So much to explore at the 2018 Home & Garden Show Like going out to dinner with an old friend you haven’t seen in a while, The Columbus Dispatch Spring Home & Garden Show presented by Ohio Mulch returns Feb. 17-25 to the Ohio Expo Center. As with any good dinner conversation, you’ll learn plenty of new things at the show — and cover some familiar territory, too. Most of all, we want your trip to the show to be helpful, informative and memorable. Here’s a quick look at some of what we have in store.

Every Garden Tells A Story

Got A Project? Get Some Help

There’s nothing like a walk through the gardens to inspire you to create your own backyard oasis … or at least shore up the one you already have. Good news: You can take care of anything you need to get done while you’re at the show, which features two buildings full of the region’s top homeimprovement, remodeling and lawn and garden experts. These craftsmen and pros cover just about every specialty imaginable, and they’re all participating in the show to help you make your home and garden dreams come true. Numerous how-to and DIY stage presentations and seminars will be on tap so you can dive deeper into topics of interest to you. Among those sharing their expertise are folks from the Ohio State Master Gardener Program and Lowe’s, most notably on Sunday, Feb. 18, which is DIY Day at the show. So check the schedule in this section, grab a seat, take some notes and ask a question or two. We guarantee you’ll leave more knowledgeable than when you arrived.

Envision A New Relaxation Station

If you had just one more room in your home, what would you do with it? Use it for storage, a media room or a space to meditate? You’ll find three possibilities at this year’s show. Take a look at a trio of backyard retreats by Weaver Barns and Rine Landscape Group. In these fully constructed and designed “super sheds” you’ll find a wine and book nook, a backyard kitchen/pergola and a chic gardener’s retreat.

More Celebrities Than Ever

There are home improvement experts, and then there are EXPERTS. Tom Silva has been part of the “This Old House” crew since the Bob Vila days. Be at the show when he imparts his years of wisdom on Sunday, Feb. 18.

On opening day, Saturday, Feb. 17, the show welcomes the mother-daughter team of Karen Laine and Mina Starsiak Hawk from HGTV’s hot remodeling series “Good Bones.” That same afternoon, Cambria welcomes Matt Muenster of “Bath Crashers” to the show. Highly acclaimed garden author Tracy DiSabato-Aust from right here in central Ohio makes her way to the show on Wednesday, Feb. 18. On Saturday, Feb. 24, you won’t want to miss PJ and Thomas McKay, the hosts of HGTV’s “Down to the Studs.”

Child’s Play

Feb. 24 is also Kids Day at the Home & Garden Show. Bring your young ones and watch them be wowed by animals from Ohio Wildlife, as well as the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium. And while LEGOLAND Discovery Center won’t open at Easton Town Center until later this year, Bertie, the LEGOLAND mascot will make an appearance at the show. Children can let their imaginations run wild by building their own unique LEGO designs.

Eat, Drink & Be Merry

For the first time, the show is teaming up with Cox Concessions and Dine Originals to bring you Alive Craft Beer & Tastings Night on Thursday, Feb. 22, from 3:30 p.m. to close. For $10, you can sample five craft beers and different samples from participating Dine Originals restaurants. Find full details, including the craft beers that will be available, at DispatchHomeAndGardenShow.com. Additionally, the Club Cambria bar in the gardens will host a wine tasting each day starting at 4. The four unique selections will change daily — sample them for $10.

Deck Your Walls

Another new feature to this year’s show is a Pop Up Arts Fest at the Simple Bath Ohio Home Stage on Sunday, Feb. 25. The Columbus Arts Festival is inviting local artists to set up at the show so you can bring home your next living room or bedroom centerpiece. You’re sure to find something one of a kind!

Hours Saturdays, Feb. 17 & Feb. 24 and Monday, Feb. 19 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays, Feb. 18 & Feb. 25 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed Tuesday, Feb. 20 Wednesday Feb. 22-Friday, Feb. 23 Noon to 8 p.m.

The ornate, breathtaking gardens designed by members of the Columbus Landscape Association are the centerpiece of the show every year, and the 2018 edition is no exception. This time around, the theme is Storybook Gardens. Walk through all 10 and experience such titles as “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” “The Wind in the Willows,” “The Lorax” and more as they come to life. New this year is a partnership between the CLA and Columbus Metropolitan Library designed to raise youthreading awareness and give children another activity during the show. “Columbus Metropolitan Library is delighted to partner with some of central Ohio’s best landscapers to bring 10 storybook gardens to life,” said Gregg Dodd, marketing director for CML. “We hope these amazing gardens will get kids and families excited about reading, which is the foundation for a successful life.” The show will celebrate the Library on Monday, Feb. 19 — a day when schools are closed for Presidents Day. Many talented writers hail from or live in central Ohio, and the show will celebrate some of them on Library Day. A dozen authors are expected to appear, including Eric Litwin, author of the “Pete the Cat” children’s book series, who will make two stage presentations. The Library will also host readings near the gardens throughout the day. All kids can use a little boost to their spirits, so they won’t want to miss My Special Word, a stage presentation designed to empower children to believe in themselves and get them thinking

about the wonderful people they are — and hope to become — through the use of positive words. They can catch Columbus native Dwight Smith’s presentation twice on Feb. 19.

Personal tastes trump trends in interior design by jim weiker DISPATCH MEDIA GROUP

With that in mind, here are five ways to make your home more stylish in 2018.

