The Edgewater Neighborhood

A Community Rich in History

Edgewater is nestled between the cities of Denver, Wheat Ridge and Lakewood.  It offers a unique small town atmosphere within minutes of the downtown Denver area.  The community provides a quality of life enjoyed by past and present generations.

The history of Edgewater, Colorado is closely tied to the development of Sloans Lake.  The lake was created in 1861 when Thomas Sloan, hoping to farm the area, dug a well that overflowed and flooded 200 acres.  The City's name 'Edgewater' was derived from its proximity to the water's edge.  The formation of the lake initially attracted a few fisherman and ice-cutters to the area.  However, it wasn't until the 1887 establishment of Fort Logan that

Halloween

 

Halloween Love

Are you excited for All Hallows' Eve?

Straddling the line between fall and winter, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the

Is your yard ready for Winter?

The end of summer signals the best time to lay the groundwork for a lush field of grass come spring.

Here are steps to getting your grass 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. If your grass is more than 3 inches tall, take it down incrementally over a few mowings—no more than a third of the grass blade at a time—to avoid stressing the plants. On a day when the soil is moist, not soggy—the core aerator's hollow tines can't easily penetrate hard, dry ground—take a couple of passes around the lawn's perimeter. This will provide a buffer zone for turning this heavy machine around as you run it back and forth over

Preparing your Garden for Winter

winter garden

Putting your garden to bed for the winter is mostly a matter of cleaning up and covering up. As fall progresses and temperatures drop, the plants that aren't killed outright by frost prepare for dormancy.  Clear out the blackened stems and foliage of annual flowers and vegetables to prevent the possibility of their harboring disease pathogens and insect eggs over the winter. The cool weather is a good time to make a cold frame, dig and box in raised beds, and make general repairs.

How to Prepare Perennials for Winter:

Cut back dry stems of perennials to soil level after frost to neaten the garden and remove pest eggs and disease spores that may linger. Leave stems with attractive seed heads for winter
