Garden Walk Buffalo invites gardeners from the Peace Bridge to Main Street and from Canalside to the Scajaquada to be part of the 2016 Garden Walk Buffalo.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 30 and 31.

Garden Walk Buffalo is the largest free garden tour in the country with more than 60,000 visitors coming from all over the United States, Canada and abroad. It has an estimated economic impact of $4.5 million.

There is no judging and no prizes — the objective of the walk has always been to encourage neighborhood beautification and to promote community pride. There are only two rules: Gardens must be within the boundaries of the walk and gardeners must agree not to sell items during the walk.

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 application, you decide how much access to give visitors. If you want people to see only 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.
