Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How can I get rid of weeds?

Weeds are likely poking through in the garden beds, even if you put down mulch or a 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 weeds from the root in edible flower or vegetable 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 pollinators and pets — and wear a respirator 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 simple: Fix the scorched spot with a good long drink. Just rehydrate those roots. It should perk up within the next week. The method for how to treat grass from dog urine isn't as simple. Grass damaged by pets must be removed, neutralized, and replaced in fresh soil with new grass seed, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

What are some vertical gardening benefits?

As the veggies and plants 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, it's easy to miss your harvest among the shadowy leaves. Supporting the plants as they grow upright means your upkeep will be less overwhelming when they're huge at the end of summer.

When do I fertilize my garden?

Once you've planted your plants or flowers, make sure they stay well-fed and hydrated. 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 flower fertilizer, fertilizer for vegetable plants, 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 keep cool this summer?

When you need a break from working in the yard, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Attach awnings and shade sails to the shed or house for shade. 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 make 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 backyard makeover?

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 patio collection from scratch to do it. Even a minor backyard refresh can make a big difference. New outdoor lounge furniture, outdoor rugs, or even outdoor string lights can breathe new life into a backyard oasis.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Easley

As we stretch into the dog days of summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more intense heat and UV rays than earlier in the year. You'll want to consider how to keep things cool. Just like we can get sunburned, grass and flowers can get scorched, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. We've got advice to make it through the hotter months.

Keep Your Lawn Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the grass or sod you planted will grow taller than what's ideal. It's going to need some maintenance to look fresh and manicured. Keep the lawn in check with a push lawn mower and a string trimmer to knock down any tall grass around sidewalks, fences, or buildings.

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 a more manicured state 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 small trees and bushes.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
Water your garden to keep it alive between rainstorms and keep the summer flowering humming along. A general rule when watering flowers is to aim the water at the roots. A sprinkler or sprinkler system, drip irrigation system, or garden hose can get the job done. Contrary to popular belief, the blooms themselves don't need to be watered or even misted. Many flowers droop and wilt when they get but recover once they dry. Succulents are, of course, the exception to basic watering rules, so look up your specific types of succulents to optimize their care.

In addition to watering them regularly, keep an eye on your plants' nutrient intake. Use fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll absorb the correct 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. 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 tie each plant loosely. Then the stem has room to grow wider and the leaves and branches can sway in the breeze. 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 weighty produce. All of these plants take up less space on the ground this way, which allows you to have walking room in between plants or fit even more of them.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near a trellis or arbor so they'll climb it and give you both shade and beauty. Vines that are native to your area are a good choice for success and attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. Grape vines are a classic choice, but they take time to mature, so you'll enjoy dappled shade but no grapes for a few years. 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 with a delightful fragrance you can enjoy.
