We're thrilled to have Grass Pad Warehouse joining us at the Johnson County Home + Garden Show, February 20-22, at the Overland Park Convention Center.

Before you see the interesting exhibitor at the show, get to know them a little better in our interview below...

Name: Curtis Stillwell

Booth Number: 522

Describe your products:
"Grass Pad Warehouse is a retail/wholesale midwest distributor for turf sod, turf seed, fertilizer, and nursery stock."

What is your best home and garden tip?
"Grass seed sown now will germinate sooner than seed sown in April. Dormant seed early and avoid the muddy conditions from spring thaw and rains."

Do you have any show specials?
"Our most popular items at the Johnson County Home + Garden Show are our spring bulbs, tubers and bareroot plants."

What are your home and garden pet peeves?
"I will not walk over a frozen lawn. If you do, there will be brown footsteps in the spring."

Have you ever had any strange client requests?
"Once had a gentleman purchase 6 foot Colorado Blue Spruce. When he came to get it, he was in a convertible Chrysler LeBarron. I asked him when he wanted the tree and he just said 'put it in the front seat'. He placed a wind breaker over the leather seat and we put the 6 foot tall, 200lb+ tree in the front seat, and then he drove off."

What's your favorite part about the Johnson County Home + Garden Show?
"Seeing our customers after a long, cold winter. It's a nice appetizer before the spring season hits us."

Anything else you think we should know?
"We have five convenient locations surrounding Kansas City, and one location in Omaha Nebraska."
