Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What can I do about weeds?

Weeds might start peeking through in the garden beds, even if you put down mulch 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 pets and pollinators — and wear a respirator mask and heavy rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

How do I fix burned grass?

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 by the following week. The method 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, or patch and repair grass seed.

When should I water my garden?

Ideally, water early in the morning. The next best time is in the evening, when the sun is past its peak. A noon or mid-day watering will evaporate quickly, so come back with an evening watering if possible. This applies to whatever you're growing: grass, veggies, bushes, and plants. Whenever you water, give all the plants a thorough drink. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time on the clock. 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?

After 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 the plants you're growing, whether you need a flower fertilizer, veggie fertilizer, shrub fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as recommended 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 beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Attach awnings and sun sails to the house or shed 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 swinging in a hammock when that water-cooled air is ready.

How can I create an outdoor oasis for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous summertime weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need to do 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. New outdoor lounge furniture, outdoor rugs, or even outdoor string lights can breathe new life into a backyard oasis.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Twin Falls

As summer stretches on, your garden and landscaping will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the year. That means you'll want to consider how to keep things cool. You might also need ways to beat the heat. Let us help. At The Home Depot Twin Falls Garden Center, we've got what you need to make the most of summer.

Grow a Healthy Lawn
If you're concerned that your lawn has straw-like blades of grass, don't worry. It's possible that you've got a cool season grass that goes dormant and turns brown in the summertime heat. If that's the case, it'll be brown, but not in patches. Gently tug out a blade of grass to check the roots: If it comes right out, the grass is likely dead and will need to be replaced with new grass seed or sod. If it doesn't come right out, it's dormant. That means it's resting but still growing beneath the surface. Dormant grass should be watered deeply once or twice a week but don't fertilize it.

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. Make sure not to overwater, and let the lawn dry out after heavy rains before you get out the hose or sprinkler 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 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 shrubs, 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 bushes — just make sure you 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 strange raised scars on tree bark, leaves full of holes, or spots on bark or leaves. When your leaves look like lace, something is 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 part or all of your shrub or 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 usually 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 grow 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 mixture of sand, perlite, or rock chips.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are the ultimate natural source of shade, They can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees or a forest, keep in mind this is a long-term commitment. Trees live many decades when they're healthy. Before you shop, read up on 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 roots extend outward, the full-grown size of the trees, 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.
