Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How can I get rid of weeds?

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 the weeds' flowers dry out and and drop their seeds. Pull out weeds from the root in gardens you'll be eating from, 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 grass damaged by pets?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is easy: Fix the burnt spot with a good drink. Continue to water it regularly. It should perk up within the next week. On the other hand, the news 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 sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

When's the best time to water my garden?

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. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, veggies, trees, and grass. Give all the plants a thorough drink. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time on the clock. Depending on your grass type, lawn's health, and climate, you may also want to look into applying an organic lawn fertilizer.

What are some tips to keep my plants healthy?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, ensure they're well-fed and hydrated. 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, fertilizer for veggie plants, fruit tree 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.

How can I cool off my patio?

When you need a break from gardening in the sun, shelter under a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Add awnings and sun sails to the house or shed to create shadowy spots to rest beneath. However, sometimes shade isn't enough because it's extremely humid out. That's when a patio mister or misting fan can help cool the air and turn a stifling afternoon into a refreshingly relaxing day. Go back to lounging in the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

How can I make my patio look special for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need 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. New outdoor lounge furniture, strings of outdoor lights, or even an outdoor rug can add character to a backyard oasis.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Brice Road

As we stretch into the dog days of summer, your landscaping and garden will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the year. You'll need to consider how to keep things cool with irrigation, proper tending, and shade. You might also need ways to beat the heat. We've got guidance to make it through the hotter months.

Grow a Healthy Lawn
If you're concerned that your lawn has dry and crispy blades of grass, don't panic just yet. It's possible that you've got a cool season grass that's going to go dormant and turn brown in the heat of the summer. If that's the case, it won't be a patchy brown, but brown everywhere. Gently pull out a blade of grass to check if it's still got live roots: If it comes right out, the grass is probably dead and will need to be replaced with new grass seed or sod. If it doesn't come right out, it's dormant. That means it's growing and resting underground. Dormant grass should be watered deeply once or twice a week but not fertilized.

For warm-season grass that stays green in the summer, water a bit every few days and deeply once a week. The amount of water should add up to about an inch each week. Make sure not to overwater, and let the lawn dry out after heavy rains before you get out the hose or sprinkler again. If it's especially hot out, water when the top two inches of soil is dry to the touch. It's ok to let it grow a little taller this time of the year, as cutting it too short isn't healthy for this kind of lawn.

Care for Your Shrubs and Trees
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the bushes, shrubs, and trees. They may need less watering than delicate flowers or vegetable plants, but they can still get dry and parched in the summer heat. It's not hard to learn how to water trees — just aim the water at the roots. It'll help prolong the foliage 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 leaves or bark, or a network of raised lines on tree bark. When your leaves look like lace, caterpillars or insects are eating them. Spots may indicate several issues ranging from bugs to fungus. 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 they may ultimately end the life of your tree or shrub.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, add herbs. 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 regular black dirt. Instead, they grow in a mix of rock chips, sand, or perlite.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a stunning and natural source of shade, and they can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees or a forest, keep in mind this is a long-term commitment. When they're healthy, trees live many decades — and some for hundreds of years. Before you shop, read up on how to plant a tree, whether they're deciduous trees, evergreen saplings, or more mature trees.

A backyard woodland can be the stuff of dreams, but research the trees you're planting beforehand. Consider the full-grown size of the trees, how far the roots extend outward and how deep the taproots go. Plant your trees far from underground plumbing, as their strong roots will seek water and curl into piping to get it. Leave a safe distance from your home, as large trees can catch the wind if not properly pruned. If you've planned accordingly, found trees you love, and know the ideal 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.
