Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What are good ways to 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 they go to seed. Pull 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 and heavy rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

How do I fix yellow grass?

You'll need to rehydrate those roots. The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the scorched spot with a good long drink, then continue to water it regularly. It should perk up over the course of a 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 grass seed, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

What are some vertical gardening benefits?

As the plants and veggies grow, keeping your harvest healthy is easier. You can see any pests or evidence of wildlife eating your produce and treat the issue as you see fit. When your fruits and vegetables mature and are ready to pick, you'll see them immediately, so you can enjoy them at their freshest. If these same plants grow along the ground, you may miss your first harvest under the shadowy leaves. Supporting the plants as they grow upright means your upkeep will be less overwhelming when you harvest your garden veggies.

How do I keep my garden healthy?

Once you've planted your plants or flowers, ensure they stay 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 whatever you're growing, whether you need a shrub fertilizer, fruit tree fertilizer, or a garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as suggested on the packaging. More is not better here. Be sure to water immediately after, as directed, so the fertilizer won't burn the plants.

Can I lower the humidity in 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 shed or house to create shady spots. 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 turn a stifling afternoon into a refreshingly relaxing day. Go back to swinging in a hammock when that water-cooled air is ready.

How can I create an outdoor oasis for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous summertime 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. New outdoor lounge furniture, strings of outdoor lights, or even an outdoor rug can breathe new life into a backyard.

The Home Depot Garden Center at E Delray Beach

As summer stretches on, your landscaping and garden will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the season. You'll want to consider how to keep things cool. Just like we can get sunburned, annuals and grass can dry out, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. We've got guidance to help you, your garden, and your lawn make it through the hotter months with flying colors.

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

Trees, shrubs, 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 to show off their verdant beauty with garden shears and hedge trimmers. 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 bushes and small trees.

Care for Your Trees and Shrubs
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the shrubs and trees. They may need less watering than vegetable plants or delicate flowers, but they can still get dry and parched in the summer heat. It's not hard to learn how to water trees and shrubs — 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 and trees. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for spots on bark or leaves, a network of raised lines on tree bark, or leaves full of holes. 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 end the life of your trees or bushes.

Vertical Edible Gardening
For summer gardening, grow vegetables vertically to conserve space. Many vegetable plants are vines and well-suited to climb a fence or trellis, so plant them next to one and watch them climb. Support the stem itself, as well as the junctions just below where the branches grow off the stem. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the branches or stem.

Fasten your plant to a pole or tomato cage with string, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to attach each plant loosely. Then the leaves and branches 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. Melons and squash require hammocks made of old nylons, string, a sling, or other stretchy fabric to support the weighty produce. These plants take up less space on the ground when grown vertically, which allows you to fit even more plants or have walking room in between.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a 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. Trees live many decades when they're healthy. Before you shop, plan so you know how to plant a tree, whether they're deciduous trees, evergreen saplings, or more mature trees.

A house framed by beautiful trees can seem picture-perfect, but research the specific trees you want before planting them. Consider how deep the taproots go, how far the roots extend outward, and the full-grown size of the trees. Trees will always find the easiest source of water, so be sure to plant them away from the water lines so they won't be damaged by moisture-seeking roots. As majestic as trees are, it's important to also consider how and where they'd fall if a severe storm or disease weakened them. If you've planned accordingly, found trees you love, and know the best 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.
