Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How can I get rid of weeds?

Weeds might start peeking through in the garden beds, even if you put down landscape fabric liner to keep them at bay. Pull weeds from the root in edible flower or vegetable gardens, and dig up the roots if the weed snapped off without them. Be sure to get them before they go to seed. 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 rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

How do I fix sunburnt grass?

You'll need to rehydrate those roots. The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is easy: Fix the scorched spot with a good drink, then continue to water it regularly. It should perk up over the course of a 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 replanted in fresh soil with new grass, sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

When's the best time to water my yard?

If you can water during the early morning or in the evening, that's ideal. Watering during the heat of the day means a lot of the moisture will evaporate. This applies to whatever you're growing: plants, bushes, grass, and veggies. Whenever you water, give all the plants a thorough drink, and don't skip it just because it's not the best time. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time. Depending on your lawn's health, grass type, and climate, you may also want to look into applying an organic lawn fertilizer.

What are some tips to keep my garden healthy?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, ensure 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 the plants you're growing, 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 fertilizer won't burn the plants.

Can I lower the humidity in my patio?

When you need a break from working in the yard, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Add awnings and shade sails to the house or shed for shady spots. However, sometimes shade isn't enough because it's just too humid out. 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 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 weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need to do 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. A new outdoor rug, outdoor lounge furniture, or even a string of outdoor lights can add character to a backyard.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Tigard

As we continue deeper into summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more sun and heat than earlier in the season. You'll want to consider how to keep things cool with proper tending and irrigation. Just like we can get sunburned, annuals and grass can dry out, and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At your Garden Center in Tigard, we've got what you need to make the most of summer.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Scorched, or burnt, grass has a distinctively shaped discoloration that looks yellow. 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 find it when you move something sitting out in the yard, like a garden hose or trash can. Car mirrors or windows can also scorch grass when the sun angle is right.

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

Whether you're patching a lawn or doing upkeep on your current one, 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 is shaded by buildings and gets partial shade or dappled sun, make sure you plant grass that's not meant for full sun.

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 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 aim the water at the roots. It'll help prolong the greenery and flowers 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 leaves full of holes, spots on leaves or bark, or strange raised scars on tree bark. When your leaves look like lace, caterpillars or insects are eating them. Spots may indicate a number of 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 all or part of your shrub or tree.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, add herbs. They're generally low-maintenance and grow easily in pots, both indoors and outdoors. 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 keep them in small decorative pots on a sunny porch, window sill, 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 perlite, sand, or rock chips.

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 small forest, remember this is a long-term commitment. Trees live many decades when they're healthy. Before you shop, plan so you know how to plant a tree, whether they're evergreens, deciduous tree saplings, or more mature trees.

Although trees framing a house may look picturesque, you should research the specifics of those trees before you plant them. Consider how far the root ball extends outward, the full-grown size of the trees, and how deep the taproots go. Plant your trees far from water pipes, as their strong roots will seek water and wend into piping to get it. 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 ideal places to put them, get planting. That way, you can enjoy the leaves rustling in the breeze and dappled shade sooner rather than later.
