NHS Backyard

Relaunched in 2023 with a new vision, the NHS BACKYARD is the National Hardware Show’s dedicated home for all things lawn, garden, farm, ranch, outdoor living and grilling. There is truly no other event that fills the void for outdoor living quite like the National Hardware Show. Originally launched back in 2005, the National Hardware Show has always had a robust lawn and garden category to host a wide range of outdoor living suppliers. Now, to support the rapid growth of these categories, the Backyard is branching into its very own category to become the destination for everything outdoors at NHS.
