Unique Ideas from the Winnipeg Home and Garden Show 2022 

Written by Barkman Concrete Published on April 21st, 2022

Spring is upon us, and it’s time to start thinking about a makeover for your garden or outdoor space. With so many options and ideas, it can be hard to narrow down exactly what you’re looking for. Online sources like Pinterest or Instagram are a great way to gain inspiration for your project. Now with home shows making their rounds, you’re able to see products in action.  

The Winnipeg Home and Garden Show was up and running after a two-year hiatus, inspiring many to revamp their landscaping for 2022. From April 7-10, Barkman had products displayed by six of our customers, each exhibiting how Barkman products can be used in unique ways.  

These ideas can be used to give your space a light freshening up for the season, or create an eye-catching centerpiece, making your living space look and feel brand new. Whatever you choose, we have the products that can create the landscape of your dreams.

As seen at Lacoste Garden Centre’s display, our Quarry Stone Wall in Charcoal can be built up to surround and secure posts of a pergola. The lived-in look of the Quarry Stone gives a natural, yet strong look to any outdoor space. Go one step further and build up those walls even more or create a foundation for the personalized feature of your choice, like a firepit or planter, to give your space the feeling as if those stones have been there forever.

3 Seasons Landscaping’s booth had a show-stopping display with the help of Barkman pavers and walls. Their waterfall table was built with our Smooth Quarry Stone in Charcoal and set on Broadway 65mm Pavers in Sterling. This sleek and modern centerpiece gives the ultimate patio experience. Incorporating these products can give your space the facelift it needs. For whatever your idea may be, our products can work in harmony with others to put those ideas into action.

Who says you have to do things by the book? Neil and Nick’s Landscaping showed that you can take a product, like Barkman’s Broadway 65mm Pavers in Sterling, and make it uniquely you. Their custom Jets logo was eye-catching, and just one of the many ways you can change up your space by putting your own designs on an existing product. This allows for a more personalized feel. All of our Broadway Pavers can also be installed in different patterns to give you more options for customizing your spaces.

Our Granite Edgers and Bridgewood Slabs can help finish off your garden with a completely natural look. Seen at Galay Landscaping’s booth, greenery surrounded by Barkman’s edgers in Charcoal and slabs is the perfect tie-in from nature to urban. Not to mention, edgers keep garden stuff in the garden and outside stuff outside. A clean garden is a happy garden! With our Smooth Smooth Quarry Stone Fireplace as a centerpiece, your garden or walkway can have a modern touch while still being naturalistic.

Even the tiniest of corners in your home can be made notable. It’s all about how you use the space you’re given. Using our Smooth Quarry Stone Wall in Charcoal, Classic Landscapes displayed a small garden wall. Making the most out of your space could involve using a product as multipurpose rather than one single purpose. This way, your tiny corner can still be useful without making it cluttered. Functional and beautiful never goes out of style.

A big part of refreshing your space is not only making it beautiful, but making it more interactive or useful than before. As seen at Van Der Meer’s booth, our Broadway 65mm Pavers in Sterling make a great walkway to a personal putting green. Putting pavers in as a walkway can make access to any part of your home, garden or recreational space easier. For a more spaced-out appearance, you can use Broadway 65mm Pavers as stepping stones through areas you don’t want to disturb.

 


 

With all these ideas, it may seem daunting. They are the professionals, after all! However, Barkman makes it easy to find the product that’s right for you. With idea books for each product for DIY projects and an online calculator to manage both your space and budget, your project can be planned quickly and easily.  

The ideas shown at the Winnipeg Home and Garden Show are just a few of the many options you have when dealing with Barkman product. You can learn more through our website or any of our dealers.
