The Maryland Home & Garden Show is returning to the Maryland State Fairgrounds, March 1-2 & 7-9. Both weekends, homeowners looking to spruce up for spring can browse landscaped gardens bursting with vibrant color and learn how to maintain their own gardens with tips and tricks from the experts.

Following this year’s theme, “Color My World,” the Show has three fresh ways for visitors to bring color to their own world. Homeowners can let the pros bring color to their home by consulting more than 300 home professionals, learn to color their world by attending dozens of illuminating seminars and bring some color home from the plant market and craft show.

With exciting new features and returning favorites, the spring 2014 Show has three fresh ways to color your world:

1. Let the pros bring color to your home and garden.

Fifteen of the region’s most talented landscapers will showcase their dazzling outdoor designs in vibrant gardens filled with blossoming flowers, relaxing patios, dramatic water features and cozy fire pits. Visitors can wander through the lush and lavish full-size environments that can be recreated in their own yards.

Homeowners looking to spruce up for spring can consult more than 300 professionals showcasing the latest products and offering innovative indoor and outdoor services, including those for decks and patios, kitchens and baths, cabinets and countertops, driveways and gutters, and pools and spas.

2. Learn to color your own world.

For the do-it-yourselfer, the Maryland Home & Garden Show offers dozens of opportunities to learn skills and techniques from the area’s leading experts. As a special feature during both weekends, Orioles’ Head Groundskeeper Nicole McFadyen – one of only two female head groundskeepers in all of Major League Baseball – will share useful tips and take audience questions on growing and maintaining grass like the Yard.

Throughout five days full of seminars, experts will cover other helpful topics from infusing color into your landscaping and dealing with invasive pests to remodeling your kitchen and working with an interior designer. Show visitors can also stop by the American Society of Interior Designers’ “Ask A Designer” booth for a complimentary consultation on remodeling and design dilemmas.

3. Bring some color home with you.

After a long winter, the Maryland Home & Garden Show makes it easy to bring a little color back into your life by shopping for beautiful plants, cut flowers and one-of-a-kind crafts for the home. During the second weekend of the Show, the Maryland Orchid Society and Baltimore Bonsai Club will display thousands of vivid flowers and miniature gardens for visitors to peruse and purchase. Both weekends, The Maryland Spring Craft Show will feature more than 125 craftspeople selling their unique, handmade creations that can add color to the home or garden.
