Saw this and thought it would be a great project to begin in January to kick off the new gardening year.

Anyone else planning new projects for 2019?

We are planning to relandscape our front yard. There is a corner that is lower than the rest of the yard, and I’d like to raise it behind a short retaining wall. We also need to pull up some turf to accommodate the spread of an evergreen. And I’d like to add some plantings to soften the severe look of the front of our house.

I did that bottle garden thing back in the 70s, wish I knew what happened to it. It was cool.

So far, all I have planned is to make a new support for one of my clematis, as its original support is too small for it now--it has become quite a monster. In the spring, I'll plant several new blueberry bushes, have the space all ready for them, and plant 5-6 new hydrangeas. I'll start a new container garden on the deck in April.

We are going to pull out 3 of the 4 crape myrtles along our driveway, 3 baby blue spruces, and a weeping cherry, and replace it all with about 10 thula green giants for some much needed privacy to our back yard (corner lot). Won't miss the crapmurders at all! Will relocate the 3 baby blue eye spruces, and ditch the little weeping cherry as the deer appear to be using it as dental floss anyway...

I am looking at having the ash tree in my front yard removed and replaced with either a sunburst or a shademaster honey locust tree (the arborist recommended these two, and he and I are going to discuss more in detail come spring). The ash tree's roots are exposed, plus it's not native to Colorado, where EAB has been cropping up as a problem, so rather than continuing to spend money keeping the ash healthy, I'm going to replace it with something better suited to Colorado. I have a second ash tree on the side of the house, that might be a 2020 project (since removing the trees and having something replanted is not exactly cheap!)

I'm also going to talk to the arborist about planting some bushes in my rock edging near my front walkway. I'm looking at either silvery leadplant or Western sand cherry (both of which do well here).
