here is a pic of the other side...the pavers are unilock 'tumbled' pavers. the stone behind it is rocky mountain quartz stone. very beautiful stone. we had some left over from a fall landscape install, so we decided to showcase it.

let me know what you think. i am looking for new ideas for next year.

booth cost $1700. no giveaways...always lead to chasing leads that would never purchase landscape services.



but we do make out well at these shows...just have to follow up on persons REALLY interested in what we have to offer.

Brian-
I'm interested in the pond... Did you build it the "real" way, or did you cut corners since it was a temporary setup? I assume you didn't cut much liner?

How long was the show? We have 2, 2 day shows next month, and I'd like to put a pond of some sort in, but have a very limited set up time. Both shows start on a Friday around 4, takedown is on Saturday after 4-5. Setup is mainly on Friday before hand, and could possibly get in late in the day on Thursday... One show we have 4 8x8 booth spaces, the other will be similar sized...

If we put in a pond, I'm thinking of just using black visquene (sp?), and using a couple of Little Wonder pumps, about 350 gph each... Kinda on a budget here, definately don't have $1700 to spend!:) We've got the hardscape stuff covered, leftovers from last years shows...

Any suggestions, anyone?

Looks nice ... Im getting excited about ours this year. We are going to leave one section that is not completed with some of our equipment in there. Bobcat...packer etc etc.. should be interesting.
There was a thread quite some time ago titled "growing grass in my basement" by a guy named stonhenge. Maybe Jodi could post a link to it?...I don't know how. I 'll ask her. If not...do a search under that title and author
