Home Improvement


Looking to upgrade up your home or complete some lingering projects? Attend the Lowcountry Home & Garden Show on March 29-31 and meet area experts in home design and renovation, discover the latest developments in green home products and get inspired by locally sourced, creative ideas.

This annual spring event showcases hundreds of products and services for your home and garden, as well as cooking demos, workshops and more. Sponsored by the Hilton Head Area Home Builders Association, the show will feature local home and garden experts who can help attendees renovate, decorate and landscape their homes and lawns. As a special event, the Farmers Market of Bluffton will be held March 31 at the home show. Children’s activities will be offered March 30-31 and lunch will be available for purchase.

Local business owners at the show will answer questions and offer products and services like home security systems, gutters, HVAC systems, furniture, cabinetry, pools, awnings, tree services, remodeling, flooring, blinds, plumbing, pet containment systems, pest control, solar panels, screened porches, lighting, roofing, painting and more.

Professionals in wireless communications, real estate, insurance, mortgage lending, financial services and other industries will also be on hand to provide information.

And as always, vendors and industry professionals will be giving away thousands of dollars in prizes at their booths.

Home show seminars will include presentations by Taylor’s Quality Landscape Supply of Bluffton and the Lowcountry Master Gardeners Association on plants, flowers and landscaping. Attendees can also learn about the status of the Lowcountry real estate market.

In conjunction with the home and garden show, the annual Parade of Homes will offer an inside look at the design, amenities and craftsmanship of many of the Lowcountry’s top custom builders and communities. Some of the area’s finest homes and neighborhoods will open their doors to visitors, who can learn about local builders and subcontractors, getting to know their styles and picking up a few new ideas for their own homes.

Parade of Homes tour guides and passes can be purchased at the home show or bought online or through the new Parade of Homes app. Passes are $5, with proceeds going to local charities. Passes are required to tour all homes.
