Seven Garden Walk Buffalo gardens featured in Great Backyards magazine

Great Backyards spring issue is out. And it contains seven Buffalo gardens, all of which are on Garden Walk Buffalo. Each garden has a two-page spread and helps illustrate landscaping solutions.

The gardens, from diverse neighborhoods within Garden Walk Buffalo, appearing in this issue include:
  • 44 Irving Place (Perennial Impact - Seasonal color changes provide just the right punch)
  • 56 North Pearl Street (Full-Shade Splendor - A writer with a penchant for spring bulbs shows how they can flourish). The garden of Elizabeth of GardenRant / GardeningWhileIntoxicated)
  • 815/819 West Ferry Street (Symmetrical but Different - Unifying two gardens on the driveway - each with different needs)
  • 377 Little Summer Street (Up Against the Wall - How a garden grew against a neighbor's garage)
  • 533 Auburn Avenue (Funky English Style - A tiny, lush lot evolves with an artist's help)
  • 167 Richmond Avenue (Less Lawn, More Garden - A garden, house and homeowner finally nestle together)
  • 7/11 Putnam Street (Colorful Daylily Profusion - A professional's three gardens flourish with 360 varieties)
All are long-time Garden Walk Buffalo participants. The magazine features 50 gardens from around the country, with Buffalo being represented more than any other one city or area of the country. Last year's issue of this same magazine also featured 12 Buffalo gardens. All photography was created by Garden Walk Photographer Don Zinteck of Photographics 2.

Great Backyards, a magazine by Harris Publications, can be found at Wegmans grocery stores and most other bookstores where magazines are sold throughout the country. Editor Barbara Ballinger will be visiting us for Garden Walk Buffalo this July.


  1. Would love to see them all sometime! gail

  2. Hortist,
    Thanks. Great gardens, our own talented & generous photography, an accommodating editor and willing gardeners make for a great combo. Especially supplying our own photography.

    You'll see a few of them for Garden Bloggers Buffa10. But that'll be just a taste. Every gardener in the U.S. should make a trip to Buffalo to see the gardens and enjoy the vibe of Garden Walk Buffalo at some point in their life. 50,000 gardeners roaming the streets aimlessly is a sight to behold.
