On Wednesday January 17th the employees at Bret-Mar Landscape attended the 2013 Mid America Horticultural Trade Show. This year the MidAm Trade Show was held at Navy Pier in Chicago. The Trade show is open for three full days including educational sessions, social events, student career programs, and of course the trade show floor featuring exhibits in outdoor living, hardscapes, landscape supply, growers, services, equipment, and new product demonstration area.
At MidAm Bret-Mar was able to make contact with other industry leaders. We spoke about the past season and the forecast for this coming year. This show is meant to gear the landscape professionals up for the coming season. At MidAm we see what new products are available. We see new products from new and improved plant material to more efficient machinery.
We also saw some creative ideas for our customers and home show which will be the first weekend in March. Take a look at this picture…
This would be such a cute idea for a raised planter or accent on a brick paver patio! Groundcovers can add so many different textures and colors to a landscape. Check out this other picture of a fireplace made with old barn wood. What a cozy item to have in the back yard!
