For the last few years, the most trending topic in Washington DC has been the election and who will be the president of the United States.
Now that the election is over, it is time to focus on some other important issues in your life - like "How will I design my house this year?"
The Washington Home and Garden Expo is the perfect opportunity to revamp your house and yard on the cheap. The trade show not only has the finest contractors under the sun but the website allows you to find out which will be attending in advance - allowing you to go right to the source on arrival.
Last year's expo featured 16,000 square feet of exquisite gardens indoors and special guests Ty Pennington (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) and Todd Davis. (Room Crashers) This year will prove to be even bigger with promotional contests and other surprises.
The 2013 Expo takes place in March on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th. Tickets will be available online for $3-$12; children under 6 are free.
