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 landscape fabric liner to keep them at bay. Be sure to get rid of weeds before they go to seed. 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 pollinators and pets — and wear a respirator and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

Is brown grass dead?

It could be, but it's also likely napping during those soaring temps. Cool-season grass goes dormant in the summer. It isn't usually dead — just crispy and brown. Here's how you can check to see if it's dormant: If you can easily pull out a blade of grass with no resistance, it's time to plant new sod or seed because the grass is a goner. Water dormant lawns deeply once every week. Warm-season lawns need water every few days in the summer. Those lawns stay green if they're healthy.

When's the best time to water my vegetable garden?

Ideally, water early in the morning. The next best time is in the evening, when the sun is setting. A noon or mid-day watering will evaporate quickly, so come back with an evening watering. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, grass, bushes, and vegetables. Whenever you water, 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.

How do I fertilize my flower garden?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, you'll need to make sure 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 your plants, whether you need a tomato fertilizer, shrub fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as suggested on the packaging. 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 beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Add awnings and sun sails to the shed or house for shade. 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 lounging in the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

What do I need for backyard entertaining?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you find enjoyable — it doesn't have to be a party. If you're focused on firing up the grill, make sure you know how to prep your grill for summer for a delicious outcome. Many people simply relax outdoors and chat. Whichever path you take for bonding with friends, extend the fun into the evening with proper outdoor lighting. For best results, learn how to rid your yard of pesky mosquitos, too.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Huntsville, TX

As summer stretches on, your landscaping and garden will weather more sun and heat than earlier in the season. You'll need to consider how to keep things cool. Just like we can get sunburned, grass and perennials can get scorched, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At The Home Depot Huntsville, TX Garden Center, we've got what you need to make the most of summer.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Scorched, or burnt, grass has a distinctively shaped discoloration that looks yellow. It happens when metal or plastic sits on the grass and bakes in the sunlight or a reflective surface shines continuously on your lawn. You'll often find it when you disturb something 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 scorched grass well and wait a week or so. You should see the signs of life returning by then. If it needs neutralizing after urine damage, you'll need to use patch and repair seed to fix it up or replace the grass.

Whether you're doing upkeep on your current lawn or patching the bald 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. In other words, if your lawn is shaded by trees and gets dappled sun or partial shade, make sure you plant grass that's not meant for full sun.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
You'll need to water your garden to keep it going between rainstorms. 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 will work well. Contrary to popular belief, the blooms themselves don't need to be watered or even misted. Many flowers droop when but recover once they dry. Succulents are an exception to basic watering rules, so look up your specific types of succulents to optimize their care.

In addition to watering, monitor 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 proper 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 fence or trellis, so plant them next to one and watch them climb. The key to success is supporting the branches, fruit, and stem. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the branches or stem.

Fasten the plant to a pole, trellis, or fence with string, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to attach each plant loosely. Then the branches and leaves can sway in the breeze and the stem has room to grow wider. Strawberry, cantaloupe, squash, cucumber, and tomato plants need support as they bear fruit. Squash and melons 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 have walking room in between plants or fit even more of them.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are the ultimate natural source of shade, and they can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees as accents, a few more to bear fruit, or a whole mini-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, plan so you know how to plant a tree, whether they're deciduous trees, evergreen saplings, or more mature trees.

A backyard forest can be the stuff of dreams, but research the trees you're planting beforehand. Consider how far the root ball extends outward, the full-grown size of the trees you want, and how deep the taproots go. 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. A tree with a full canopy of leaves catches wind like a sail, so make sure it's planted a safe distance from your home. 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.
