Moose Jaw’s second annual Better Homes and Gardens Expo on Saturday and Sunday was considered a success.
Adam Lix, a foreman member of the landscaping crew with Cornell Design and Landscaping, said the expo at the Moose Jaw Convention Centre was good exposure for the business.
“(There were) a lot of people coming by were interested in new products and plants,” said Lix. “(Cornell is) full on landscaping. We have a garden centre, tree nursery, all that. We do any landscaping contracting you can think of.”
Lix said Cornell travels to the Focus on Trade show in Moose Jaw every year. With the Better Homes and Gardens Expo, the company can go to two shows a year. At the expo, Lix said they had a bunch of new products available that a lot of people were asking questions about, particularly the succulent houseplants.
“Succulents have been very popular,” said Lix. “They’re flying off the shelves. People love them.”
He added other new products included brick kits, wall stones, lighting pillars and rubber driveway paving, which is to cover up cracks on driveways.
Lix said that the company would be coming back to the expo next year.
