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. Pull out weeds from the root in edible flower or vegetable gardens, and dig up the roots if the weed snapped off without them. Be sure to get them before the weeds' flowers dry out and and drop their seeds. 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 grass damaged by pets?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the scorched spot with a long drink. Continue to water it regularly. 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, or patch and repair grass seed.

When should I water my plants?

Ideally, water early in the morning. The next best time is in the evening, when the sun is past its peak. 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, trees, veggies, and grass. Give all the plants a thorough drink. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time. Depending on your grass type, lawn's health, and climate, you may also want to look into applying a liquid lawn fertilizer.

How do I fertilize my veggie garden?

After you've planted your flowers or plants, make sure they're 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, fruit tree fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as instructed on the packaging. Be sure to water immediately after, as directed, so the fertilizer won't burn the plants.

How can I create shade?

When you need a break from gardening in the sun, shelter under a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a shed or house, create shade by attaching shade sails and awnings. 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 swinging in a hammock when that water-cooled air is ready.

How can I do a quick patio makeover 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 furniture collection from scratch to do it. Even a minor backyard refresh can make a big difference. New outdoor lounge furniture, outdoor string lights, or even an outdoor rug can bring character to a backyard.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Hendersonville

As we continue deeper into summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the season. You'll want to consider how to keep things cool with proper tending, irrigation, and shade. Just like we can get sunburned, grass can get scorched and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At the Garden Center in Hendersonville, we've got what you need to make the most of summer.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Scorched, or burnt, grass has an oddly shaped discoloration that isn't green. 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 often discover it when you disturb something that's been sitting out in the yard, like a garden hose or sprinkler. Car mirrors or windows can also scorch grass when the sun angle is just right.

Water scorched 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 doing upkeep on your current lawn or patching the sparse spots, keep in mind which type of grass it is. Match the kind of grass to how much sun your lawn gets — or to the existing grass type if you're doing patch repair. For example, if your lawn gets full sun, make sure you plant sod that thrives in full sun instead of grass that likes dappled sun or shade.

Care for Your Shrubs and Trees
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 dry and parched in the summer heat. It's not hard to learn how to water trees — just be sure to aim the water at the roots. It'll help grow strong leaves and flowers. If it's a fruiting tree, it'll also help give it enough moisture to put out blossoms and fruit 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 spots on leaves or bark, leaves full of holes, or a network of raised lines on the bark. When your leaves look like lace, insects or caterpillars are eating them. Spots may indicate many 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 shrub.

Vertical Vegetable 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 fence or trellis, so plant them next to one. The key to success is supporting the branches, fruit, and stem. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the stem or branches.

Fasten the plant to a trellis, pole, or tomato cage with twine, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to attach each plant loosely. Then the stem has room to grow wider and the branches and leaves can sway in the breeze. Strawberry, cantaloupe, 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. 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.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a stunning and natural source of shade, They can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees or a small 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 evergreens, deciduous tree 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 root ball extends outward, and the full-grown size of the trees you want. Plant your trees far from underground plumbing, as their strong roots will seek water and curl into piping to get it. As majestic as trees are, it's important to also consider how and where they'd fall if disease or a major storm 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.
