Today you can see a short video that gives you a glimpse of the beautiful pond and gardens of Ron and Sandy Baty. If you are inspired by what you see and want to install a pond in your yard, Ron suggests joining the Niagara Frontier Koi and Pond Club. The members are happy to share their knowledge.
The Batys shared their landscape on both the daytime and nighttime portions of the Ken-Ton Garden Tour last year.
This year the Ken-Ton Garden Tour will be held:
- Friday, July 20 from 8:30 to 11 p.m.
- Saturday, July 21 from 8:30 to 11 p.m.
- Saturday & Sunday, July 21 and 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If you live in the the Town of Tonawanda or Village of Kenmore and would like to share your garden on the Ken-Ton Garden Tour this year, you must apply by 5 p.m. Friday, June 8.
You can register online. If you want to mail your application, download an application here and mail it to Ken-Ton Garden Tour, c/o Sandy Martineck, 26 Brockett Drive, Kenmore, NY 14223. Paper applications are also available in the Tonawanda Town Supervisor’s Office, 2919 Delaware Ave., Kenmore.
There is an $8 application fee to cover the cost of your lawn sign.
Whether you register online or by mail, late entries won’t be accepted. The organizers need adequate time to prepare the materials for this year’s Ken-Ton Garden Tour Guidebook, which will be published in the July 11 edition of the Ken-Ton Bee.
