Kind words from Canada...
On the garden blog. allanbecker.gardenguru, Montreal garden designer, consultant, lecturer and writer Allan Becker says of Buffalo's gardens, "Have you noticed the Buffalo style gardens that have been
evolving in western Upstate New York? This type of gardening is
considered by some to be an original American contribution to urban
landscaping. Although the style pays homage to Romantic English gardens,
its unique and distinct local flavor sets it apart from other gardening
idioms. Cultivated in a very cold part of the USA, where winters are
severe and the growing season is short, its development is just short of
a miracle. That so many residents of Buffalo have successfully embraced
this style to make it their own is a phenomenon."
