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 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 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 bees, other pollinators, and pets — and wear a respirator mask and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

Is my grass dead?

It could be, but it's also likely napping during those soaring summer temps. Cool-season grass goes dormant in the summer, so it's alive but sleeping. Here's how you can check: If you can easily pull out a blade of grass with no resistance, it's time to plant new sod or seed because the grass is a goner. Water dormant lawns deeply and infrequently. Warm-season lawns need water every few days in the summer. Those lawns stay green if they're healthy.

Can I grow pumpkins vertically?

As the plants and veggies grow, the harvest will be easier to keep healthy. You can see evidence of wildlife or other pests 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 right away, so you can enjoy them at peak freshness. 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 garden healthy?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, 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 the plants you're growing, whether you need a flower fertilizer, vegetable fertilizer, fruit tree 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.

Do patio misters cool the air?

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

How can I make my patio 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 patio makeover or to create your patio collection from scratch to do it. Even a minor backyard refresh can make a big difference. A new outdoor rug, outdoor lounge furniture, or even a string of outdoor lights can breathe new life into a backyard oasis.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Sherman

As summer stretches on, your garden and landscaping will weather more sun and heat than earlier in the season. That means you'll need to consider how to keep things cool. Just like we can get sunburned, trees can lose their leaves prematurely, perennials can dry out, and grass can get scorched. We've got guidance to make it through the hotter months.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Burnt, or scorched, grass has a distinctively shaped discoloration that isn't green. It happens when a reflective surface shines continuously on your lawn or plastic or metal sits on the grass and bakes in the sunlight. You'll usually discover it once you disturb something sitting out in the yard, like a sprinkler. Car windows or mirrors can also scorch grass when the sun angle is right.

Water scorched grass well and wait a week. You should see the signs of life returning by then. If it's damaged by pet urine or otherwise unsalvageable, you'll need to replace the grass or use patch and repair seed to fix it up.

Whether you're patching a lawn or doing upkeep on your current one, keep in mind which type of grass it is. Match the grass type to how much sun your lawn gets — or to the existing grass type if you're doing patch repair. In other words, if your lawn is shaded by buildings and gets dappled sun or partial shade, make sure you plant sod that prefers shade.

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 or delicate flowers, 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 blooms and keep it from drying out.

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

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, try herb gardening. They grow easily in pots, both indoors and outdoors, and are generally low-maintenance. 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 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 soil. Instead, they grow in a mixture of rock chips, perlite, or sand.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a stunning and natural source of shade, They can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees or a forest, remember this is a long-term commitment. When they're healthy, trees live many decades — and some for hundreds of years. Before you shop, plan so you know how to plant a tree, whether they're deciduous trees, evergreen 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. Consider how deep the taproots go, how far the root ball extends outward, and the full-grown size of the trees you want. Trees will always find the easiest source of water, so be sure to plant them away from your water pipes to avoid roots growing into them. 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.
