Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What can I do about weeds in my lawn?

Weeds are likely poking 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 out 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 rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

Is my grass dead?

It could be, but it's also likely just taking a break during those soaring summer temps. Cool-season grass goes dormant in the summer, so it's alive but sleeping. Here's how you can check on it: If you tug on a grass blade and it pulls right out, it's time to plant new sod or grass seed because the grass is a goner. Water dormant lawns deeply but not often. Warm-season lawns need water every few days in the summer. Those lawns stay green if they're healthy.

When should I water my flower garden?

If you can water during the early morning or in the evening, that's ideal. A noon or mid-day watering will evaporate quickly, so come back with an evening watering. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, bushes, 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 lawn's health, grass type, and climate, you may also want to look into applying a lawn fertilizer.

When do I fertilize my flowers?

After 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 your plants, whether you need a fertilizer for vegetable plants, flower 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.

Can I make shady places to stay cool in the summer?

When you need a break from gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Attach awnings and sun sails to the house or shed for 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 make a stifling afternoon into a relaxing day. Go back to lounging in the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

What do you carry for backyard entertaining?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you'd like it to be — it doesn't have to be a bbq party. If you're focused on firing up the grill, make sure you know how to clean a grill afterward. Many people simply relax outdoors and chat all day. However you bond with friends, extend the fun into the evening with proper outdoor lighting and a bug-free summer yard without pesky mosquitos.

As summer rolls in, your garden and landscaping will weather more intense heat and UV rays than earlier in the year. That means you'll need to consider how to keep things cool with irrigation and proper tending. Just like we can get sunburned, grass and plants can get scorched, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. We've got guidance to make it through the hotter months with flying colors.

Grow a Healthy Lawn
If you're worried that your lawn has brown and crispy blades of grass, don't panic. It's possible that you've got a cool season grass that goes dormant and turns brown in the heat of the summer. If that's the case, it'll be an overall shade of brown, but not green with brown patches. Gently pull out a blade of grass to check if it's still got live roots: If it comes right out, the grass is likely dead and will need to be replaced with new sod or grass seed. If the blade of grass doesn't come right out, it's dormant. That means it's growing and resting beneath the surface. Dormant grass should be watered deeply once or twice a week — if it doesn't rain — but don't fertilize it.

For warm-season grass that stays green in the summer, water a bit every few days and deeply once a week. The amount of water should add up to about an inch per week. Make sure not to overwater, and allow the lawn to dry out after heavy rains before you get out the hose or sprinkler again. If it's especially hot out, water when the top two inches of soil is dry to the touch. It's ok to let the grass grow a little taller this time of the year, as cutting your lawn too short isn't healthy for it.

Care for Your Shrubs and Trees
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the trees, and bushes. 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 and bushes — 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, trees, and shrubs. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for leaves full of holes, a network of raised lines on the bark, or spots on bark or leaves. When your leaves look like lace, something is eating them. Spots may indicate many 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, try herb gardening. 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 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 regular black dirt. Instead, they grow in a mixture of perlite, sand, or rock chips.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are the ultimate natural source of shade, 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, remember this is a long-term commitment. When they're healthy, trees live many decades — and some for hundreds of years. Before you shop, look into how to plant a tree, whether they're evergreens, deciduous tree saplings, or more mature trees.

A backyard woodland can be the stuff of dreams, but research the trees you're planting beforehand. Consider how deep the taproots go, how far the roots extend outward, and the full-grown size of the trees. Plant your trees far from underground plumbing, as their strong roots will seek water and wend into piping to get it. As majestic as trees are, it's essential 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 ideal places to put them, get planting. That way, you can enjoy the leaves rustling in the breeze and dappled shade sooner rather than later.
