Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds in the grass?

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 gardens you'll be eating from, 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 bees, other pollinators, and pets — and wear a respirator and heavy-duty 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 scorched spot with a quenching drink, then continue to water it regularly. It should perk up within a week. On the other hand, the news for how to treat grass from dog urine isn't as simple. Grass damaged by pets must be removed, neutralized, and replanted in fresh soil with new grass, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

What are some vertical gardening benefits?

As the veggies and plants grow, it's easier to keep your harvest 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 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 vegetable plants healthy?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, 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 your plants, whether you need a shrub fertilizer, tomato 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.

Do patio misters cool the air?

When you need a break from gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Attach awnings and shade sails to the shed or house for shade. 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 lounging in the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

How do I entertain on the patio?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you'd like it to be — it doesn't have to be a barbeque party. If you're focused on firing up the grill, make sure you know how to prep your grill for summer for a delicious outcome. Many people simply relax outdoors and chat away the afternoon. 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.

As summer stretches on, 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 proper tending, irrigation, and shade. Just like we can get sunburned, grass can get scorched and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. We've got guidance to make it through the hotter months.

Keep Your Lawn Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the sod or grass you planted will grow taller than what's ideal. You'll need to maintain it so it'll look manicured 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.

Trees, shrubs, and bushes 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 and size 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 bushes and small trees.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
As outlined in these garden watering tips, much of the upkeep comes down to balancing sunlight and hydration. You'll need both to keep your spirits high and your garden growing with summer flowering. A general rule when watering plants and flowers is to aim the water at the roots. A sprinkler or sprinkler system, garden hose, or drip irrigation system will work well. Contrary to popular belief, the blooms themselves don't need to be watered or even misted. Many flowers droop when but recover once they dry off. Succulents are, of course, the exception to basic watering rules, so look up your specific types of succulents to optimize their care.

In addition to watering them regularly, keep an eye on 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 right nutrients.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, add herbs. They're generally low-maintenance. 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 just 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 regular black dirt. Instead, they grow in a mix of perlite, sand, or rock chips.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near an arched arbor or trellis so they'll climb the structure and give you both shade and beauty. 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 have shade without grapes for a few years. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sunshine you receive, as some like full sun and others don't. As a bonus, many vines put out sweet-smelling flowers, so you can enjoy a delightful fragrance in the cool shade.
