Backyard Xscapes eXperiences 2010 Landscaping eXpo

Backyard Xscapes participated in the 50th annual Landscape Expo held in Long Beach this past October 6-7. The Expo included exhibits from over 200 vendors displaying products and providing help and ideas to private and corporate consumers wishing to “design, build or maintain” their respective landscapes.

Many vendors held raffles and contests to create interest and discussion around various new products and eco-friendly landscaping ideas. Backyard Xscapes gave away an environmentally friendly bamboo Tiki Bar valued at $500 to one lucky winner in addition to providing our customary top-notch customer service and educational materials.

This year’s expo expanded by 50% over last year and showcased 45 industry specific seminars where attendees could earn PAPA, CLT CLP, ISA and SPLD credits. Hour-long talks were giving on topics ranging from Irrigation and Landscape Design to Tree Care and Sustainability. The Expo continued into the night as a panel led a discussion about the future of the landscaping industry for landscape contractors, superintendents, architects and design professionals in attendance at a pool side after party.

Backyard Xscapes thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the crowd at the Long Beach Convention Center as well as with other industry professionals. Congratulations to Fern Nuerro for winning herself a brand new Tiki Bar. We hope it transforms your backyard xscape into a private paradise you will enjoy for years to come.

Products Featured on “THE HILLS” on MTV and Star Magazine

On the beaches of Malibu, the cast of MTV’S “THE HILLS” shows that even with beautiful waves at your feet, a little tropical decor goes a long way in enhancing festivities and creating that local paradise.

Backyard X-Scapes helped to provide basic pieces to further enhance the beach front property.  The area was trimmed off by Tiki torches, which helped to provide ambient lighting and atmosphere once the sun set.  A Bamboo Tiki Bar, decorated with tropical decor and a bamboo bar sign,  provided a center gathering area for drinks and conversation, with some Reed and naturally Black Bamboo Fencing to provide an exotic backdrop.
