Our fabulous casino! How to landscape it?
Oh, I know, I know. I am so late to this party. But I truly don’t think you can grasp the magnificence of Buffalo’s lovely new gaming facility (which has been open for some time) unless you have seen it in person, so to speak. My sister and I were driving back from the Botanical Gardens and took Ohio Street off the Skyway. Soon enough, there it was, in all its splendor. I didn’t notice too much activity around it. But we were too busy laughing our heads off to really pay attention.
Now, for the gardening-related part. What plantings would you suggest to complement architecture such as this? I don't know what the Senecas have planned—it should be corn, beans, and squash (the Three Sisters) of course—but they might not want to limit themselves to the traditional ways.
Oh, I'm sorry, here's a side view so you have a better sense of the design. As you can see, they have started working on the tree canopy.
Update on the massive agave and late-summer gardens at the BG to come. They are always at their best at this time of year.
