Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What are good ways to get rid of weeds?

Weeds might start peeking 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 edible gardens, 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 bees, other pollinators, and pets — and wear a respirator and heavy rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

How do I fix grass damaged by pets?

Just rehydrate those roots. The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the burnt spot with a quenching drink, then continue to water it regularly. It should perk up over the course of a week. On the other hand, 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 grass seed, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

When's the best time to water plants?

If you can water during the early morning or in the evening, that's ideal. A noon or mid-day watering will evaporate quickly, so come back with an evening watering. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, trees, grass, and vegetables. Whenever you water, give all the plants a thorough drink. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time. Depending on your grass type, climate, and lawn health, you may also want to look into applying a lawn fertilizer.

When do I fertilize my flowers?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, you'll need to make sure they're well-fed and hydrated. Choose a synthetic or an organic 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, tomato fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as suggested on the packaging. 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 gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a house or shed, create shade by attaching sun sails and awnings. However, sometimes shade isn't enough because it's too 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 enjoying the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

How do I create an outdoor oasis 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 furniture 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 outdoor string lights can add character to a patio.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Sierra Vista

As we stretch into the dog days of summer, your landscaping and garden will weather more sun and heat than earlier in the season. That means you'll need to consider how to keep things cool with irrigation and proper tending. Just like we can get sunburned, grass can get scorched and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At The Home Depot Sierra Vista Garden Center, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months with flying colors.

Keep It 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 can look manicured and fresh again. Keep the lawn in check with a riding lawn mower and a string trimmer to knock down any tall grass around trees and hardscaping.

Trees and shrubs 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. Prune them back to a more manicured state with the best hedge trimmers for your shrubs. 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.

Care for Your Trees and Shrubs
When you're making sure your garden is watered, don't forget about the trees, and bushes. 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 shrubs — 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 bushes and trees. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for holes in leaves, spots on bark or leaves, or strange raised scars on the bark. When your leaves look like lace, caterpillars or insects 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 they may ultimately end the life of your trees or bushes.

Vertical Vegetable Gardening
Grow produce vertically for a smart use of space. Many vegetable plants are vines and well-suited to climb a fence or trellis, so plant them next to one and watch them climb. 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 branches or stem.

Fasten the plant to a trellis, pole, or tomato cage with string, 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. Strawberries, tomatoes, squash, pumpkins and cucumbers need support as they bear fruit. Melons and squash require hammocks made of stretchy fabric, string, old nylons, or a sling to support the heavy produce. These plants take up less space on the ground this way, which allows you to fit more plants or have walking room in between.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near a trellis or arbor so they'll climb the structure and give you both beauty and shade. Vines that are native to your area are a good choice for success and attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. Jasmine, wisteria, and ivy are common options for creating a shady and beautiful archway or pathway. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sun 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 in the shade.