What will central Ohio’s well-dressed homes be wearing this year? Look for colors, texture and tradition mixed with some flair. The farmhouse look? Um, not so much. “If I ever have to look at that again, I’ll cry,” said Angela Bonfante, owner of Angela Bonfante Kitchens in Upper Arlington. “I’m not doing any shiplap; it’s been done so much. People are tired of looking at it.” Still, don’t get too hung up on trends in central Ohio. The region isn’t known for cutting-edge design, and besides, even among professional decorators, no single look dominates. “The golden rule in design is not what is in and what is out,” said Neal Hauschild, owner of Nth Degree Home in Gahanna. “What matters first and foremost is what the client wants, needs, has already, loves, feels good in, feels attached to. We work with that first and the actual space is second.”

• Color

Each year color experts pick a shade that seems guaranteed to never actually appear in a home. This year, the giant of the business, Pantone, identified the deep purplish “ultra-violet” as the color of the year. While ultra-violet itself may not grace many walls, don’t be surprised to see strong and dark colors pushing aside beige and vanilla, especially on accent walls or furniture. “We’ll see more bold colors, more saturated colors,” said Kellie Toole, owner of Kellie Toole Interior Design in New Albany. “I’m seeing more pinks and greens also. ... A lot of it comes from everybody going gray for so long.”

Bright lights

The bare-bulb industrial look is dimming. In its place are big, eye-catching light fixtures. “Edison bulbs have reached their peak. That’s

Flowers

Your grandmother would be happy. Flowers are in. Look for bright garden patterns on furniture, pillows and other accents for a warmer, more traditional look. “Floral patterns are coming back. Traditional in general is starting to make a comeback,” Wilson said. “People want a lot more of that comfort at home and that traditional styling — floral prints on a pillow or chair, or a brightly colored sofa.”

Stained wood

Painted cabinets have cooked in the kitchen the past few years, but wood cabinets are sneaking back in. Light stains in simple styles are becoming especially popular, said designers. According to the latest design survey by the website Houzz, Shaker cabinet styles are the most popular in the country, followed by flat-panel. “Painted cabinets have been the way to go for the past six or seven years,” Bonfante said. “We’re going to see more stained wood — people want something different.”

®

Texture

Lush fabrics, leathered countertops, coarse wallpaper — texture is in, smooth is out. “Look for rich textile fabrics like velvet this year, bringing in that softness we haven’t seen much lately,” Wilson said. Preferred Hotel Partner

muenster gives ‘Crash’ course in bathroom makeovers

Disaptch Special Sections | Friday, February 16, 2018

by jim weiker DISPATCH MEDIA GROUP

T6

As host of the DIY Network show “Bath Crashers,” Matt Muenster spent almost six years championing lavish bathroom makeovers. Under his guidance, ho-hum baths were turned into spa-like retreats, tricked out with multiple shower heads, espresso machines, nickel sinks, televisions, marble vanities and heated floors and towel racks. “I’m not good with being bored, so we pushed it,” said Muenster, who will speak Saturday at the Dispatch Spring Home & Garden Show. “We tried to incorporate some luxuries to give you a reason to go and stay a while. I like the idea of creating an oasis in your house beyond the usual tub, sink and toilet.” But Muenster is also a practical small-town Midwesterner who knows most people aren’t going to install chandeliers above their toilets. “A 300-square-foot bathroom isn’t

everyone’s reality,” said Muenster, who grew up on a farm near Green Bay, Wisconsin. For those mere mortals, Muenster will offer some advice during Saturday’s show. “The first thing everyone can do is just declutter,” he said. “If you don’t use it every day, get rid of it. Decluttering is the biggest facelift you can give a bathroom. The second one is music, it doesn’t take up any space. Adding music into the bathroom changes the game; it’s real easy.” Muenster also offers words of caution to homeowners tackling bathroom makeovers. “A bathroom is a high-performance room,” he said. “It’s the hardest room in your house to renovate, kitchens included. ... If you ever said the sentence, ‘I think I can do plumbing,’ you can’t, so don’t. It’s fine to hire the pros for that, especially for anything involving wires behind wet walls.” After a long stretch on homeimprovement television, including

stints on “BATHtastic!,” “Ellen’s Design Challenge” and “Blog Cabin,” in addition to “Bath Crashers,” Muenster is pursuing his own ventures from his home outside the Twin Cities. He has his own production company and frequently travels for home shows and other events. “I’m having a blast right now,to be honest. If TV happens again, great, but I’m exploring things I never had the opportunity to do while on television.”

