Front Yard Garden Competition Kick-Off

Next week, thirteen front yards along South Buffalo’s Newman Place (bordering the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Cazenovia Park) will be transformed by professional landscapers, who will donate their time and materials and compete to create the most impressive yards. This Front Yard Garden Competition is part of 2nd annual National Garden Festival and festival organizers believe it is the only such civic-minded garden competition in the country.

The public can view the landscaping work in progress from July 11 to July 16 and then vote for their favorite yard from July 17 to July 22. More than 1000 people voted during the inaugural competition in 2010.

This event is coordinated by the Western New York State Nursery & Landscape Association, the New York State Certified Nursery and Landscape Professionals, the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, Visit Buffalo Niagara, and the National Garden Festival organizing committee.
