Realtors Home & Garden Show

DH and I have gone to the Realtors Home & Garden Show each year for the past 3 years. For the past two years we've gotten a set of free tickets from our lovely realtor who sold our condo. Thanks Tammy!

Anyway, I've always enjoyed this show. The past two years we somewhat wandered around asking questions. This year, though, we were on a mission.

#1 Going to the "How to "Go Green" with your Lawn" solution seminar

#2 Visiting the Johnson's Nursery booth to get information on their "We Plan It, You Plant It" program.

#3 Getting estimates from people on what it would cost to get our hot water heater inspected (it's 12 years old, so we're pushing it right now).

And we basically walked out with that info. #1 added a few to-do items to our 2009 list (get our soil tested, aerate the lawn). The seminar was really informative. Even better, the guy who gave it is local to us, so we have him as a potential resource.

I need to get photographs and measurements of the area we want to have Johnson Nursery help us plan out - the stepping stone walkway we want to put in and the border garden on the fireplace wall.

And we found a local-ish plumber that does free inspections, though he didn't say what all is included in that. But that's a step in the right direction and I like free.
