Boulder Guide

Overview

We’re thrilled to be able to provide Landscaping in Boulder. The unique topography of residential yards nestled against the shadow of the flatirons comes with its own unique design and installation changes.
Located 25 miles northwest of Denver, this city of just over 100,000 people has an elevation of 5,430 feet above sea level and lies at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. In addition to being a very popular area for outdoor enthusiasts, the “Happiest Place in the United States”, as Boulder has often been referred to, also offers a variety of art and cultural events, festivals, eclectic restaurants, shopping and the annual Bolder Boulder 10k race which attracts over 50,000 runners from all over the globe.
The University of Colorado has its main campus on the west end of town which has an enrollment of over 30,000 students. Bicycling is very popular with approximately 70% of its residents owning a bike. Snow is often removed from the Boulder Creek bike path before any of the city streets are plowed!
The climate here is relatively mild with over 200 days of sunshine per year. Average temperatures in the winter range from the mid to high 40’s with variably hot summer days ending with short frequent afternoon thunderstorms.
The median age is 28.7 years (one third of the population are university students between 18-24) and the average household income as of 2020 is approximately $102,800 per year. The average rental price is $1,466 per month for a one bedroom and the median home value is $749,300, according to Zillow.

History

Native Americans were the first to inhabit the Boulder Valley, consisting mainly of the Southern Arapaho tribe. The first non-native settlement within city limits was established in 1858 by gold seekers in what is now called Settler’s Park, located at the mouth of Boulder Canyon. By 1880, the population of Boulder had reached 3,000 people.
To this day, with the purchase of thousands of acres of open space, building restrictions and the restoration of historic buildings, some preservation of the city’s history is able to be maintained.
