Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How can I 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 out weeds from the root in edible flower or vegetable gardens, and dig up the roots if the weed snapped off without them. Be sure to get them before the weeds' flowers dry out and and drop their seeds. 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.

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 good drink. Just rehydrate those roots. It should perk up within the next week. The method for how to treat grass from dog urine isn't as straightforward. Grass damaged by pets must be removed, neutralized, and replaced in fresh soil with new sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

When should I water my vegetable garden?

If you can water during the early morning or in the evening, that's ideal. Watering during the heat of the day means a lot of the moisture will evaporate. This applies to whatever you're growing: grass, bushes, vegetables, and plants. Whenever you water, give all the plants a thorough drink, and don't skip it just because it's not the best time. 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?

After you've planted your flowers or plants, you'll need to make sure they're 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 whatever you're growing, whether you need a tomato fertilizer, shrub fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as suggested on the packaging. More is not better here. Be sure to water immediately after, as directed, so the plants won't be burned by the fertilizer.

Do you carry patio misters?

When you need a break from gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a shed or house, create shade by attaching awnings and shade sails. 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 transform a stifling afternoon into a relaxing day. Go back to enjoying the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

How can I do a quick backyard makeover for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need to do 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. A new outdoor rug, outdoor lounge furniture, or even a string of outdoor lights can breathe new life into an outdoor space.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Leesburg, FL

As we stretch into the dog days of summer, your landscaping and garden will weather more intense heat and UV rays than earlier in the year. You'll need to consider how to keep things cool. You might also need ways to beat the heat. Let us help. At The Home Depot Tool Garden Center in Leesburg, FL, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months with flying colors.

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

Shrubs, trees, and bushes 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 a more manicured state with the best hedge trimmers for your shrubs. 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 bushes and small trees.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
As outlined in these garden watering tips, much of the upkeep comes down to balancing hydration and sunlight. You'll need both to keep greenery growing growing and spirits high with summer flowering. A general rule when watering plants is to aim the water at the roots. A drip irrigation system, sprinkler, or garden hose will do the job. Contrary to popular belief, the blooms themselves don't need to be watered or even misted. Many flowers wilt when they get but recover once they dry off. Succulents are an exception to basic watering rules, so look up your specific types of succulents to optimize their care.

In addition to watering, keep an eye on the nutrients your plants are getting. Use fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll enjoy a balanced diet with the right nutrients.

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 as a beautiful hanging garden on a wall. 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 a natural source of shade, and they can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees or a 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, read up on how to plant a tree, whether they're evergreens, deciduous tree saplings, or more mature trees.

Although trees framing a house may look picturesque, you should research the specifics of those trees before you plant them. Think about how far the roots extend outward, the full-grown size of the trees you want, and how deep the taproots go. 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 major 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 the leaves rustling in the breeze and dappled shade sooner rather than later.