‘Good Bones’ duo have a head for business on renovating neglected homes in the Fountain Square and nearby BatesHendricks neighborhoods. Four years ago, a production company approached the pair with a surprise suggestion: Would they be interested in filming a pilot for HGTV? The 2015 show was a success, leading to the first full season of “Good Bones” the following year. Laine and Starsiak Hawk are filming the third season, which will air in March. “This is where we’ve gotten our stride and figured out how to mesh our business and show and keep it going,” Starsiak Hawk said. The show’s formula remains largely unchanged, chronicling Laine and Starsiak Hawk as they buy, renovate and sell extremely neglected, often uninhabited homes. “I don’t like to be called a flipper,” said Laine, who lived above a campus bar while attending Ohio State University years ago. “That’s not what we do. We’ve chosen a neighborhood that’s down at the heels and needs a lot of work. We

buy the homes no one wants. We stay in one small area. It’s our neighborhood too.” Unlike other home-improvement shows, “Good Bones” tackles homes that are often “sinking into the ground,” as Starsiak Hawk puts it, damaged from rotted framing, stripped interiors, water-soaked roofs and months of critter infestation. Laine and Starsiak Hawk have brought about 60 such dilapidated abodes back to life, and have thrown in the towel on only one. Despite the challenges, the tandem said they’ve made money on all the homes, but said it’s getting harder. A booming housing market coupled with investors’ efforts have made it more difficult to find homes in their target range of $50,000 or $60,000. “In Fountain Square, there’s rarely a property we can afford, but that’s good,” Starsiak Hawk said. “It’s not good for us, but it’s good for the neighborhood.” The show is going well, and the pair hope it continues. But they are

They are considering opening a warehouse store to build upon the line of merchandise they offer. They envision a Two Chicks and a Hammer real-estate company, and maybe a landscaping business to build on Laine’s master gardener background. In the meantime, they’ll keep the two jobs they now have.

By JIM WEIKER Dispatch MeDia Group As owners of the Indianapolis construction company Two Chicks and a Hammer, Karen Laine and her daughter, Mina Starsiak Hawk, have a busy job. As stars of the HGTV show “Good Bones,” they have another. “When we started the show, we were naive and thought the camera would just follow us around,” Starsiak Hawk said. “But we quickly learned that running a business is a full-time job and doing a TV show is another full-time job.” The mother-daughter tandem will discuss their transformation from home contractors to home-improvement TV stars during a Saturday, Feb. 17, appearance at The Dispatch Spring Home & Garden Show. Laine, 57, and Starsiak Hawk, 33, got a taste of home renovation in 2006 and 2007, when they overhauled their own houses in Indianapolis’ Fountain Square neighborhood. That experience led in 2008 to Two Chicks and a Hammer, which focuses

‘Property Lovers’ find their stride after HGTV pilot

Disaptch Special Sections | Friday, February 16, 2018

By JIM WEIKER Dispatch MeDia Group

PJ and Thomas McKay will arrive in Columbus next week with a message: There is life after HGTV. Last summer, the couple, who call themselves the “Property Lovers,” filmed an HGTV pilot called “Down to the Studs” about renovating Thomas’ childhood home in Cleveland, Tennessee. The network did not pick up the show, but that doesn’t seem to have slowed down the pair. They are renovating two homes, pursuing a merchandise line, building an online presence and traveling across the country for appearances. Their travels will bring them to the Dispatch Spring Home & Garden Show on Saturday, where they will talk about filming an HGTV show, renovating homes and what it was like to be a gay couple to star in a reality show. The married couple knew the odds were against them when they filmed

the pilot. “HGTV airs something like 60 pilots a year, and only one or two end up making it, so we were disappointed at first, but we didn’t have any real expectation that we would be picked up,” said Thomas, 26, a designer. But their appearance nonetheless paid off. “It opened the door for so many opportunities,” added P.J., 31, a realestate agent who started flipping homes a decade ago. “Our social media has turned into a full-time job. We’re doing all kinds of collaborations with different companies such as Pottery Barn. We’re going to three countries to speak. It started out so small but it’s turned into a business.” The couple remain in contact with production companies and HGTV, which invited them to participate in an online show, “Clash of the Crafters.” The McKays will talk about life in front of the HGTV camera during their Columbus appearance, and pass

along lessons from their own home renovations and flips. “Sometimes TV makes it seem like such an easy business,” P.J. said. “You can just go out and in a few weeks earn a quick $50,000, but you have to know the business or you’ll lose thousands of dollars in your first flip. It boils down to whether the house is a good buy is not.” It also helps if the house is presented well after the renovations. Homes featured on the couple’s “Property Lovers” website demonstrate a pleasing blend of new and old style that doesn’t sacrifice warmth. “We really want the homes to feel welcoming and inviting,” Thomas said. “We don’t want them to feel like you can’t touch everything. We want them to feel lived in.” The McKays’ TV heroes are “Fixer Upper” couple Chip and Joanna Gaines. They admire the couple not only for their commercial success but also the way they portray a good marriage. Thomas and PJ were married in the

Visibility is always important.”

Contractor has played big role in enduring success of ‘This Old House’

By JIM WEIKER Dispatch MeDia Group Before “House Hunters,” before “The Property Brothers,” before “Love It or List It,” there was “This Old House.” The PBS show about renovating vintage homes debuted in 1979, 15 years before the birth of HGTV. Tom Silva, 71, has been there almost since the beginning.

