A new home owners and yard work. I remember when I looked forward to that. The best thing about winter is I can totally ignore the endless lawn and garden maintenance except of course for the driveway . 😉

I would identify all the shrubs you have and look up the pruning recommendations.
If the ground isn't frozen, you can still plant bulbs for Spring. Here on Long Island, I can easily dig in the soil this year due to the warm temperatures.
