One option at this show that's somewhat new is Natural Valley's recycled granite. Just over a year old, the Brownsburg company takes granite scraps from countertop manufacturers and can stack them to create nice visual elements to homes both outside and in.
"They can be applied to any vertical surface," said Chuck Damler, who owns Natural Valley Recycled Granite with his wife Marie. "It's really easy to put up. It's 100 percent natural stone with lots of color variations. You have the ability, because of the way it's put up, to do your own design. You have a lot more flexibility than if you're buying regular tile."
Like with many other home improvement companies, spring is the time of year when Natural Valley sees many people considering outdoor projects. But they also get a lot of clients seeking to add this kind of style indoors during the winter.
"It's hit and miss," Damler said. "We're trying to work more with builders and designers to spec this stuff so we don't have to rely as much on the tides of the seasons."
Tickets for the home and garden show are $10 at the door. Proceeds benefit Sheltering Wings, an emergency housing facility for women and children affected by domestic violence.
