Here is a list of the exciting components of this year’s Home, Garden & Remodeling Show presented by Window World:

*The Belgard Hardscapes Outdoor Living Pavilion -- a 25,000 square foot space complete with 14 beautiful landscaped gardens, expert vendors with landscaping and outdoor living products, and a 50-foot display trailer with Belgard Hardscapes products.

*The Belgard Hardscapes Challenge is a friendly yet fun, competition that three local landscaping companies are participating in to see who uses the Belgard outdoor paving products in the best way, as judged by YOU! This year’s Challenge area is themed “Spend an Evening in Our Backyard” and will have the overhead lights dimmed so that the landscape lighting, fire pit, and other outstanding features will shine. See uniquely designed outdoor areas built by the three challengers: Bluegrass Pavers, Greenside Outdoor Services, and Picture Perfect Landscaping.

*Cooking Seminars return to the Seminar Stage! Trend Companies of Kentucky are hosting local chefs to share their secrets to divine recipes from some of Louisville’s favorite restaurants.
