Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds in my edible garden?

Weeds might start peeking 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 weeds from the root in edible 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 it doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

Is brown grass dead?

It could be, but it's also likely just taking a break during those soaring temps. Cool-season grass goes dormant in the summer. It turns brown and crispy but isn't usually dead. You can check to verify though: If you can easily pull out a blade of grass with no resistance, it's time to plant new seed or sod because the grass is a goner. Water dormant lawns deeply and infrequently. Warm-season grass needs water every few days in the summer. It should stay green if it's healthy.

When should I water my vegetable garden?

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. 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.

What are some tips to keep my plants healthy?

Once you've planted your plants or flowers, you'll need to make sure they're 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 shrub fertilizer, tomato fertilizer, or a 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.

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

When you need a break from working in the yard, shelter under a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a house or shed, make your own shade by attaching sun 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 enjoying the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

What do I need for backyard entertaining?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you'd like it to be — it doesn't have to be a barbeque 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 away the afternoon or maybe cook a meal in an outdoor kitchen instead. However you bond 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 Kyle

As we stretch into the dog days of summer, your landscaping and garden will weather more sun and heat than earlier in the year. That means you'll want to consider how to keep things cool with irrigation, proper tending, and shade. You might also need ways to beat the heat. Let us help. At The Home Depot Tool Garden Center in Kyle, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months.

Grow a Healthy Lawn
If you're worried that your lawn has dried-out and brown blades of grass, don't worry just yet. It's possible that you've got a cool season grass that basically goes to sleep 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 tug out a blade of grass to check the roots: If it comes right out, the grass is likely dead and you'll need to replace it. If the piece of grass doesn't pull right out, it's dormant. That means it's resting but still alive beneath the surface. Water dormant grass deeply once or twice per week, but avoid fertilizer.

Warm-season grass stays green in the summer. If you have this kind of lawn, water it deeply once a week. Give it another drink every day or two, depending on your weather. Be careful not to overwater, and let the lawn dry out after heavy rains before you get out the sprinkler or hose again. Water your lawn when the top two inches of soil is dry to the touch. You can test with your finger. This might happen quicker than you'd think during drought. It's ok to let the grass grow taller this time of the year, as cutting your lawn too short isn't healthy for it.

Care for Your Trees and Shrubs
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 — just make sure you aim the water at the roots. It'll help prolong the greenery and blooms and keep it from turning yellow.

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 holes in leaves, spots on bark or leaves, or a network of raised lines on tree bark. When your leaves look like lace, something is eating them. Spots may indicate several 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 a severe case may kill part or all of your bushes or trees.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, try herb gardening. They're generally low-maintenance. 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.

Planting herbs in the ground can be tricky, 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 rock chips, perlite, or sand.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near an arbor or trellis so they'll climb the structure and give you both shade and beauty. Go with vine plants that are native to your area to attract bees and other pollinators. Jasmine, ivy, and wisteria are common options for creating a shady and beautiful archway or pathway. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sun you receive, as some like full sun and others don't. As a bonus, many vines put out sweet-smelling flowers with a delightful fragrance you can enjoy as you cool off in the shade.
