As we dive into the New Year, let’s shake things up a bit with how we take care of our green havens. Dreaming up a massive wishlist for your garden in winter can make spring feel like a whirlwind of to-dos. Why not take it one step at a time?

Think of your garden as a masterpiece in progress. Start by picking just five goals a year from the bunch we’ve got here and some of your own. Then, next year, five more, and so on. Eventually, you’ll watch your garden transform into that dreamy picture you’ve had in your mind.
