By January 2, 2014

Landscaping enthusiasts needn't go into hibernation in January, even if they live in a cold climate. picture of snow on branchYou may not be doing much outside in the yard in January, I grant you that (well, other than shoveling snow, that is!). But in the comfort of your home, you can always plan future landscaping or gardening projects, right?

Of course, if you live in a warm climate, you do still have yard tasks to perform in January.

Whichever camp you fall into, consult this handy resource from About.com's Gardening Guide, which offers tips such as reminding you to recycle your Christmas tree. Marie Iannotti discusses how to get going on your plans for next year's garden (if you live in the North), as well as providing advice (if you live in the South) on what you should be doing in the yard at this time. Marie offers a January to-do list for the yard for each of 5 distinct regions of the U.S. and Canada.

Oh no, don’t remind me! I look forward to a brief respite from yard work during this time of year. Unfortunately, this year has been so unseasonably warm that we had to cut the grass the week before Christmas. Finally, cold weather has hit and I’ll let the leaves fall where they may. Come spring, I’ll be ready to rock and roll in the yard again! (Though I do like the tips for sharpening tools and feeding the birds… great wintertime activities!)

Mowing the lawn the week before Christmas, huh? I’m not sure whether to envy you or pity you. I retired my mower for the year so long ago that I don’t remember where I stored it.
