Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds?

Weeds are likely poking through in the garden beds, even if you put down mulch or a landscape fabric liner to keep them at bay. Pull weeds from the root in vegetable or edible flower gardens, and dig up the roots if the weed snapped off without them. Be sure to get them before the weeds' flowers dry out and and drop their seeds. 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?

Just rehydrate those roots. The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is easy: Fix the scorched spot with a good long 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 straightforward. Grass damaged by pets must be removed, neutralized, and replanted in fresh soil with new sod, seed, or patch and repair grass seed.

What are some vertical gardening benefits?

As the plants and veggies grow, the harvest will be easier to keep 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 mature and 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 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?

After 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 whatever you're growing, whether you need a flower fertilizer, vegetable fertilizer, shrub 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.

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, create 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 can I create an outdoor oasis for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous summertime weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need a full patio makeover or to create your own patio conversation sets from scratch to do it. Even a minor backyard refresh can make a big difference. New outdoor lounge furniture, outdoor rugs, or even a string of outdoor lights can add character to a backyard oasis.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Rockhill

As we stretch into the dog days of summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the season. That means you'll want to consider how to keep things cool. Just like we can get sunburned, trees can lose their leaves prematurely, grass can get scorched, and garden flowers can dry out. We've got advice to help you, your garden, and your lawn make it through the hotter months.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Scorched, or burnt, grass has a distinctively shaped discoloration that isn't green. It happens when metal or plastic sits on the grass and bakes in the sunlight or a reflective surface shines continuously on your lawn. You'll find it once you move something that's been sitting out in the yard, like a trash can or garden hose. Car mirrors or windows can also scorch grass when the sun angle is just right.

Water burnt grass well and wait a week. You should see the signs of life returning by then. If it needs neutralizing after urine damage, you'll need to use patch and repair seed to fix it up or replace the grass.

Whether you're doing upkeep on your current lawn or patching the bare spots, keep in mind which type of grass it is. Match the kind of grass to your lawn if you're doing patch repair. When planting new grass, choose a variety that works with the amount of sun your lawn gets. In other words, if your lawn gets full sun, make sure you plant grass that thrives in the sunlight instead of a type that likes dappled sun or shade.

Care for Your Shrubs and Trees
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the shrubs, bushes, and trees. They may need less watering than delicate flowers, but they can still get parched and dry in the summer heat. It's not hard to learn how to water trees — just be sure to 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.

Also, check for damaged areas on the trees and shrubs. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for holes in leaves, strange raised scars on tree bark, or spots on bark or leaves. When your leaves look like lace, insects or caterpillars are eating them. Spots may indicate several issues ranging from fungus to bugs. 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 bushes or trees.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For fresh flavors to accent your homegrown produce, add herbs. They grow easily in pots, both indoors and outdoors, and are usually low-maintenance. 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 window sill, porch, 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 rock chips, perlite, or sand.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a natural source of shade, 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, keep in mind this is a long-term commitment. Trees live many decades when they're healthy. Before you shop, read up on how to plant a tree, whether they're evergreens, deciduous tree saplings, or more mature trees.

A house framed by beautiful trees can seem picture-perfect, but research the specific trees you want before planting them. Think about the full-grown size of the trees you want, how far the root ball extends outward and how deep the taproots go. Trees will always find the easiest source of water, so be sure to plant them away from the water lines so they won't be damaged by moisture-seeking roots. 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 best places to put them, get planting. That way, you can enjoy the leaves rustling in the breeze and dappled shade sooner rather than later.