is something like three to five years. We’ve been on 40 years. The information we give is proven, trusted. We teach people. I think that’s a big deal. Q: As a contractor, what’s the most important advice you would give homeowners tackling a renovation? A: Everybody always want the best of everything, but unfortunately your budget always doesn’t allow that. But the things you don’t see are the things you don’t want to cut back on. The things you don’t see are what make the house perform and last and allow you to live in it more cheaply forever. Things like the windows, the insulation, the type of heating and cooling system, how a home is structured, the framing, the siding. Q: Are old houses better built than new ones? A: There’s so many different changes, and a lot have been improvements. The old houses are not better than the new houses, but the material is different. The wood is from tighter growth old lumber. Now they are younger trees, they take on moisture faster, the

trim won’t hold up like it did years ago because it’s a different type of wood, so we have manufactured trim like Boral or Azek. But you can have the best of materials and if you don’t prep it right, it won’t hold up. You can buy two different paints, for instance, the most expensive and the cheapest, and if you use the best paint and don’t follow any rules or the cheapest and prep it right, 90 percent of the time the cheap paint will hold up better. Q: What will you talk about in your Columbus visit? A: I’ll talk about the show, and show some recent projects, answer some questions and talk about the Generation Next idea. We’ve teamed up with Mike Rowe, with the “Dirtiest Jobs” show, to try to get kids into the trades. Right now, there are about 5 million jobs that can’t be filled because there’s a lack of people coming into the trades. For you to find someone to work on your house is going to get harder and harder and harder.

spoNsor Feature

riterug has it covered when it comes to flooring

Disaptch Special Sections | Friday, February 16, 2018

By Jarrod Ulrey Dispatch MeDia Group

T16

Being one of the biggest and most successful companies of its kind in the nation can have its advantages. Based in Whitehall and ranked No. 5 in the U.S. in sales in 2016 at more than $243 million, RiteRug has the resources and the know-how to put on a good performance when it needs to. The display the company will bring for The Columbus Dispatch Home & Garden Show, as has been the case in past years, will resemble a ministore in size. It’s a source of pride for the company, which was established in 1934 and has expanded to 32 locations mostly in the Midwest and Southeast parts of the U.S. “We’ve gotten ‘Best in Show,’” said Larry Noel, RiteRug’s president of retail sales. “You’ve got a huge display so that people can shop there. We try

to make sure people can see a lot of the new styles and some of the bestselling carpet when they’re walking around, and they can come right in.” RiteRug specializes in producing multiple flooring options, including carpet, hardwood, laminate, vinyl and tile, as well as granite and quartz custom countertops. It also offers carpet and upholstery cleaning, hardwood refinishing and window treatments. From a product perspective, among RiteRug’s most popular are its luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile, which according to the company’s website, mimics “the beauty of hardwood, tile and stone.” “(We have) a lot of the newer styles, like the luxury vinyl plank that looks like hardwood,” Noel said. “It comes in longer strips, is very durable and is 100 percent water proof. We have a tremendous amount of stain-resistant flooring from all price points, from budget friendly to

luxury products. Most of them have a lifetime stain warranty. They’ve made so many advancements in flooring and carpet.” Rite Rug offers hundreds of carpet options in styles that include pattern, texture/plush/twist and loop/Berber. They come in numerous colors and feature nylon, polypropylene and wool. Visible soil and vacuum marks on carpet can be minimized by some of the texture or pattern options offered by RiteRug. Berber carpets, which are hand woven and come in traditional and modern designs and feature numerous knotting patterns, are particularly popular products. “California Berber is very family friendly and looks good,” Noel said. “It has a lot of color and is absolutely beautiful.” When the first RiteRug store opened at the corner of Cherry and High streets in downtown Columbus

more than 80 years ago, the average home had a hardwood floor and the occasional rug. As home needs have grown, tastes have evolved to include the fashionable and functional. And as the market has expanded, so too, has what RiteRug has tried to produce. “We are the largest independent flooring retailer in America when you consider that the top four are all owned by Wall Street,” Noel said. “We’re the only private company left. Nobody else does what we do when you take a look around and see our display.” Visit RiteRug at Booths S200 and S300 at the Home & Garden Show.

Garden Show celebrates life of local gardening guru

Disaptch Special Sections | Friday, February 16, 2018

By alliSon Ward The ColUmBUS diSpaTCh

T26

Although Tom McNutt had nearly four successful decades in the agriculture industry — as a 4-H agent, highschool educator and Franklin County extension chairman — he didn’t hit his stride until after retirement. That’s when he found television. McNutt became a “rock star” as the gardening expert for the weekend morning team at WCMH-TV (Channel 4) in 1988, said Colleen Marshall, a longtime anchor with the station. The job is one he figured he might do for a year or two, but he stayed at it for 23 years. “I’d be with him at public events, and people came up to him in droves,” Marshall said. “He was knowledgeable, but people felt they were his friends.” The horticulture guru — who spent Saturday mornings chatting with bumblebees, wading through ponds and getting his hands dirty for the sake of viewers — died Dec. 13 of

pneumonia and complications from the muscle disease inclusion body myositis, which he battled for 20 years. McNutt was 84. Beyond helping generations of central Ohioans develop green thumbs, the Hilliard resident endeared himself to fans with his folksy humor, said Larry Burchfield, owner of Cedarbrook Landscaping & Garden Center in Powell. When Burchfield was a teenager, McNutt was his 4-H supervisor. The two developed a friendship that Burchfield said helped foster his own career in horticulture. “He knew his product from his education and experience, but he could present it to people in a humorous way,” said Burchfield, adding that McNutt often dressed in costume for segments. “I always had fun with Tom, and it was never anything serious.” McNutt was a Hardin County native who graduated with an agriculture degree from Ohio State University in 1955 and a master’s in agricultural

education in 1962. He was an avid supporter of his alma mater, especially OSU sports. McNutt was often interviewed as chairman of the Franklin County Cooperative Extension Service — the post he retired from in 1988 — and during his time as Franklin County Fair spokesman. Still, his knowledge spoke for itself. Despite his lack of experience on the air — he never took a broadcast-

ing class — he excelled on the screen, Marshall said. “He was a natural.” And few people could match him in gardening expertise. “He never had anyone call in who he didn’t have an answer for,” Marshall said. “I never heard, ‘I’ll look that up and get back to you.’” This article was originally published in its entirety in the Columbus Dispatch in December 2017.

