​2015 Arts Commission Landscaping Contest Winner 

  Irwin Goldman of Crab Apple Terrace is the winner of the first annual Buffalo Grove Arts Commission Landscaping Contest.  In his application he demonstrated his pride and commitment to the community when he stated:

"When my family moved to this location 23 years ago, we were mindful that our home and landscaping should reflect our pride about living in Buffalo Grove. Even though we enjoy the landscaping beauty for ourselves, our neighbors also enjoy coming by our residence on their daily walks. We often get comments from neighbors that they have changed their walking routes, because they love the colors radiating from our residence.  It gives us such happiness to give back to our friends and fellow Buffalo Grove residents. By incorporating a meditation pond and garden in the backyard, green shrubbery, variety of trees on our property, perennials and vibrant colors from annuals, we want to project a sense of serenity and joy to the individuals who have an opportunity to view our landscaping."
