“We’re trying to make gardening ‘pretty’ and ‘easy’ for everyone,” says Paul Waxman, Director of Marketing for Mahoney’s Garden Centers. “The event is 50% inspiration and 50% education – and with this early spring, the timing couldn’t be better! We’ll have so many experts here, we’ll be able to answer every imaginable plant and garden design question. No question is too simple or too tough.”

In addition to the educational tables, Amy VanDoren, Mahoney’s expert landscape designer, is offering a seminar on Saturday at 11:00 am called “Curb Appeal Strategies to Help Sell Your Home.” Geared toward those looking to sell their home, or those looking to buy, Van Doren will outline the many actions a homeowner can take to make the most dramatic and efficient improvements to their front and back yards. Solutions range in price from only a few hundred dollars to several thousand – it’s up to the homeowner.
