Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds in my yard?

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 gardens you'll be eating from, and dig up the roots if the weed snapped off without them. Be sure to get rid of weeds 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 pets and pollinators — and wear a respirator and heavy rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical 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 within the next 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 replaced in fresh soil with new grass seed, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

Why should I use vertical gardening at home?

As the veggies and plants 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 are ready to pick, you'll see them immediately, so you can enjoy them at peak freshness. If these same plants grow along the ground, it's easy to miss your harvest under the shadowy leaves. Supporting the plants as they grow upright means your upkeep will be less overwhelming when you harvest your garden veggies.

How do I keep my garden healthy?

Once you've planted your plants or flowers, ensure they're hydrated and well-fed. 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, or a general 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.

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 sun sails and awnings. 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 make a stifling afternoon into a relaxing day. Go back to lounging in the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

How do I make my backyard look special for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous summertime weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need a full backyard makeover or to create your own patio furniture collection 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 a patio.

As we continue deeper into summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more intense heat and UV rays than earlier in the season. That means you'll want to consider how to keep things cool with irrigation and shade. Just like we can get sunburned, trees can lose their leaves prematurely, perennials can dry out, and grass can get scorched. We've got advice to make it through the hotter months.

Grow a Healthy Lawn
If you're concerned that your lawn has dried out blades of grass, don't panic. It's possible that you've got a cool season grass that's going to go dormant and turn brown in the heat of the summer. If that's the case, it won't be a patchy brown, but brown all over. Give a grass blade a gentle tug to check if it's still got live roots: If it comes right out, the grass is likely dead and you'll need to replace it with sod or grass seed. If it doesn't come right out, it's dormant. That means it's resting but still alive underground. Water dormant grass deeply once or twice each week, but avoid fertilizer.

For warm-season grass that stays green in the summer, water a bit every few days and deeply once a week. The amount of water should add up to about an inch each week. Be careful not to overwater, and allow the lawn to dry out after heavy rains before you get out the sprinkler or garden hose again. If it's especially hot out, water when the top two inches of soil is dry to the touch. It's ok to let it grow a little taller this time of the year, as cutting your lawn too short isn't healthy for it.

Care for Your Shrubs and Trees
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the trees and shrubs. 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 trees and bushes — just be sure to aim the water at the roots. It'll help prolong the greenery and keep it from drying out.

Also, check for damaged areas on the trees, bushes, and shrubs. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for spots on bark or leaves, leaves full of holes, or strange raised scars on the bark. When your leaves look like lace, insects or caterpillars are eating them. Spots may indicate a number of 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 all or part of your shrub or tree.

Vertical Edible Gardening
Grow produce vertically to conserve space. Many vegetable plants are vines and well-suited to climb a trellis or fence, so plant them next to one. Support the stem itself, as well as the junctions right below where the branches grow off the stem. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the stem or branches.

Fasten the plant to a pole or tomato cage with twine, 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 branches and leaves can sway in the breeze. Strawberry, canteloupe, 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 weighty produce. 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.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a natural source of shade, and they can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees or a forest, remember this is a long-term commitment. Trees live many decades when they're healthy. Before you shop, look into how to plant a tree, whether they're evergreens, deciduous tree saplings, or more mature trees.

A backyard woodland can be the stuff of dreams, but research the trees you're planting beforehand. Consider how far the root ball extends outward, the full-grown size of the trees you want, and how deep the taproots go. Plant your trees far from underground plumbing, as their strong roots will seek water and curl into piping to get it. Leave a safe distance from your home, as large trees can catch the wind if not properly pruned. 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.
