Spring is on its way, and the Salt Lake Tribune Home & Garden Festival is ready to take you under its wing with tips to inspire, educate and motivate the designer in you. From March 8 to 11, spring's hottest design ideas will be showcased at the South Towne Expo Center, and we're giving away tickets (see below).

Keep your eyes open for the latest trends in landscaping and the Blooming Hope Flower Auction benefiting Primary Children's Medical Center.

The fest will also feature special guest  appearances from Ahmed Hassan of DIY Network's Yard Crashers and Josh Flagg of Bravo's Million Dollar Listing.


With these guys helping you, nothing's out of reach!

Tickets are normally $10 at the door and $8 online, or you can enter our contest and win two tickets to the festival.

Comment on this blog with the renovation you've been dieing to make to your home.

It could be a adding a fish pond to your back yard or giving your home a little Grecian flare with columns...everywhere. We want to hear all about 'em!

We'll pick our favorite comment and email the winner with details about how and where to pick up the tickets.

Make sure to comment before the morning of March 7 to enter the contest.
