Just fill out the registration form and your garden can become part of this event. The only requirement is that your garden be within the geographical boundaries of Garden Walk Buffalo.

Your garden doesn’t need to be perfect; no one’s ever is. Gardens range from large properties to a few square feet – it’s the diversity that makes this event a success.

You decide how much access to give visitors. If you want people to see only your front garden, that is up to you. On the registration form and on the lawn sign that will provided to you, you can indicate front, side and/or back gardens.
