Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds in the grass?

Weeds might start peeking through in the garden beds, even if you put down mulch to keep them at bay. Be sure to get rid of weeds before they go to seed. Pull 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 pets and pollinators — and wear a respirator and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

How do I fix burned grass?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the burnt spot with a good drink. Simply rehydrate those roots. It should perk up by the following 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.

Is it good to have a vertical garden?

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

When do I fertilize my plants?

Once you've planted your plants or flowers, you'll need to make sure they stay 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 your plants, whether you need a shrub fertilizer, fruit tree fertilizer, or a garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as instructed on the packaging. More is not better here. 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 beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a shed or house, create shade by attaching awnings and sun 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 make a stifling afternoon into a relaxing day. Go back to lounging in the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

What do I need for backyard entertaining?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you find enjoyable — it doesn't have to be a gardening party. Some focus on the grill or fire pit, while others concentrate on yard games. Many people simply relax outdoors and chat. However you bond with friends, you can extend the fun into the evening with proper outdoor lighting. For best results, learn how to rid your yard of pesky mosquitos, too.

As summer rolls in, your garden and landscaping will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the season. You'll want to consider how to keep things cool with proper tending and irrigation. Just like we can get sunburned, garden flowers can dry out, grass can get scorched, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. We've got advice to help you, your lawn, and your garden make it through the hotter months with flying colors.

Grow a Healthy Lawn
If you're concerned that your lawn has brown and dry blades of grass, don't panic just yet. It's possible that you've got a cool season grass that basically goes to sleep and turns brown in the summertime heat. 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 probably dead and you'll need to replace it. If it doesn't pull right out, it's dormant. That means it's growing and resting underground. Water dormant grass deeply once or twice every 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 allow the lawn to dry out after heavy rains before you get out the hose or sprinkler again. Water your yard 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 extreme hot spells or drought. It's ok to let the grass grow a little taller this time of the year, as cutting it too short isn't healthy for this kind of lawn.

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

In addition to watering them regularly, monitor the nutrients your plants are getting. Apply fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll enjoy a balanced diet with the correct nutrients.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For fresh 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.

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 perlite, rock chips, or sand.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a stunning and natural source of shade, and 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.

Although trees framing a house may look picturesque, you should research the specifics of those trees before you plant them. Consider how deep the taproots go, how far the root ball extends 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. A tree with a full canopy of leaves catches wind like a sail, so make sure it's planted a safe distance from your home. 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.
