“There are Japanese, English and Russian gardens, and what I would call Buffalo gardens–eclectic, funky mixes in which found objects and exotic-looking rooftops figure prominently.”
-Andrew Sprung, of The Atlantic.com’s Daily Dish


In Buffalo, you’ll find small urban gardens that pack a big punch–including cheerfully brash juxtapositions of colorful perennials and unique annuals, minimal or no lawns, and creative uses of found objects and architectural artifacts as sculpture. A Buffalo-style garden will have the patina of a well-used, customized space, often with complete disregard for garden design conventions. Buffalo gardeners take advantage of the sides of houses and fences by hanging artwork, sculptures, grates, mirrors, plants and more–incorporating the impressive and diverse architecture found throughout every neighborhood.
