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 mulch to keep them at bay. Pull weeds from the root in gardens you'll be eating from, and dig up the roots if the weed snapped off without them. Be sure to get rid of weeds before they go to seed. If you'd like to treat weeds with weed killer, check that it's safe for pollinators and pets — and wear a respirator mask and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

How do I fix burnt grass?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is easy: Fix the burnt spot with a good 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 replanted in fresh soil with new grass, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

When should I water my yard?

Ideally, water early in the morning. The next best time is in the evening, when the sun is setting. Watering during the heat of the day means a lot of the moisture will evaporate. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, trees, vegetables, and grass. Whenever you water, give all the plants a thorough drink, and don't skip it because it's not the best time. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time on the clock. Depending on your climate, grass type, and lawn health, you may also want to look into applying a lawn fertilizer.

How do I keep my garden healthy?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, make sure they stay 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 whatever you're growing, whether you need a fertilizer for veggie plants, flower fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as recommended on the packaging. 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 gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Add awnings and sun sails to the house or shed 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 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 summertime 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 breathe new life into a patio.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Katy

As we continue deeper into summer, your landscaping and garden will weather more sun and heat than earlier in the season. That means you'll want to consider how to keep things cool with shade and irrigation. Just like we can get sunburned, garden flowers can dry out and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At The Home Depot Katy Garden Center, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months.

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

Bushes, trees, and shrubs 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 back to better 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 small trees and bushes.

Care for Your Shrubs and Trees
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the trees, shrubs, and bushes. 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 make sure you aim the water at the roots. It'll help prolong the greenery and blossoms and keep it from turning yellow or brown.

Also, check for damaged areas on the trees and shrubs. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for strange raised scars on tree bark, holes in leaves, or spots on bark or leaves. When your leaves look like lace, insects or caterpillars are eating them. Spots may indicate a number of issues ranging from fungus to bugs. 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 a severe case may kill part or all of your tree.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, add herbs. It's easy to learn how to grow herbs indoors, but you can raise herbs outdoors, too. 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 just keep them in small decorative pots on a sunny porch, window sill, or even in wall planters. Herbs also work well in a hydroponic garden, which means they don't grow in soil. Instead, they grow in a mixture of sand, rock chips, or perlite.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines to climb a trellis or arbor to provide both beauty and shade. Vine plants that are native to your area are a good choice for success and attract pollinators. Grape vines are a classic choice, but they take time to mature, so you'll have shade without 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 as you cool off in the shade.
