What are your featured items this season?

"Mobile device controlled fire and water features, allowing you access at any place and time. Outdoor kitchens for garden to table cooking is hugely popular as well. Lastly, the permeable pavers you see in our display are an excellent 'green' choice to reduce runoff and utilize rainwater in your landscape gardens."

What is the strangest client request you've ever received?

"We love all our clients, did we mention that?! We had one client where we installed a fountain and pond, and we were asked to create a level pad, so he could sit under the waterfall in the middle of his koi pond! We also have helped pick out colors for painting in-home projects and installing doggy toilets as well! No two projects are the same!"

What is your favorite part of the Minneapolis Home + Garden Show?

"Our favorite part about the Home Show is that is the unofficial kickoff to Spring for us and the community. It is always fun to create unique designs off of a theme, and see what everyone comes up with. It is overall a fun show for both companies and the public to welcome Spring to Minnesota."
