The Front Yard Garden Contest, a popular event during the National Garden Festival each year, kicks off Monday, July 9th at the 2012 site, Crowley Avenue in Buffalo. The site borders the Frederick Law Olmstead-designed Riverside Park.
15 front yards will be transformed by professional landscapers, Master Gardeners and teams from the Buffalo Olmstead Parks Conservancy; all will be donating their time and materials to this event, which is coordinated by the Western New York State Nursery and Landscape Association, the New York State Certified Nursery and Landscape Professionals, the Buffalo Olmstead Parks Conservancy, Visit Buffalo Niagara and the National Garden Festival organizing committee.
The public can watch the transformations throughout this week, Monday through Friday, July 9th through 13.
