The time is ripe for marketing to yard devotees – the peak sales months for garden centers are April through July, according to the U.S. Census Bureau – and the lawn and garden market is juicy. The National Gardening Association reports that 72 percent of all U.S. households dug into their gardens in 2012, spending a total of $29.4 billion on their lawns and gardens. More DIY gardeners are planting food gardens than ever, something I can certainly relate to, as my backyard resembles a vegetable patch more and more every year (rabbit infestations and all).

I have plenty of local company. Boulder County is home to thousands of outdoor enthusiasts, from do-it-yourselfers to those whose thumbs aren’t quite as green. Of Boulder Valley adults, 90,300 are lawn and garden supply shoppers, 36,500 utilize landscaping services, 106,500 are homeowners, and 123,900 shop hardware and home improvement stores.
