Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds?

Weeds might start peeking through in the garden beds, even if you put down landscape fabric liner or mulch to keep them at bay. Be sure to get rid of weeds before the weeds' flowers dry out and and drop their seeds. 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-duty rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

How do I fix grass damaged by pets?

You'll need to rehydrate those roots. The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the scorched spot with a long drink, then continue to water it regularly. It should perk up over the course of a week. On the other hand, the method for how to treat grass from dog urine isn't as simple. Grass damaged by pets must be removed, neutralized, and replaced in fresh soil with new grass, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

What are the benefits of vertical gardening?

As the plants and veggies grow, the harvest will be easier to keep healthy. You can see any pests or evidence of wildlife eating your produce and act accordingly. When your fruits and vegetables are ready to pick, you'll see them right away, so you can enjoy them at their freshest. If these same plants grow along the ground, you may miss your harvest under the shadowy leaves. Supporting the plants as they grow upright means your upkeep will be less overwhelming when you harvest your garden veggies.

What are some tips to keep my garden healthy?

After you've planted your flowers or plants, 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 fruit tree fertilizer, shrub fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as recommended 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. Attach awnings and shade sails to the shed or house to create shadowy spots to rest beneath. 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 backyard look special for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous summertime weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need to do a full patio makeover or to create your patio collection from scratch to do it. Even a minor backyard refresh can make a big difference. A new outdoor rug, outdoor lounge furniture, or even outdoor string lights can bring character to a backyard.

As the calendar turns to summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the season. You'll need to consider how to keep things cool. You might also need ways to beat the heat. Let us help. At the Garden Center in Little York, we've got what you need to make the most of summer.

Keep Your Garden Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the grass you planted will grow taller than what's ideal. Eventually, 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 sidewalks, fences, or buildings.

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. Manicure them into a beautiful shape 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 small trees and bushes.

Care for Your Shrubs and Trees
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the bushes, trees, and shrubs. They may need less watering than delicate flowers, but they can still get dry and parched in the summer heat. It's not hard to learn how to water shrubs and trees — 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 trees 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, spots on bark or leaves, or leaves full of holes. When your leaves look like lace, caterpillars or insects are 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 they may ultimately end the life of your tree.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, try herb gardening. They grow easily in pots, both indoors and outdoors, and are often low-maintenance. 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 window sill, porch, 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 rock chips, perlite, or sand.

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 as accents, a few more to bear fruit, or a whole mini-forest, keep in mind this is a long-term commitment. Trees live many decades when they're healthy. Before you shop, read up on 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 deep the taproots go, how far the root ball extends outward, and the full-grown size of the trees you want. Plant your trees far from underground plumbing, as their strong roots will seek water and curl into piping to get it. Leave a safe distance from your home, as large trees can catch the wind if not properly pruned. If you've planned accordingly, found trees you love, and know the best 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.
