Boulder County Home & Garden Magazine


Connecting Boulder County’s home and garden community,

Boulder County Home & Garden Magazine
is much more than Boulder County, Colorado’s newest trend-setting lifestyle publication. It is the rare magazine that is a national-quality publication targeting a lucrative local market.

Most importantly, Home & Garden delivers for both advertisers and 175,000 readers.

Home & Garden is printed four times annually with each issue highlighting a season. The spring issue is published the end of March (ad deadline late February), the summer issue the end of June (ad deadline June 1), fall issue the end of September (ad deadline Sept. 1) and the winter issue the end of December (ad deadline Dec. 1).

Quality defines Home & Garden. Engaging writing supported by striking photos, features on Boulder County’s uniquely elegant homes and insightful ideas that benefit all of Boulder’s County’s well-heeled homeowners make Home & Garden a magazine with a loyal and growing readership.

Of course, quality printing reinforces the compelling content. Home & Garden is a perfect bound, 4-color magazine on coated stock. This guarantees advertisers the vehicle they crave for an attention-grabbing presentation of their engaging message.

Home & Garden targets an audience that is highly desirable — the Boulder County homeowner. Over 65 percent of Boulder County’s residents own their own home and the average price of a single family home was $343,000 in 2001 (prices have since risen)*.

These homeowners spent over $31 million on remodeling their valuable homes in 2001 and 2002.

These attractive figures backed by Home & Garden’s high-quality presentation make Home & Garden the most successful launch in the 30-year history of Brock Publishing.
