BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW / Buffalo Spree ) The Editor of Buffalo Spree Magazine, Elizabeth Licata, is an avid gardener.

Her front and backyard on North Pearl Street in the city will be open to the public to see as part of "Garden Walk Buffalo" the weekend of July 30th and 31st.

Channel 7's Jennifer Stanonis caught up with Licata in her Buffalo backyard to preview the big event.

Here is more from the official website, www.gardenwalkbuffalo.com

Garden Walk Buffalo is a free, self-guided tour of more than 350 Buffalo gardens, the largest garden tour in America. Held annually on the last weekend of July, in 2011 it will be Saturday and Sunday, July 30 and 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"There are Japanese gardens, English gardens, Russian gardens (i.e., barely controlled wildernesses) and what I would call Buffalo gardens - eclectic, funky mixes in which found objects and exotic-looking surrounding rooftops figure prominently." - Atlantic.com

The Garden Walk Guide provides a comprehensive map of the area with Garden Walk homes plotted and described for each garden.

Other than our sponsor locations, complete versions of the guide, can be found at any of the three headquarters locations during the days and hours of Garden Walk.
