Everyone at the Arrowhead Home and Builders Show at the DECC is there for their own reason.
"Mostly the gardening the landscaping are the features I'm looking for the most, but no real project on my mind," said Gary Houdek of Duluth.

The season in the Northland for building projects, lawn care, and landscaping is already short, but this year it will be even shorter.
"It's definitely going to push the season back a little bit. Last year we didn't get going until the second part of May," said Eric Grussendorf, owner of Grussendorf Nursery.

They said people are anxious and making decisions now. They don't want to wait for the snow to melt.
"They're getting cabin fever, spring is going to come it's going to be here," said Grussendorf.
