South Florida Fair organizes first home improvement show

From impact windows to home fitness equipment, the South Florida Fair’s Home Improvement & More Show is set to offer a one-stop shopping experience for residents looking to make at-home enhancements.

With over 60 vendors in attendance, the free event is set for Friday, Oct. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 25 at the Expo Center at the South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd., in West Palm Beach. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Representing an array of home improvement areas, the vendors include kitchen, bath, water filtration, patios, doors, landscape, security, remolding, hot tubs, roofing, gazebos, household items, art, jewelry, window treatment, decks, patios, screening, tree services, flooring and automotive.

After experiencing a couple of bumps in the road due to COVID-19, South Florida Fair and Palm Beach County Expositions President and CEO Vicki Chouris and corporate sales manager Tim Pachis overcame obstacles to put together the event.

“We had on our books a home show that is done by someone professionally all the time at different locations,” Chouris said. “They decided they were having some challenges early on with getting enough vendors… So, they canceled on us. We said, ‘We could go ahead and try to do this ourselves’ and that’s exactly what we did.

“Tim [Pachis] just started reaching out to different businesses that have the offerings for home improvement shows and got a positive response,” Chouris said. “People were anxious to participate. The vendors wanting to get out there and showcase their products.”

Guests are required to wear a mask for entry and will be asked to social distance. Spaced out walkways and hand sanitation stations will also be available.

Managing to put the event together within eight weeks, some of the event sponsors include Bath

Curb appeal is an important home-improvement project

LAURINBURG — While the coronavirus pandemic has kept folks at home and sparked a number of home improvement projects, many of those have been inside the home.

But Adam Wilhelm, owner of AJW Landscaping of Laurinburg, says it’s the perfect time of year for some outdoor projects.

“The fall is a great time for doing some easy home improvement projects in the yard,” he said. “If the long, hot summer has stressed out your lawn, overseeding in the month of October with annual rye grass will give you a lush green stand of grass without breaking the bank.

“This is also a great time to plant shrubs and trees, with cooler temperatures allowing them to become established without the threat of extreme heat,” he added. “Once we’ve had our first frost it’s the right time to do some much-needed pruning and shaping of your already established shrubs and trees.”

Overall, Wilhelm thinks homeowners will often overlook the curb appeal of their property when thinking about home improvement projects.

With a background is real estate, Wilhelm said it can’t be overstated how important the concept of curb appeal is when it comes to buying or selling real property.

“Landscaping isn’t simply mowing and weed-eating,” he explained. “There are, in fact, a lot of lawn care companies that offer limited services, oftentimes mowing and trimming. Our business has evolved over the past few years to become more project-oriented. With so many maintenance-centered landscapers available, we’ve willingly taken on some of the other facets of landscaping and created a niche.”

Some examples of creating positive curb appeal include making sure shrubs and trees are pruned and manicured, pressure washing or cleaning the structure along with the walkways and driveways, adding color to the entrance either by painting or planters.

“Making sure your property
