Portland Real Estate Guide: Portland Fall Home and Garden Show at the Expo Center

Portland Fall Home and Garden ShowFall is the best time to make a few home improvements and renovations to get ready for winter, and it’s also the best time to plant for Spring gardens! If you’ve ever lived in Portland, you’ll no doubt be familiar with the onslaught of bulb flowers – gorgeous irises and daffodils – that take over residential real estate and abandoned street corners all around town, filling Portland with color and Spring fever. You can contribute your own splash of floral beauty to the Spring explosion in Portland by planning some bulbs and Spring-blooming plants in your yard and garden, and if you need a bit of extra help or new idea be sure to check out the 2010 Portland Fall Home and Garden Show at the Portland Expo Center, beginning on September 30 and bringing tips, tricks, and discount supplies to the Portland metro area until October 3rd.

For just $10, Portland Fall Home and Garden Show attendees will be treated to DIY classes, exhibits featuring everything from including valuable information about the best products and services for renovation and new construction in the Pacific Northwest seasonal conditions. Both amateur gardeners and professional landscapers will find great information about new products, design ideas, and tips and tricks for making it through a wet and wild Portland winter. Remodeling tips and tricks will be available from renovation experts, including sustainability pros, historic specialists, and professional contractors. Whether you’re tackling the kitchen, bathroom, roof, basement, or backyard, or have a specific question about plumbing, air conditioning, or green remodeling, the Home and Garden Show at the Expo center is your one-stop shop. Design advice and ideas will be provided by some of the region’s best organizations and companies – including paint demonstrations from Behr paint and flooring demos from Home Depot experts. Seminars, classes, and one-on-one consultations will have you stocked up and ready to rush home and get started on projects that will improve the longevity, quality, and value of your home and garden.

Bargain Hunters will find paradise at the Builder’s Surplus Sale, where local contractors and builders bring their excess materials – including doors, plumbing, lighting, windows, closet organization, flooring materials, and tons of fun accessories – at ridiculously marked-down prices. Don’t miss your chance to snag the deal of the century on a new toilet or that perfect light fixture for your dining room.
