Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds in my yard?

Weeds are likely poking through in the garden beds, even if you put down mulch to keep them at bay. Pull out weeds from the root in edible 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 pets and pollinators — and wear a respirator and heavy rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

Is my lawn dead?

It could be, but it's also likely just taking a nap during those soaring temps. Cool-season grass goes dormant in the summer, so it's alive but sleeping. You can check though: If you tug on a grass blade and it pulls right out, it's time to plant new grass seed or sod because the grass is a goner. Water dormant lawns deeply once every week. Warm-season lawns need water every few days in the summer. Those lawns stay green if they're healthy.

Why should I use vertical gardening at home?

As the veggies and plants grow, keeping your harvest healthy is easier. 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, it's easy to miss your first 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.

What are some tips to keep my plants healthy?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, ensure 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 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 plants won't be burned by the fertilizer.

Do patio misters cool the air?

When you need a break from gardening in the sun, shelter under a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Attach awnings and sun sails to the shed or house for shade. However, sometimes shade isn't enough because it's too 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 swinging in a hammock when that water-cooled air is ready.

What do you carry 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, extend the fun into the evening with proper outdoor lighting and a bug-free yard without pesky mosquitos.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Omak

As summer stretches on, 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 with irrigation, proper tending, and shade. Just like we can get sunburned, grass can get scorched and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At the Garden Center in Omak, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months.

Keep Your Garden Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the grass seed or sod you planted will grow taller than what's ideal. You'll need to maintain it so it can look manicured and fresh again. Keep the lawn in check with a lawn mower and a string trimmer to knock down any tall grass around fences, sidewalks, or buildings.

Bushes, 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. Trim wild branches to the size you want 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
Water your garden to keep it alive between rainstorms. A general rule when watering flowers and plants is to aim the water at the roots. A garden hose, drip irrigation system, or sprinkler will do the job. The blooms themselves don't need to be watered or even misted. Many flowers droop when but recover when they dry off. Succulents are the exception to basic watering rules, so look up your specific types of succulents to optimize their care.

In addition to watering, monitor the nutrients your plants are getting. Add fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll get the correct nutrients.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory 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 grow 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 soil. Instead, they grow in a mix of perlite, sand, or rock chips.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines to climb an arched arbor or trellis to provide both beauty and shade. Vine plants that are native to your area are a good choice for success and attract bees and other pollinators. Grape vines are a classic choice, but they take time to mature, so you'll only be enjoying shade and not fruit for a few years. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sunlight 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.
