Scottsville Garden in National Magazine

Here's the latest issue of Garden Ideas & Outdoor Living, on your newsstand now. I wrote and took the photographs for a story in it called "12 Design Tips for Your Landscape." I had a blast with it. For one thing, the garden is absolutely beautiful, and while photographing it I got to really take my time and explore every bit. Also, the gardeners—they live in Scottsville— are friends of mine, and they are just a lot of fun and very sweet. The story turned out great; I hope you'll buy a copy! (My mom found one at Wegmans today.)

Over the summer a crew from Garden Ideas & Outdoor Living was in Buffalo, and they photographed one or more Garden Walk gardens, so be on the lookout for that next year.

I'll be scouting gardens again this fall for possible inclusion in a future GIOL (or one of its sister titles—they all are under the Better Homes & Gardens umbrella). If you know of a garden that really stands out in the autumn, please let me know and I'll check it out.

Not only was Better Homes & Gardens out here to shoot two gardens for Garden Ideas and Outdoor Living, but they're coming back next summer to shoot two more, one of which is for Better Homes and Gardens itself.

Garden Gate Magazine was here in July and photographed seven Garden Walk Buffalo gardens for their magazine as well, so be on the lookout for those in the upcoming year (or two!).

A Garden Walk Buffalo garden was also on the cover of People, Places, Plants last summer - for their issue on summer garden tours. (They're a Northeastern US gardening magazine, based in Maine, founded by former HGTV TV show host Paul Tukey)

When a Garden Walk Buffalo Garden gets published in a national magazine, I couldn't be more proud than if it were my own garden.

Congratulations to the Scottsville gardeners. I was just breezing through that issue the other day at the store, now I'll have to pick it up.

Upstate Gardener's Journal does a great job of featuring our regional gardens. I do enjoy seeing great local gardens & gardeners featured in the national pubs.

Thanks, Jim!

That's great news about all of the national exposure Garden Walk is—deservedly—getting. We'll be on the lookout for these stories. I'm sure the magazines are just as excited to have found this giant cluster of great gardens as we are about them being profiled. Makes their jobs easier!
