(A Brief Foreword from Niagara At Large – When so many of us have had more than enough of the winter cold and just want it to start getting warmer and greener outside, it is nice to get this call-out from an organization that hosts one of the nicest and most popular summer events of the year in our greater Niagara region. Here is a one for all of our Buffalo area friends and readers.)

Buffalo, New York – Garden Walk Buffalo invites gardeners from the Peace Bridge to Main Street and from Canalside to the Scajaquada to be part of the 2018 Garden Walk Buffalo, to be held Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Share your garden and show your pride in our neighborhoods and city.

Garden Walk Buffalo hosts the largest free garden tour in the country with 60,000+ visitors coming from all over the states, Canada, and even further abroad. It has an estimated economic impact of $4.5 million.

There is no contest and no prizes – the objective of the Walk has always been to encourage neighbourhood beautification and to promote community pride. Just fill out the registration form and your garden can become part of this wonderful event.

Your garden does not need to be perfect; no one’s ever is.

Gardens range from large properties to a few square feet – but that is okay – it is the diversity that makes this event a success. When you fill out the registration form, you decide how much access to give visitors. If you only want people to see your front garden, that is up to you. You simply indicate that and mark the box on the lawn sign that will be provided to you.
