Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds in my flower garden?

Weeds are likely poking 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 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 pets and pollinators — and wear a respirator mask and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

How do I fix burned grass?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the scorched spot with a good long drink. 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 simple. 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 should I water my garden?

If you can water during the early morning or in the evening, that's ideal. Watering during the heat of the day means a lot of the moisture will evaporate. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, grass, bushes, and veggies. Whenever you water, give all the plants a thorough drink. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time. Depending on your grass type, climate, and lawn health, you may also want to look into applying a lawn fertilizer.

How do I fertilize my veggie garden?

After you've planted your plants or flowers, you'll need to make sure they stay hydrated and well-fed. Choose a synthetic or an organic 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 flower fertilizer, vegetable fertilizer, shrub fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as recommended on the packaging. More is not better here. Be sure to water immediately after, as directed, so the fertilizer won't burn the plants.

Do you carry patio misters?

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 shed or house, make your own shade by attaching sun sails and awnings. However, sometimes shade isn't enough because it's just too humid out. 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 swinging in a hammock when that water-cooled air is ready.

How do I entertain on the patio?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you find enjoyable — it doesn't have to be a cookout. Some focus on the grill or fire pit, while others concentrate on yard games. Many people simply relax outdoors and chat away the afternoon or maybe cook a meal in an outdoor kitchen instead. Whichever path you take for bonding with friends, you can extend the fun into the evening with proper outdoor lighting and a bug-free summer yard without pesky mosquitos.

As we stretch into summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more intense heat and UV rays than earlier in the year. You'll need to consider how to keep things cool. Just like we can get sunburned, grass and annuals can get scorched, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At your Garden Center in Belton, we've got what you need to make the most of summer.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Burnt, or scorched, grass has a distinctively shaped discoloration that looks yellow. It happens when plastic or metal sits on the grass and bakes in the sunlight or a reflective surface shines continuously on your lawn. You'll find it once you disturb something that's been sitting out in the yard, like a trash can or garden hose. Car mirrors or windows can also scorch grass when the sun angle is just right.

Water burnt grass well and wait a week. You should see the signs of life returning by then. If it's damaged beyond repair by pet behavior or extreme wear, you'll need to replace the grass or use patch and repair seed to fix it up.

Whether you're patching a lawn or doing upkeep on your current one, keep in mind which type of grass it is. Match the grass type to how much sun your lawn gets — or to the existing grass type if you're doing patch repair. In other words, if buildings shade your lawn so it gets dappled sun or partial shade, make sure you plant grass that's not meant for full sun.

Care for Your Trees and Shrubs
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the trees, bushes, and shrubs. They may need less watering than vegetable plants, but they can still get parched and dry in the summer heat. It's not hard to learn how to water bushes and trees — just aim the water at the roots. It'll help prolong the greenery and blossoms and keep it from drying out.

Also, check for damaged areas on the bushes, trees, and shrubs. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for leaves full of holes, spots on bark or leaves, or strange raised scars on tree bark. When your leaves look like lace, insects or caterpillars are eating them. Spots may indicate a number of issues ranging from fungus to bugs. Those scar-like lines on tree bark could mean your tree is infected with borers, an insect that lays eggs inside the bark and then burrows out after it hatches. Any of these issues should be researched and cared for as soon as possible, as a severe case may kill part or all of your tree or shrub.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, try herb gardening. They're generally low-maintenance and grow easily in pots, both indoors and outdoors. If you grow herbs outdoors, stick to heat-loving herbs that'll endure the summer temperatures, and consider a hanging herb garden.

It can be tricky to plant herbs in the ground, as many of them — especially mint — are invasive and will take over your yard. So keep them in small decorative pots on a sunny window sill, porch, or even in wall planters. Herbs also work well in a hydroponic garden, which means they don't grow in soil. Instead, they grow in a mixture of rock chips, perlite, or sand.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a natural source of shade, They can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees or a small forest, remember this is a long-term commitment. Trees live many decades when they're healthy. Before you shop, read up on how to plant a tree, whether they're deciduous trees, evergreen saplings, or more mature trees.

Although trees framing a house may look picturesque, you should research the specifics of those trees before you plant them. Consider the full-grown size of the trees, how far the roots extend outward and how deep the taproots go. Trees will always find the most accessible source of water, so be sure to plant them away from your water pipes to avoid roots growing into them. As majestic as trees are, it's important to also consider how and where they'd fall if a major storm or disease weakened them. If you've planned accordingly, found trees you love, and know the perfect places to put them, get planting. That way, you can enjoy natural shade and the soothing sound of leaves rustling in the breeze sooner rather than later.
