Located in south central Denver, Washington Park (or "Wash Park" as the locals affectionately refer to it as) is bordered by Louisiana Avenue on the south, Downing Street on the West, Franklin Street on the East, and Virginia Avenue on the North. The park is long and rectangular and was originally designed by German landscaper Reinhard Schuetze at the turn of the 20th century. The area that Wash Park occupies served as on of the first suburbs of Denver, until the space was re-annexed by the city of Denver in the late 19th Century. 

Wash Park boasts many unique features, such as two lakes, tennis courts, over 155 acres of space, two flower gardens, and a vast expanse of cycling and running trails. On any given afternoon the residents of the…

Is Your Yard Ready for Winter?

Mow Low & Aerate

Cut the grass down to 1 to 1½ inches, making it easier to aerate and to judge how much compost to add.

This will provide a buffer zone for turning this heavy machine around as you run it back and forth over the rest of the lawn.

Top Dress  & Fertilize

Where grass is sparse, prepare for seeding by spreading a half-inch layer of aged compost. I hold a…

The historic South Pearl Street business district has stood the test of multiple economic collapses since its inception in the early 1900's. Bolstered by the Denver tramway expansions of the late 1800's, the buildings on South Pearl street initially played host to grocers, tailors, early movie theaters, and multiple other goods and services oriented businesses that supported the growth of the surrounding the area. 

The rapid development of shopping malls in the late 1960's and early 1970's caused many businesses to abandon their historic brick and mortar locations in favor of the new space available in shopping malls. This caused the cost of real estate on South Pearl street to fall drastically, which in turn created the perfect environment for…
