We knew we loved Urban Roots before we ever went in.
Often, I walk our dog different routes around the Cap Hill neighborhood, and was delighted when I came across this beautiful Garden store and boutique on Acoma St.
Steve and I had a great time exploring the outside of Urban Roots; observing the beautiful arrangement of plants, we noticed the vast variety… Flowers, grasses, trees, vegetables, fruits, you name it! All of these ideas came pouring out of us: a veggie garden, or fruit intertwining lattice? What about the tall grasses?! Oh, and then we remembered that we had an apartment in Cap Hill with a simple porch…
But that’s what they do at Urban Roots – they inspire great, big ideas for small, Denver spaces. How cool is that? They get it – being in metro Denver for 12+ years catering not only to families in the area, but also to businesses, colleges, and historical land marks (to name a few) for installment work, they understand the space constraints that we Denverites often find ourselves battling.
If you have a birthday or special event, make sure to check out their selection of gifts (local and beyond) inside the shop:
However, to say that Urban Roots is simply a Garden store or a boutique is downright offensive – they’re SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT! They help our community grow and flourish – they help bring ideas to life!
Urban Roots helps people and businesses make the most of their spaces and their ideas. Also, they help people like Steve and I pick out plants for patios as well as birthday gifts for important friends and family members! We had no clue what plants to choose for growing in Colorado – we had only gardened in Michigan, which I’m sure you can guess is a totally different climate and ball game altogether!
From beautiful cards, to neat plantlife holders, to other fun & unique items – they have so many great gift options, that you may have to spend a good amount of time choosing. Or, do what I do, and just buy something for yourself as well. No shame.
More into creating gifts for others? No worries – stay tuned to the Urban Roots Facebook page for upcoming classes, like how to make Terrariums.
Don’t fret – Urban Roots isn’t just a summer destination! In the winter, they will have winter plant life, trees for Christmas, and also be decorating trees. Unique ornaments will also be available for purchase to liven up your own holiday tree.
With so much to offer to the community, we really admire Urban Roots. Not only do we admire their products, store, and installment work, we also admire their attitudes! We only assume it can be difficult to provide positive attention, advice, and patience when working with people like Steve and I who know next to nothing about growing beautiful plants in Colorado.

Not much of a Twitter fan? That’s okay – we’re on Facebook, too!