arrow roofing & Siding on point in growth By Jarrod Ulrey Dispatch MeDia Group With an A-plus rating by the Better Business Bureau and with an eye on the latest technological advancements of its industry, Arrow Roofing & Siding has seen extensive growth in recent years. First and foremost, though, is that the company takes pride in being family owned and operated since 1987. “(Our company is) more personal and more thorough,” said Brian Shields, general manager for Arrow Roofing & Siding. “We look at everything and are not just order takers. We come out and try to solve your problem for you. When there are storms, we work with every insurance company so we can get the best products on your roof. “We’ll work on an apartment building that’s been on fire and work on flip houses now. We’ll do pretty much

everything.” Arrow Roofing & Siding is among the sponsors of The Columbus Dispatch Home & Garden Show and will bring a miniature house with gutters and insulation to the event, which traditionally provides the company with 150-200 leads according to Shields. Located at 116 Norton Road on the west side of Columbus, Arrow offers repair, replacement, inspection, maintenance and new construction on roofs and provides the option of asphalt or fiberglass shingles along with copper, flat, metal, slate or tile roofs. It also offers siding repair and replacement with options of vinyl and aluminum, cedar, cement board, steel, stucco and trim & molding. Other services the company provides include window installation and replacement, patio door solutions, gutter replacement and repairs, and help with home remodeling in the

areas of kitchens, bathrooms, basements, porches, fences and additions. “When Arrow started, we did mainly roofing for residential properties,” said Josh O’Brien, who is the president and owner of Arrow Roofing & Siding. “The last 15 to 20 years as it’s grown, we started going to more gutters and siding and full general contracting. The last five or six years, we’ve done a lot of property management on a lot of new housing and new construction and we also do commercial work. “I’ve personally owned it for nine years. I actually worked for the owner when it started in 1987. We realized there was an untapped business in commercial work. You can drive around anywhere in Columbus and see the projects we’re doing.” Among the cutting-edge products in the roofing industry are Thermoplastic polyolefin single-ply roofing membranes, also called TPO. They are known to provide resistance to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure

and help provide better ventilation. “(TPO) reflects everything, so that makes the building more energy efficient,” O’Brien said. The addition of products such as this has helped Arrow Roofing & Siding grow by about 15 percent in sales each of the last two years. Arrow’s client base includes what its official website calls a “multitude of property types, including industrial buildings, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, shopping malls, banks, offices, theaters, churches, restaurants, retail shops and entertainment venues.” “We’ve grown over 30 percent the last couple years, and the commercial work we do has helped with that,” Shields said. Visit Arrow at Booth No. 130.


backyard studios will inspire your passion pointed two other structures — a quiet place to read, or relax with friends and a place to plan and work on your garden. “We wanted people to see this as a fun and whimsical feature, so we named it Magical Backyard Retreats,” he said. The three central structures in the Backyard Magical Retreat are provided by Weaver Barns, makers of handcrafted quality structures perfect for a backyard escape. But it is the landscaping and staging/styling that will inspire guests. Landscaping is designed and installed by Rine Landscape Group of Columbus. Rine’s design approach creates and open feel around the kitchen, includes a central water feature and an outdoor theater and lawn that connect the environment. They selected hardscape material from Oberfields featuring their travertine floor pavers and Rosetta Kodah knee walls.

The Backyard Kitchen accessories and styles come from Pottery Barn, with a live-edge ash table from Pathway Tables in the outdoor dining room under the pergola. The Wine & Book Nook is styled by Edwin Loy Home with a design goal of creating an unexpected surprise when you open the door — fresh, airy and light, to relax and enjoy the solitude of your favorite author or vineyard, or to share a few laughs with friends. And Hoover Gardens is styling the Gardener’s Cottage as a mixed use space for garden lovers — to relax and tend to everything from planning to

planting. “We want guests to be inspired to think about a magical retreat for themselves in their own backyard by exploring this vignette,” Zonars said. The possibilities are endless for your own backyard retreat — a studio for art, writing, painting, photography, knitting, or a kids playroom.

The inspiration for this 2018 Home Feature originated from a story in The Dispatch on Backyard Boxes, with a twist. “We wanted to show visitors at the Home & Garden Show how they could use mini-structures and studios right in their own backyard as a place to delve into their passion or hobby,” said Stephen Zonars, VP with the Home & Garden Show. “Our vision of a backyard studio is a quiet space — a retreat from your primary home — to relax and enjoy what you love to do, whatever that is,” he said. The Home & Gardens show selected three backyard themes after discussion with industry experts and former attendees of the show. “We learned from a company that builds high-quality Amish structures that their best seller is an outdoor kitchen with an attached, vaulted pergola,” said Zonars.

