This show will have multiple feature areas ranging from outdoor kitchens, ponds, hardscaping and softscaping displays to inspire attendees to create a luxury retreat in their own backyard. It is simply the best source for everything outdoor home related, including landscapers, pond & deck builders; barbecues, smokers, grills and accessories; outdoor kitchens, fire features and appliances; swimming pools, courts and playgrounds; outdoor furniture, lighting & accessories; gardening products and plant materials; pergolas, gazebos, bunkies & sheds; foods, spices, sauces, condiments, beverages & more!
A few hot items you’ll find at this year’s show include:
Iron Embers Outdoor Fire Features – The Pyramid Outdoor Fireplace is the pinnacle of campfire containers (literally). The raised square base radiates heat down onto your feet all night long and the sloped mesh sides contain the fire in its natural shape: a pyramid. One side of the fireplace hinges out with a stainless spring handle located near the bottom to prevent it from getting too hot. The open design of the Pyramid provides an awesome view of the fire, all while keeping it well controlled. Using stainless steel mesh is unique to Iron Embers – in all their years they’ve never had a piece of mesh have a hole burned through! Combine that with a 1/4″ thick steel frame and you have a winning combination. Available in four sizes from 3’ to 6’ there’s a size to fit all spaces.

Riptide Cherry Cola (23%) is the perfect combination of sexy and sweet, combining 10X Distilled Vodka with natural cherry and cola for an adult take on this classic drink. Enjoy as on its own or combine with cola to create the perfect cocktail.
Sizzle Sauce – A deliciously versatile grilling sauce, marinade and condiment carefully crafted to enhance, not mask, the natural ﬂavours of your food.
Vegepod – A Vegepod is one of the easiest ways to garden and very easy to put together. Each size comes as a kit and packs down into a small box. You can put any size Vegepod on a stand that brings it to waist height which makes it harder for animals to ravage and also makes it easier on your back since there is no bending down. All Vegepods come with a canopy to protect your veggies from any type of pest and a water reservoir to collect any excess water. That water will be drawn back up into the soil using the wicking beds placed right above the reservoir whenever the veggies are thirsty. You will be amazed how fast and easy your veggies grow in a Vegepod!
