Home improvement, landscaping and the smell of barbecue cooking on the grill. That, among other things, is what you can expect at the 28th Annual Home & Garden Show this weekend.

The show takes place over three days and brings together hundreds of local contractors, landscapers and tradesmen to answer questions, "The Sultan of Sod" Dale Edwards said Tuesday on "First Look with Scott Cox."

Edwards has been on the radio as the sod expert of Kern County for many years, and he talked about the benefits of watering lawns once a month instead of every day.

"If you're watering your lawn every day, you have a lot of weeds," Edwards said.

Edwards will provide tips on how to conserve water while keeping a green lawn and how to plant your own garden.

Although Edwards is not a fan of vegetables, he said there is nothing better than growing your own food in your backyard.

And in hopes of luring vegetables onto dinner tables, local chef Jeff McFee will fire up the grill for summertime vegetable cooking and barbecue recipes.

The show kicks off from noon to 7 p.m. Friday at the Kern County Fairgrounds. Tickets are $8 for adults and children under 12 enter free.