Rosati Windows fits all styles and budgets

By ReBecca WalteRs Dispatch MeDia Group

T28

Windows set the tone for house. And there’s no question that the latest in window design trends is all about bringing the outside in and creating seamless transitions. But when it comes to replacing existing windows, customers are just as concerned about making sure their investment is not only stylish but smart in terms of energy efficiency and security. That’s why Mike Rosati, owner and founder of Columbus-based Rosati Windows, likes the fact that he and his staff get to meet people in person when they come to the annual Columbus Dispatch Spring Home & Garden Show. That’s where conversations get started and they can show prospective customers the importance of learning about windows that fit their needs

and their budgets. Rosati Windows, which specializes in the sale, service, installation and manufacture of replacement windows, starts from scratch and works with homeowners to come up with the perfect design that is both functional and fashionable. The process starts at the Rosati Windows showroom, which is also home to the manufacturing plant. There is no middleman, so the windows are often more affordable than people anticipate. Finding and buying replacement

windows starts with picking colors and styles. Windows generally come in vinyl or wood, and just about any color or stain you can imagine. Some folks like the warmth of wood, while others opt for vinyl. When it comes to glass, the sky is the limit. “There are all kinds of glass and shapes — from squares and diamonds to ovals and grids. Exterior colors are important. Rosati can even match a homeowner’s colors at its facility. Like major appliances, windows do not need to be replaced very often – about every 20 years. But high quality windows should never have to be replaced, Rosati said. “You really should never have to buy another window. There’s no question that we are responsible for the service and construction of a the window. We can build the best window out there,” he said. Think windows are too costly to

replace? Think again. Windows can be replaced one window at a time or one face (side of a house) at a time. It all depends on a homeowner’s budget. “We are the factory, so we are able to stay competitive and offer lower prices because there is no middle man. We go straight to the customer.” If security is a concern, there are custom windows that can be had, Rosati said, including multipoint locks for sliding glass doors as well as highgrade glass that is very resistant to breaking. From millennials to baby boomers, Rosati can accommodate style and budget concerns. “We want people to have a good buying experience. We know people don’t have time to mess around, and there are no high-pressure sales,” he said. Stop by the Rosati Windows Booths 114, 116, 118, 120, 215, 217, 219, 221 at Home & Garden Show.

ohio Mulch expands product line to meet demand By Jarrod Ulrey Dispatch MeDia Group

ful product for consumers as well. “All of our mulches use vegetable food dye, so it doesn’t hurt plants or pets,” Frost said. “When you use All Bark Cypress, because it’s very soft, it retains a lot of moisture which helps during those times when it’s dry.” Ohio Mulch will have many of its products on display at The Columbus Dispatch Home & Garden Show in February. In addition to mulches that come in colors such as black, brown, red and gold, Ohio Mulch offers bulk stone products used for steppers, pavers and garden accents, multiple soil options used for planting, and garden

tools for various projects. Ohio Mulch opened its first retail store in April of 1984 in Blacklick, and in the fall of 1991, owner Jim Weber II began manufacturing his own hardwood mulches. In July of 1997, Ohio Mulch opened in Homerville, Georgia, where the company produces Cypress, Pine and Cedar mulch that is shipped to Ohio. There are 24 retail stores as well as production facilities in Georgia, Kentucky and Ohio. “Ohio Mulch has a plant in Georgia where we produce (the trees),” Frost said. “Homerville is part of the largest group of yellow pines in America. When you cut down a cypress tree, it automatically repopulates itself. We ship products all over the country.” Vist Ohio Mulch at Booths 109 and 2100.

Disaptch Special Sections | Friday, February 16, 2018

Among the biggest goals Ohio Mulch has set out to accomplish involves creating enough products to meet the numerous landscape needs of customers. Having 16 different mulch products goes a long way toward helping the company reach that objective. “We have the ability to adapt to whatever our customers demand,” said Ron Frost, who has been Ohio Mulch’s director of retail sales since 2008. “The key component to us is that we go full circle. We have a large wholesale factory, and we’re also the manufacturer.” While Ohio Mulch offers other products besides the one in its title, its variety of mulches might be its biggest strength. Its 100-percent All Bark Cypress mulch is one that Frost believes can be a difference maker to consumers

looking for a well-rounded product. Considered “lightweight, fluffy and generally darker than premium cypress mulch” according to the company’s website, all Bark Cypress has the ability to retain its color for an extended period and has numerous other positives to the beds it is placed in. As its name suggests, it’s comprised solely of Cypress tree bark. “It’s unique because it’s from the bark of the tree, so it lasts longer,” Frost said. “It has a natural bug repellant due to a natural oil. It smells extremely good to humans, but bugs do not like it. It lasts at least two years versus a normal mulch that will only last one year. It lasts for a long period of time, which is why the product has grown. It’s a soft-shredded material, and from a 100 percent organic standpoint, being all bark makes it a really wonderful mulch.” According to Frost, All Bark Cypress has other qualities that make it a help-

Treasures around home, yard can be repurposed for growing By DIana LoCkwooD For The Columbus DispaTCh For us gardeners, a penny saved is a penny — well, a penny that can help buy the next plant that we fall in love with. Making the most of every cent is part of the job for Peter Lowe, landscape manager at Dawes Arboretum. Lowe recently shared some of his favorite money- and time-saving tips for home gardeners.

