Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds in my lawn?

Weeds might start peeking 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 mask and heavy rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

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 a week. The method for how to treat grass from dog urine isn't as straightforward. Grass damaged by pets must be removed, neutralized, and replanted in fresh soil with new sod, 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. Watering during the heat of the day means a lot of the moisture will evaporate. This applies to whatever you're growing: grass, trees, vegetables, and plants. 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 an organic lawn fertilizer.

How do I keep my flowers healthy?

After you've planted your flowers or plants, you'll need to make sure they stay hydrated and well-fed. 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 flower fertilizer, vegetable fertilizer, tomato 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 house or shed, create 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 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 cookout. 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 all afternoon. Whichever path you take for bonding with friends, you can 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 sun and heat than earlier in the year. That means you'll need to consider how to keep things cool with proper tending, shade, and irrigation. Just like we can get sunburned, grass can get scorched, trees can lose their leaves prematurely, and plants can dry out. Let us help. At the Garden Center in Lawton, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months with flying colors.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Scorched, or burnt, grass has a distinctively shaped discolored spot that isn't green. It happens when a reflective surface shines continuously on your lawn or metal or plastic sits on the grass and bakes in the sunlight. You'll find it when you move something that's been sitting out in the yard, like a sprinkler or garden hose. Car windows or mirrors can also scorch grass when the sun angle is right.

Water burnt grass well and wait a week. You should see the signs of life returning by then. If it's damaged by pet urine or otherwise unsalvageable, you'll need to replace the grass or use patch and repair seed to fix it up.

Whether you're patching a lawn or doing upkeep on your current one, keep in mind which type of grass it is. Match the kind of grass to your lawn if you're doing patch repair. When planting new grass, choose a variety that works with the amount of sun your lawn gets. In other words, if buildings shade your lawn so it gets partial shade or dappled sun, make sure you plant sod that prefers shade.

Care for Your Trees and Shrubs
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the shrubs and trees. They may need less watering than vegetable plants, but they can still get parched and dry in the summer heat. It's not hard to learn how to water shrubs and trees — just make sure you 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 trees, bushes, and shrubs. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for a network of raised lines on tree bark, leaves full of holes, 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 they may ultimately end the life of your tree or shrub.

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. The key to success is supporting the stem, fruit, and branches. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the stem or branches.

Fasten the plant to a trellis, fence, or pole with string, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to tie each plant loosely. Then the leaves and branches can sway in the breeze and the stem has room to grow wider. Strawberry, pumpkin, squash, cucumber, and tomato plants need support as they bear fruit. Melons and squash require hammocks made of old nylons, string, a sling, or other stretchy fabric to support the weighty produce. All of these plants take up less space on the ground this way, 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 forest, remember 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 far the root ball extends outward, the full-grown size of the trees, and how deep the taproots go. Plant your trees far from water pipes, 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 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.
