Planning Home or Outdoor Projects?

Patch lists some resources to get information about home improvement and garden projects.

If you are looking for spring project ideas, it may be worth the drive to Timonium to check out the Maryland Home & Garden Show this weekend. The Baltimore Sun created a list of 10 features to check out while you are there.

The show will be Friday through Sunday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, 2200 York Rd. in Timonium. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (62 years or older), $3 for children 6-12, and free for children younger than 3.