Look locally

Recycle this newspaper

Place one or two layers on the ground before you spread mulch, and you’ll create a cheap, biodegradable

In partnership with the Columbus Landscape association and Columbus Metropolitan Library, 10 storybook gardens will be on display at 2018 Columbus Dispatch Spring Home & Garden Show. Participating landscape companies will present their interpretation of the following children’s storybooks: “The Tortoise and the Hare,” “Charlotte’s web,” “The adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” “The Secret Garden,” “Hansel & Gretel,” “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom,” “The Lorax,” “The wind and the willows,” “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “Pete the Cat: I Love My white Shoes.”

weed suppressor. If you’re starting a new flower or vegetable bed, he suggests placing three to five layers of newspaper over existing turf and a layer of cardboard.

Save your soil

Drainage holes in pots and containers are a mixed blessing: They let out excess water, but potting soil often goes along with it. Lowe offers an easy solution: a coffee filter, which you can place over a drainage hole inside a pot.

Transform a stump

Stuck with an old stump or an unwieldy log? Consider turning it into a free, unique and eco-friendly planter, Lowe suggests. If it’s already hollowed out, fill the opening with potting medium and plant flowers, ferns or even veggies, depending on the amount of sun. Otherwise, you can carve a hole with an ax or sharp trowel.

“The Tortoise and the Hare,” by Aesop

“Chicka Chicka Boom Boom,” by Bill Martin Jr. & John Archambault

Cedarbrook Nursery’s garden brings an updated twist to the fable of The Tortoise and the Hare. Once upon a time, there was the tortoise and the hare, who lived in a forest far, far way. But the story has changed, and like everybody else the characters have changed — they have been liberated. Now, the turtle is a Ninja Turtle, and the hare is Roger Rabbit, which should even out the playing field. As you enter Cedarbrook’s garden, you will feel as if you have been transported into a fantasy that is full of fun and relaxation. Ninja Turtle and Roger Rabbit are getting into their respective cars. The Big Race is beginning and bragging rights travel fast, so stay out of the mud.

We don't expect you to crash an old car in your yard as a lawn ornament or put banners up for races. But we would like you to take this lesson of sorts into the garden with you. The goal is to slow down, so you can smell the roses and tip-toe through the tulips. Most of all, we want you to imagine how you can transform your backyard garden into a mystical world, one in which you will want to come home each day to unwind — and have a glass of wine.

Five Seasons Landscape Management invites you to its storybook garden with inspiration gleaned from the popular children’s book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, which teaches little ones their numbers and letters. As in the book, the most prominent feature of the garden will be a large coconut tree, atop which all of the letters of the alphabet will be perched. Numbers will be displayed throughout the garden along walkways and on walls. Other features of the garden will include pergola, or palapa hut, which is an open-sided structure with a thatched roof (picture a tiki hut on a tropical beach.) Varied annual and perennial flowers as well as spring bulbs will adorn areas

Disaptch Special Sections | Friday, February 16, 2018

Chipped wood and bark from a felled or fallen tree — as long as it’s not diseased or infested — make excellent mulch, Lowe said. If a tree company is chipping a large specimen in your neighborhood, don’t hesitate to ask them, either.

Storybook gardens come to life

“The Lorax,” by Dr. Seuss

“The Secret Garden,” by Frances Hodgson Burnett

The Lorax is a powerful book that provokes a call to action to conserve the earth’s precious and finite natural resources. And the world is at risk of losing the Brown Bar-ba-loots, Swornee Swams, Humming-Fish and Truffula Trees. This garden will display an oversized opened book, measuring 16 feet by 8 feet, that will welcome visitors into this storybook garden. Two lawn panels symbolize the pages of the book curving into the spine like two giant waves. A bookmark will stand upright between the pages inscribed with the quote “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” A path alongside the book will lead visitors into the garden. A street sign

will read “The Street of the Lifted Lorax.” Truffula Trees will guide your way to the place where the Lorax once stood before someone lifted the him away. A large stump will be surrounded by a small pile of rocks, with one word, “unless,” engraved in one of the rocks.

The story centers on a secret, walled garden that had been locked and hidden away from the world because of an accident. Through the love of gardening, however, this garden helps Mary heal after she lost her parents in an accident. The garden has previously been locked and kept from the world because Mary’s uncle lost his wife to a tragic incident that happened there. The Secret Garden is about rediscovery, rejuvenation and rebirth through the love of gardening that helps heal a family. Each spring the Home and Garden Show is a spark that winter is almost over and spring will soon be returning. When visitors enter Landscape Design Solutions’ Secret Garden through a large walled gate, their

senses will be rejuvenated that spring is returning soon. The Secret Garden will have close to 1,000 flowers comprised of hyacinths, tulips, rhododendrons, magnolia and roses.

“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” by Mark Twain

“The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” by Eric Carle

Welcome to Oakland Nurseries’ storybook garden and take a stroll down the Mississippi River with Huckleberry Finn and his friend Jim, who are in search of adventure on a makeshift raft. As you enter the garden, notice that Huck and Jim have found a spot under the canopies of graceful weeping willows to camp for the night. The limestone of the river’s edge is woven throughout hemlocks, river birch, redbuds and flowering crabs, making for a secure, cozy camp. Rhododendrons, azaleas and lovely perennials are amassed around a lazy waterfall. A stately weeping Norway spruce and a burgundy cutleaf weeping Japanese maple direct you further down the path. The raft is tied up on the shore with a canvas tent for cover from the rain along the river. Norway spruce and white pine conceal the

raft and direct you down the river to the campsite, where a small pool makes for great fishing as Huck and Jim could use a nice fish dinner. More pines, spruce and river birch lead you away from the camp to continue your adventure.

