This year the National Hardware Show continues its steady growth in the lawn and garden and outdoor living segments with more than 600 exhibitors showcasing products in categories like birdng, barbeque, fencing, fertilizers, tools, ponding, holiday, irrigation, decor, outdoor lighting, furniture and more.

The show, which runs May 10-12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, reflects the overall trends in outdoor rooms, staycations, organic and grow-your-own gardening.

Americans have expanding their living spaces to their backyards, and the Lawn & Garden/Outdoor Living section at the National Hardware Show has grown right along with this trend,” says Rich Russo, event director of the show. “The 2011 event will showcase not ony the growing number of products for America’s outdoor rooms, but the latest in green and organic products.”

The Lawn & Garden/Outdoor Living section is one of several product categories at this year’s show. The others are Hardware & Tools; Homewares; Paint & Accessories; Plumbing & Electrical; Storage & Organization and Tailgating, Camping & Picnic.

This year’s show also features the first Lawn, Garden & Outdoor Living Innovation Awards, to be presented May 11 on the NRHA Stage. These awards focus on innovative new products that compel the merchant to buy in the product category. Entries will be on display in the main lobby and will be judged by leading merchants from retailers and distributors, as well as industry experts. Awards will be presented in Gold, Silver, Bronze and Honorable Mention categories.
