I'll be doing a more complete video about Genesee, but here's a little talk about why it's one of the best places to live WestOfDenver. You really feel like you live in the mountains in Genesee, so this could be your new mountain home, while being only 25 minutes to downtown. 25758 Summergreen Lane (an ironic address for this video)  is a lot of beautiful home for the price. You'll use the three fireplaces on days like this, and there's a 2.1KW solar panel system that is owned, not leased.

Leave the Dandelions alone!

The tide is turning against huge swaths of perfect and purposeless lawns. But many still feel that need to get out the weed and feed, hastening the demise of the innocent dandelions the minute they pop up. 

Dandelions and lots of the other "plants out of place" are actually not always the evil invasives we've been led to believe. In fact, even Creeping Charlie has a benevolent side when it comes to bees. Mind you not every weed, especially ones designated "noxious" belong in our home landscapes, but there are quite a few that benefit wildlife. 

Bees and other wildlife count on these "first responders to spring" for survival. Maybe we should start thinking of the dandelion as not a weed but a wildflower? And who

Modern Farmhouses are going up all over the Denver Metro area.

We see a lot of houses, and we are constantly on the lookout for new trends in architecture and design around the Denver area. We've seen a lot of them come...and go. (We're talking about you, Tuscan-style.) We think this one might be here to stay, though. The elements of Modern Farmhouse style easily integrate into almost any urban Denver neighborhood, and looks great in the suburbs, too. 

We aren't the only ones who have noticed. This architectural trend was recently featured in the Denver Post.

Modern Farmhouse style:






The clean, modern, and fresh-feeling vibe of Modern Farmhouse style can be easily incorporated into any home. Check
