Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds in my garden?

Weeds might start peeking through in the garden beds, even if you put down fabric liner or 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 they go to seed. 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 skin or your lungs.

How do I fix grass damaged by pets?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is easy: Fix the scorched spot with a good long drink. Simply rehydrate those roots. It should perk up within a week. On the other hand, the news 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's the best time to water plants?

Ideally, water early in the morning. The next best time is in the evening, when the sun is setting. Watering during the heat of the day means a lot of the moisture will evaporate. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, trees, grass, and veggies. 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. Depending on your grass type, lawn's health, and climate, you may also want to look into applying a liquid lawn fertilizer.

When do I fertilize my veggie plants?

After you've planted your flowers or plants, ensure they stay 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 your plants, whether you need a shrub fertilizer, fruit tree fertilizer, or a 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 fertilizer won't burn the plants.

Do patio misters cool the air?

When you need a break from working in the yard, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a shed or house, make your own 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 you carry for backyard entertaining?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you find enjoyable — it doesn't have to be a bbq 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. 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 landscaping and garden will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the season. That means you'll want to consider how to keep things cool with irrigation and proper tending. Just like we can get sunburned, grass can get scorched and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. We've got advice to make it through the hotter months with flying colors.

Keep Your Garden Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the sod or grass you planted will grow taller than what's ideal. You'll need to maintain it so it can look fresh and manicured again. Keep the lawn in check with a 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. Prune them to better show off their verdant beauty with garden shears and hedge trimmers. 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.

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 bushes and trees — just be sure to aim the water at the roots. It'll help prolong the greenery and blooms and keep it from drying out.

Also, check for damaged areas on the bushes and trees. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for spots on leaves or bark, strange raised scars on the bark, or holes in leaves. When your leaves look like lace, insects or caterpillars are 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 they may ultimately end the life of your tree.

Vertical Vegetable Gardening
Grow produce vertically to save space. Many vegetable plants are vines and well-suited to climb a fence or trellis, so plant them next to one and watch them climb. The key to success is supporting the branches, stem, and fruit. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the branches or stem.

Fasten your plant to a fence, pole, or trellis with string, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to tie each plant loosely. Then the stem has room to grow wider and the leaves and branches can sway in the breeze. Strawberry, watermelon, squash, cucumber, and tomato plants need support as they bear fruit. Squash and melons require hammocks made of string, old nylons, a sling, or other stretchy fabric to support the heavy produce. All of these plants take up less space on the ground when grown vertically, which allows you to have walking room in between plants or fit more of them.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near an arched arbor or trellis so they'll climb it and give you both beauty and shade. Vines that are native to your area are a good choice for success and attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. Wisteria, ivy, and jasmine are common options for creating a shady and beautiful archway or pathway. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sunshine you receive, as not all of them thrive in full sun. As a bonus, many vines put out sweet-smelling flowers, so you can enjoy a delightful fragrance in the cool shade.
