Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What can I do about weeds?

Weeds are likely poking through in the garden beds, even if you put down landscape fabric liner 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 flower or vegetable 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 rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

Is my grass dead?

It could be, but it's also likely napping during those soaring temps. Cool-season grass goes dormant in the summer, so it's alive but sleeping. Here's how you can check: If you tug on a grass blade and it pulls right out, it's time to plant new sod or grass seed because the grass is a goner. Water dormant lawns deeply and infrequently. Warm-season grass needs water every few days in the summer. It should stay green if it's healthy.

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 past its peak. Watering during the heat of the day means a lot of the moisture will evaporate. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, veggies, bushes, and grass. Whenever you water, give all the plants a thorough drink. 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.

What are some tips to keep my plants healthy?

Once you've planted your plants or flowers, ensure 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 the plants you're growing, whether you need a flower fertilizer, vegetable fertilizer, or a general 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 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 beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a house or shed, make your own shade by attaching awnings and sun sails. 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 transform a stifling afternoon into a relaxing day. Go back to enjoying the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

How do I make my patio look special for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need a full backyard makeover or to create your own patio conversation sets from scratch to do it. Even a minor backyard refresh can make a big difference. A string of outdoor lights, new outdoor lounge furniture, or even an outdoor rug can breathe new life into an outdoor space.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Pflugerville

As summer stretches on, your garden and landscaping will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the year. That means you'll need to consider how to keep things cool with irrigation and proper tending. Just like we can get sunburned, garden flowers can dry out, grass can get scorched, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At the Garden Center in Pflugerville, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months.

Keep Your Lawn Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the grass seed or sod 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 push lawn mower and a string trimmer to knock down any tall grass around sidewalks, fences, or buildings.

Shrubs, bushes, and trees 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 shape you want 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 small trees and bushes.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
Much of your garden's upkeep comes down to balancing sunshine and hydration. You'll need both to keep your spirits high and your flowers growing with summer flowering. A general rule when watering flowers and plants is to aim the water at the roots. A garden hose, sprinkler, or drip irrigation system can get the job done. You don't need to water or even mist the blossoms themselves. Many flowers wilt when they get 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, monitor your plants' nutrient intake. Add fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll enjoy a balanced diet with the necessary nutrients.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For fresh flavors to accent your homegrown produce, try herb gardening. They're generally low-maintenance and grow easily in pots, both indoors and outdoors. 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 grow them in small decorative pots on a sunny porch, window sill, or even as a beautiful hanging garden on a wall. Herbs also work well in a hydroponic garden, which means they don't grow in soil. Instead, they grow in a mixture of perlite, rock chips, or sand.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near a trellis or arched arbor so they'll climb the structure and give you both beauty and shade. Go with vines that are native to your area to attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. Morning glories, honeysuckle, and clematis 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 with a delightful fragrance you can enjoy as you cool off in the shade.
