If you love to garden or want to learn how, Denver is the perfect city to buy a home. A lot of people who buy Highlands real estate enjoy rooftop gardens, while others belong to community gardens in the Highland neighborhood. Talk to me about amazing homes in LoHi (Lower Highlands) with yards suitable for vegetable and flower gardening. Whether you decide to buy a striking modern home with an expanse of windows overlooking your gardens or a historic Victorian or brownstone, living in LoHi is ideal for garden lovers.
Joining an urban garden
In some cases you might have to get on a waiting list to since some of the Denver Urban Gardens are full for the season.

Exploring rooftop gardening
Another exciting way to explore your love for plants is to buy a loft or condo with a rooftop patio. Many people fill up planters with colorful flowers, ornamental grasses and herbs. Your loft or condo will likely appreciate in value by having the best mountain and skyline views. One of the nice things about living in LoHi is the fact you can walk to a number of coffee shops, restaurants and shops. It’s only a 20 minute walk across the pedestrian bridge to the downtown.
For those who buy a home on a small yard in LoHi, some of the strategies include vertical gardening, growing vines and plants up fences or a pergola. Container gardening is also ideal for smaller LoHi yards. When house hunting in Denver with me, look for yards with fences and homes with patios.
