We’re excited to say the Capitol Remodel + Garden Show (held last weekend, February 26–28, at the Dulles Expo Center) was a rip roaring success. As northern Virginia’s hardscape designer, this event is something we look forward to every year — twice a year — where homeowners gather to find innovative products, new ideas, and practical advice from home improvement and remodeling professionals the region over. (And this year, from Jeff Lewis, too!)
Event attendees who visited the Grigg Design booth were treated to… well, quite the treat! Showcasing a beautiful flagstone patio, a custom-built fire pit, and a water feature, the true highlight here was this:
The introduction of a vertical garden wall
“What we wanted to do was show specifically what you can do in a small space — with what Steve [Grigg] calls vertical landscaping — or as an alternative to just putting up lattice as a screen,” said Juanita Grigg of this striking architectural element that had people stopping to photograph, or ask questions about all weekend. With this sort of vertical landscaping, any plain wall or fence can be turned into a ‘living wall’; it’s a trend that’s all the rage.
Perhaps we saw some of you there. We talked hardscaping, and landscaping too; you walked away with a lot of great ideas — and now it’s time to put those ideas into action! You know who to call:
