Wheat Ridge Guide

Overview

We are wheat ridge landscapers. Wheat Ridge may seem relatively young as it was only incorporated as a city in 1970, but its history goes back to the 1840’s where miners first discovered the city.

 Wheat Ridge gets more sunny days than the average city in the US, with 247 sunny days the whole year. The temperature can range from 18 – 90 degrees, therefore it doesn’t need to brave too much snow, nor excessively hot summers.

The population has been increasing by at least 3.46% yearly, and the current population is at 31,210, according to a 2020 census.

History

The city is known to be discovered by miners, but has been popular with the agricultural crowd too. Being in the middle of regional travel routes, Wheat Ridge was a popular stop-over to travelers journeying from the valley to the mountains and back.
