“You rebuild, and rebuild better,” said Krista Palgutt, whose landscape was damaged when their neighbor’s garage burned down.
The back of the Palgutts’ house was charred. The patio, which they had just installed the previous year, had to be redone because the plastic furniture melted onto the patio.
“But all the perennials came back,” Palgutt said, “except for the old growth hydrangeas.”
No one was hurt in the fire, and I saw how their landscape made a comeback when I visited the family at their Hudson Street home last year during Garden Walk Buffalo.
This year’s Garden Walk Buffalo takes place this weekend. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, there new things to check out. See what’s new here.
