STF West Winds Nursery Capital Home Show DisplayCapital Home and Garden Show

We are excited to announce that we are going to be at the Capital Home and Garden Show February 22 – 24, 2013 at the Dulles Expo Center.

We’ll be in booth #910.

This year our display promises to provide inspiration and ideas for creating your own exciting outdoor room for relaxing and entertaining.

Woodland Twist Meets Modern Intrigue

A myriad of spring flowers will set off a rich tapestry of foliage planting specifically chosen for their unique textures. An unusual water display will offer soothing sounds and a welcome visual treat. There will several surprises as the garden winds through the woodland!


The display this year will have a custom fence running through part of the display, creating a small “mini” garden. The “mini” garden will turn into modern small garden area.  An unusual window in the fence will allow a glimpse of both sides of the garden through the fence.


The greater part of the garden will be a natural woodland style garden –  “woodland twist meets modern intrigue.” As a special treat, Tennessee Crab Orchard stone will be used extensively in the hardscape areas.  Tennessee Crab Orchard stone is durable sandstone found in the vicinity of Crab Orchard Tennessee.  This unusual stone was first used in local structures and sidewalks in the late 19th century, the Crab Orchard stone gained popularity in the 1920s when it was used in the construction of Scarritt College in Nashville.


“Come rest with us a while and smell the flowers,” says Cecilia Palmer & Phillip Klene of Shade Tree Farm
