    Myself and a friend who owns another lawn and landscape company are thinking about putting on a home show this spring. There has not been a show for years around here because we live in a rural community of about 30,000.

    I can rent our ag center for one day for $600 and I'm thinking of charging $2 admission. Not sure what the price of booths will be or how big.

    We already have several businesses and realtors interested in doing this. Any advice on this or pictures of your booths. I need ideas for my booth. I was thinking of building a firepit, three columns and a seatwall with some shrubbery and mulch.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Put a patch of excellent grass up to waist/chest height so that the browsers can easily run the hands over it and say "Nice."
    Those are the type of memories people hold on to more than facts and figures, even with pictures...
    sounds like fun... :)
