Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What are good ways to get rid of 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. Pull weeds from the root in edible gardens, and dig up the roots if the weed snapped off without them. Be sure to get rid of weeds before they go to seed. 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 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 burnt spot with a good drink, then continue to water it regularly. It should perk up by the following week. 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 sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

Is it good to have a vertical garden?

As the plants and veggies grow, keeping your harvest healthy is easier. You can see any pests or evidence of wildlife eating your produce and act accordingly. When your fruits and vegetables mature and 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 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?

After you've planted your flowers or plants, ensure 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 shrub fertilizer, fruit tree fertilizer, or a garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as directed on the packaging. Be sure to water immediately after, as directed, so the plants won't be burned by the fertilizer.

How can I cool off my patio?

When you need a break from working in the yard, shelter under a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a house or shed, make your own shade by attaching awnings and shade sails. 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 swinging in a hammock when that water-cooled air is ready.

What do I need for backyard entertaining?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you'd like it to be — it doesn't have to be a party. Some focus on the grill or fire pit, while others concentrate on yard games. Many people simply relax outdoors and chat away the afternoon or maybe cook a meal in an outdoor kitchen instead. Whichever path you take for bonding with friends, you can extend the fun into the evening with proper outdoor lighting and a bug-free yard without pesky mosquitos.

The Home Depot Garden Center at N Reno

As we continue deeper into summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the season. That means you'll need to consider how to keep things cool with proper tending and irrigation. Just like we can get sunburned, grass and perennials can get scorched, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. We've got guidance to help your lawn, your garden, and your family make it through the hotter months.

Keep Your Garden Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the grass or sod 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 trees and hardscaping.

Trees and shrubs 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 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.

Care for Your Trees and Shrubs
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the trees, shrubs, and bushes. They may need less watering than vegetable plants, 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 grow strong leaves and flowers. If it's a fruiting tree, it'll also help give it enough moisture to put out blossoms and fruit and keep it from turning brown or yellow.

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 leaves full of holes, spots on bark or leaves, or a network of raised lines on the bark. 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 a severe case may kill part or all of your tree.

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 branches, fruit, and stem. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the stem or branches.

Fasten your plant to a trellis, pole, or tomato cage with string, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to attach each plant loosely. Then the leaves and branches can sway in the breeze and the stem has room to grow wider. Strawberry, cantaloupe, squash, cucumber, and tomato plants need support as they bear fruit. Melons and squash require hammocks made of stretchy fabric, string, old nylons, or a sling 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 even more of them.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near a trellis or arched arbor so they'll climb it and give you both beauty and shade. Viney plants that are native to your area are a good choice for success and attract pollinators. Grape vines are a classic choice, but they take time to mature, so you'll have shade without grapes for a few years. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sunlight you receive, as some like full sun and others don't. As a bonus, many vines put out sweet-smelling flowers with a delightful fragrance you can enjoy.
