The Atlanta Home Show

What a beautiful day to spend time at the Cobb Galleria Centre for the 36th Annual Spring Atlanta Home Show.  This is the largest home show that showcases over 350 exhibitors with the very latest home and gardening improvement products, and services.  This is the place where you can drop in on a cooking demonstration, walk through an indoor landscaped garden or talk to a kitchen designer about your particular needs.


I had a chance to meet Ahmed Hassan who is a celebrity landscaper and original host of DIY Network’s Yard Crashers.  I was so excited to meet with him (including my husband) and to learn what was going on with him since he had left Yard Crashers.  Alot of people do not know his story of how he has got to where he is now .  Ahmed was a trouble teen and had to make a dramatic change in his life to get himself out of the streets. He did this by becoming a landscaper and love it so much that he has been doing this for over 15 years.  During that time, he was pick up but the HGTV and DIY Networks for his high energy personality, motivational spirit and his love of people and beautiful outdoor spaces.

Since becoming a Landscape Professional Celebrity he has been working with the California Federal of Corrections to help teens to find what opportunities that are out there for them in the areas of Landscaping and Gardening.


Since leaving the show he has his own business and no longer doing the landscaping but he is doing a variety of projects in the Environmental Green Living and Landscaping Consulting.  For more information check out his website – and  become apart of his facebook page:

I truly enjoyed hearing Ahmed Hassan speak and please check out his calendar of events to meet him on his website.  There were so many more things that I did at the Atlanta Home Show. Check out and see what I saw by clicking here:
