Novi Backyard, Pool, & Spa Show Opens Friday


Home entertaining, exercising, and swimming is possible with a pool, spa, hot tub or backyard living amenity from the 21st annual Novi Backyard, Pool & Spa Show at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi that opens Friday and runs until Sunday.

“March is the best time to begin planning your backyard getaway and meet with the experts so your family and friends can enjoy a new or renovated outdoor living space this summer,” says Richard Martin, president of Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, Michigan Chapter. “Our show exhibitors can create a new backyard environment or renew an existing backyard with their design, equipment, construction, servicing or refurbishing.” APSP is the event sponsor and a non-profit local trade association comprised of member companies in the pool, spa and backyard living business.

Hundreds of ideas, products and services are available from the major outdoor living environment categories including inground and above ground pools, spas, swim spas, hot tubs, saunas, decks, patios, fencing, awnings, outdoor kitchens and living spaces, landscaping, water features, brick paving, decorative concrete, patio furniture and accessories.

Homeowners will find the information they need about building and buying a pool or spa at show exhibits. Experts are available with tips and advice on purchasing, planning, maintenance, safety and landscaping. Children will enjoy the inflatable bounce house, basketball free throw shooting, face painting and clowns.

“Every weekend this summer will be a vacation for homeowners with a new backyard setting,” Martin says. “Exhibitors will have a wide selection on display and showcase the latest trends and innovations in action to fit any space or budget for backyard living relaxation and fun.
