  1. knowing my home and my large yard well, I love to spend time in the winter planning which plants didn’t work out and will remove, drawing which tweaks I want to do to add to the landscaping and checking my notes on which garden items did well and which ones I need to replace with something new. I like to rotate my garden plantings so that the same product is not grown in the same place 2 years in a row. We have a long winter here so this helps take care of my gardening withdrawals!
