together
The week leading up to the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show is a culmination of months of preparations, and can be hectic, rushed, and quite crazy. Our fearless leader, Tony Prunty, always does a fabulous job of getting the details exactly right, and organizing the team so that every facet of the design is carried to perfection. The week begins on Monday with flatbed trucks, U-Hauls, and backhoes inside the Oregon Convention Center, unloading and moving materials about. As the week progresses, elements of the landscape design are thoughtfully crafted; starting with big features like running water then followed by smaller features like shrubs and trees. By Friday, we are dressing the exhibit with flowers, pots, and lighting up the fireplace.
We’ve been posting lots of pictures to Facebook this year, and here is a little photo album of how we’ve created this year’s intricate display over the last four days. Yep, this was all put together in only four days!
Come on out and visit us at the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show. It runs through Sunday, March 2nd, and has the most extensive collection of landscaping companies, ideas, and designers in the Portland area. You’ll be happy you came by.
