Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What can I do about weeds in my yard?

Weeds might start peeking through in the garden beds, even if you put down landscape fabric liner to keep them at bay. Be sure to get rid of weeds before they go to seed. Pull out weeds from the root in edible gardens, and dig up the roots if the weed snapped off without them. If you'd like to treat weeds with weed killer, check that it's safe for bees, other pollinators, and pets — and wear a respirator mask and heavy rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

How do I fix grass damaged by pets?

You'll need to rehydrate those roots. The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the burnt spot with a long drink, then continue to water it regularly. It should perk up within a week. On the other hand, the method for how to treat grass from dog urine isn't as straightforward. Grass damaged by pets must be removed, neutralized, and replanted in fresh soil with new grass seed, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

When's the best time to water plants?

If you can water during the early morning or in the evening, that's ideal. A noon or mid-day watering will evaporate quickly, so come back with an evening watering if possible. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, grass, trees, and veggies. Give all the plants a thorough drink, and don't skip it because it's not the best time. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time on the clock. Depending on your grass type, climate, and lawn health, you may also want to look into applying a lawn fertilizer.

When do I fertilize my plants?

Once you've planted your plants or flowers, make sure they're hydrated and well-fed. Choose an organic or a synthetic fertilizer that fits your needs and give your garden a boost. You can even find one that's formulated for the plants you're growing, whether you need a veggie fertilizer, flower fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as directed on the packaging. Be sure to water immediately after, as directed, so the plants won't be burned by the fertilizer.

How can I cool off my patio?

When you need a break from gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a house or shed, create shade by attaching awnings and shade sails. However, sometimes shade isn't enough because it's extremely humid. That's when a patio mister or misting fan can help cool the air and transform a stifling afternoon into a relaxing day. Go back to enjoying the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

How do I do a quick patio makeover for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need to do a full backyard makeover or to create your own patio conversation sets from scratch to do it. Even a minor backyard refresh can make a big difference. A new outdoor rug, outdoor lounge furniture, or even a string of outdoor lights can breathe new life into a patio.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Bannister Mall

As we continue deeper into summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more intense heat and UV rays than earlier in the season. That means you'll need to consider how to keep things cool with shade, proper tending, and irrigation. You might also need ways to beat the heat. We've got guidance to help you, your lawn, and your garden make it through the hotter months.

Keep It Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the sod or grass seed you planted will grow taller than what's ideal. You'll need to maintain it so it can look manicured and fresh again. Keep the lawn in check with a self-propelled lawn mower and a string trimmer to knock down any tall grass around hardscaping and trees.

Trees and bushes climb toward the sun and lose their shape over time. In the summer, they'll be growing fast, filled with buds and blooms before you know it. Prune them back to show off their verdant beauty with the best hedge trimmers for your shrubs. It's best to leave major tree maintenance and tree topping to the pros, but you may want to use a pole saw for minor trims and a chainsaw to shape small trees and bushes.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
Water your garden between rainstorms to keep the summer flowering going. A general rule when watering flowers is to aim the water at the roots. A sprinkler system, garden hose, or drip irrigation system can get the job done. You don't need to water or even mist the blossoms themselves. Many flowers droop when wet, but they'll recover just fine once they dry off. Succulents are the exception to basic watering rules, so look up your specific types of succulents to optimize their care.

In addition to watering, keep an eye on your plants' nutrient intake. Add fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll absorb the proper nutrients.

Vertical Edible Gardening
If you like to grow your own food, take it vertical and consider growing organically. Many vegetable plants are vines and well-suited to climb a trellis or fence, so plant them next to one. The key to success is supporting the fruit, stem, and branches. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the stem or branches.

Fasten your plant to a pole or tomato cage with string, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to tie each plant loosely. Then the branches and leaves can sway in the breeze and the stem has room to grow wider. Strawberry, watermelon, squash, cucumber, and tomato plants need support as they bear fruit. Squash and melons require hammocks made of string, old nylons, a sling, or other stretchy fabric to support the heavy produce. All of these plants take up less space on the ground when grown vertically, which allows you to have walking room in between plants or fit more of them.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Set up vines to climb a trellis or arbor to provide both beauty and shade. Vines that are native to your area are a good choice for success and attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. Morning glories, clematis, and honeysuckle are common options for creating a shady and beautiful archway or pathway. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sun you receive, as not all of them thrive in full sun. As a bonus, many vines put out sweet-smelling flowers, so you can enjoy a delightful fragrance as you cool off in the shade.