The caterpillar in Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar ate just about everything he came across. — apples, plums, even pizza. In real life, caterpillars are very picky eaters and only eat a couple of types of plants. Because of that, butterflies only lay their eggs on these plants. Riepenhoff has incorporated several host plants into its storybook garden. Apples, cherries, flowering dogwoods and azaleas all serve as host plants for specific butterfly species. American elms also provide cooling shade for humans while serving as host plants. Riepenhoff’s garden features a painted lady butterfly habitat, in which visitors will find these beautiful creatures in various stages of their lifecycle — adults, caterpillars and eggs. While the adult butterflies are feeding on nectar from various flowers, the caterpillars will be busy feeding on their favorite

food — Canadian thistle. Although these butterflies are contained to their habitat, this garden is a wonderful example of how you can create an attractive, low-maintenance butterfly garden in your own yard. Providing nectar plants is important, but start by feeding The Very Hungry Caterpillar.


Seely’s Landscape Nursery “The Wind and the Willows,” by Kenneth Grahame

ful bluestone patio is encompassed in stone seating walls, formal boxwood hedges, tall arborvitae screens, fragrant white crabapple trees, azaleas and flowering bulbs. It creates a perfect spot to gaze upon the pond, relax and enjoy afternoon teatime with friends.

“Hansel & Gretel,” by the Brothers Grimm Shearer Patio & Landscape Service’s storybook garden depicts the tale of Hansel and Gretel. Entrance pavers of cobblestones are aligned under a birch bough trellis that crosses over a wooden bridge with a meandering stream. A woodcutter's woodpile and axe in the forest represent the father's work. The main element of our garden is the witch's house, which will have a pitched roof and decorated candy exterior. Inside will be a mural of Gretel pushing the witch into the oven and Hansel in a cage. Also inside, visitors will find a pair of witch's glasses smeared with butter (so she couldn't see) and a chicken bone (Hansel's finger). The center of the garden features a wishing-well pond with proceeds benefitting Ronald McDonald House.

Planting beds will be filled with rhododendrons, hydrangea, hostas and ferns — all inside a wall of evergreens. The planting areas are lined with vertical logs to create a woodland feel, along with forest animals in the garden. There will also be a huge chocolate egg in the garden filled with gold coins.

This year Seely’s will create a garden that places you in the many adventures of Mole, Ratty, Badger and the rich and extravagant Mr. Toad — all characters in The Wind in the Willows. The garden begins in the pastures of an English countryside. Weathered sandstone rocks line the worn cobblestone pathway. Along the way are old English gardens with split-rail fencing nestled amongst rhododendron, azaleas, forsythias, perennials and spring bulbs. The first thing visitors will notice is a long and winding babbling brook. A wooden bridge takes you across a creek to the pond where Ratty and Mole have pulled their rowboat up on the shore, where the winds blow through large and graceful weeping willow trees. The pathway leads to the formal garden of Mr. Toad’s mansion. Here a beauti-

Hiring a contractor? Start with trust

T34

Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you can make, and most homeowners will tell you that from the time they purchase their home, there’s always something that needs to be done. From small improvements like painting and carpet, to major updates like roofing and windows, choosing someone to complete these projects is a big decision. Selecting the right contractor for home improvement projects has an added layer of trust involved, as you are inviting a company into your personal space. When choosing vendors, don’t underestimate the importance of referrals from friends and family, and conduct an online search through organizations like the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, the Federal Trade Commission and your Better Business Bureau. BBB knows well the importance of providing consumers with accurate information about the trustworthiness of businesses; in fact, BBB has been at the forefront of making sure consumers “Start with Trust” as they make important decisions on who they hire.

At bbbhomehelp.com, BBB makes it easy to map out what to remember when hiring a contractor, resources for planning your project and tips for budgeting. On this site you can also find local, trustworthy businesses and request pricing information from them. BBB also recommends these tips when hiring a contractor to work in your home: • Research their track record • Ask for multiple quotes • Get it in writing • Verify license and insurance • Confirm building permits • Inquire about a lien waiver. • Arrange a payment schedule • Get a receipt • Keep your contract. At bbb.org, you can find ratings for businesses across North America, see if there are complaints or customer reviews submitted for a company, and find a list of trusted businesses. When you’re mapping out resources to plan your next project, be sure to add BBB to the list.

‘Pete the Cat’ author sang books as a kid By JENNy APPLEGATE Dispatch MeDia Group

Children’s book author Eric Litwin will appear at the Home & Garden Show Feb. 19. Anyone who has read a Litwin book aloud can attest to that. The rhythm of his stories makes them

theme showed my daughter, when she was in preschool and thought every problem was huge, that life still was just fine. Is that one of your personal beliefs? A: It’s definitely for me and the kids. I write the message that I need to hear, and I think that’s why “Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes,” “Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes,” “Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons” and “Pete the Cat Saves Christmas” ring true to both children and adults. There’s something profoundly important about reminding ourselves to stay positive. Q: Did you like to read when you were a kid? A: Yeah. But it was tough for me, so I sang my books and I chanted my books, and I think that’s one of the reasons I’m so motivated to make books more musical.
