Garden Art for Your Buffalo-Style Garden

Gardens are great on their own. But if you’re looking to add more than just plants – something to create some artistic pizzazz – then you need to attend the third annual Buffalo-Style Garden Art Sale this Sunday, July 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Delaware Park Parkside Lodge (84 Parkside Avenue) – rain or shine.

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

No matter what you’re looking for, this sale is chock full of garden accents that will surely put your flowery creation on the map. At the show you will find copper, steel, glass, stone, concrete, and wooden statuary; hand-crafted furniture and tuteurs; hypertufa planters, birdbaths, birdhouses, paintings, ceramics, stepping stones… everything under the sun!


Join over 40 vendors, and meet up with “Plant Society Avenue”, a group that can answer all of your garden related questions. There’s also a Chinese auction of plant society contributions, and music by Concrete Peach (2-3 p.m.). I
