It's a good thing the Atlantic City Home & Garden Show is happening this month at the A.C. Convention Center, because I really need some inspiration.  My mother was born with a green thumb, I was not. But I refuse to let one more spring season go by without taking initiative to beautify my own home, and that's where the AC Home & Garden Show comes in.

The Atlantic City Home & Garden Show is happening February 20-February 22nd.


Here are three improvements I need to make this spring:

    Decide on an aesthetic.

    My trouble in planting a garden, is that I have no vision.  My goal is to finally settle on a color scheme and what I'd like the overall layout to look like, to give me a jumping off point.

    Beef up curb appeal.

    I'll be attending the AC Home & Garden Show to meet with experts about streamlining the exterior of my home, from siding, to trim colors and lawn care.

    Stay on top of upkeep!

    This is the hardest part for me. While I have planted two or three beautiful gardens since becoming a homeowner, they don't stay that way.  I'm looking forward to getting some advice from professionals about maintaining my hard work.
