|Garden Walk garden in Garden Ideas and Outdoor Living magazine|
Another Buffalo garden hits the national stage in the Spring 2009 issue of Garden Ideas & Outdoor Living, a Better Homes & Gardens special interest publication. The 8-page story, titled In-Town Seclusion, explains how gardener Mike Banks made his wedge-shape yard more beautiful, private and useful with good garden planning. His secret to success? Dividing the yard into individual spaces, which flow together naturally.
This gorgeous space is literally in downtown Buffalo, in the shadow of city hall.
The article features an interview with Mike, a "before & after"
photo of the wedge-shaped, 700 sq. ft. garden, an illustrated map of
how he designed & planted the space, soil tips especially important
for city-dwellers), a "How to plant this bed" list of plants, and a
side for bar rules of great garden design. Also, in the resources
section in the back of the magazine, there is a plug for Garden Walk Buffalo.
