Outdoor Living Feature


The 2018 Christchurch Home Show (March 2018) hosted an exciting new feature – Outdoor Living – which was designed to showcase a range of inspirational ideas to transform any outside or backyard area into a desirable outdoor living space.


Led by leading landscape design company, Xteriorscapes, the Outdoor Living feature was a series of walk through backyards and showcased everything from landscaping, paving, decking & pergolas, pools, furniture, awnings, foliage, accessories and more.


With the increased trend of homeowners looking to improve their outdoor space to make the most of their home throughout the year, this feature space was very well-received and we will be replicating the Outdoor Living feature within our 2018 Canterbury Home Show (October 2018).
