Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What can I do about weeds in my flower garden?

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. Be sure to get rid of weeds before the weeds' flowers dry out and and drop their seeds. Pull out weeds from the root in edible flower or vegetable 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 pets and pollinators — and wear a respirator and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

How do I fix grass damaged by pets?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the scorched spot with a good drink. You'll need to rehydrate those roots. It should perk up within a week. The method 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, or patch and repair grass seed.

When's the best time to water plants?

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. This applies to whatever you're growing: grass, trees, vegetables, 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 climate, grass type, and lawn health, you may also want to look into applying a lawn fertilizer.

When do I fertilize my garden?

After you've planted your plants or flowers, 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 the plants you're growing, whether you need a vegetable fertilizer, flower 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 fertilizer won't burn the plants.

Do you carry patio misters?

When you need a break from working in the yard, 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 just too humid. That's when a patio mister or misting fan can help cool the air and transform a stifling afternoon into a relaxing day. Go back to swinging in a hammock when that water-cooled air is ready.

What do you carry for backyard entertaining?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you'd like it to be — it doesn't have to be a garden 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 all afternoon or maybe cook a meal in an outdoor kitchen instead. Whichever path you take for bonding with friends, you can extend the fun into the evening with proper outdoor lighting. For best results, learn how to rid your yard of pesky mosquitos, too.

As we stretch into the dog days of summer, your landscaping and garden will weather more intense heat and UV rays than earlier in the season. You'll need to consider how to keep things cool. You might also need ways to beat the heat. We've got advice to make it through the hotter months with flying colors.

Grow a Healthy Lawn
If you're worried that your lawn has dry and crispy blades of grass, don't panic just yet. It's possible that you've got a cool season grass that's going to go dormant and turn brown in the blazing summer sun. If that's the case, it won't be a patchy brown, but brown all over. See if the roots are alive by tugging on a blade of grass: If it comes right out, the grass is probably dead and will need to be replaced with new grass seed or sod. If the blade of grass doesn't pull right out, it's dormant. That means it's resting but still growing underground. Water dormant grass deeply once or twice each 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 per week. Be careful not to overwater, and allow the lawn to dry out after heavy rains before you get out the sprinkler or garden hose 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 the grass grow taller this time of the year, as cutting your lawn too short isn't healthy for it.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
As outlined in these garden watering tips, much of the upkeep comes down to balancing water and sunshine. You'll need both to keep your spirits high and greenery growing with summer flowering. A general rule when watering flowers is to aim the water at the roots. A drip irrigation system, sprinkler system, or garden hose will work well. The blooms themselves don't need to be watered or even misted. Many flowers wilt and droop when they get wet, but they'll recover just fine when they dry. Succulents are an 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. Apply fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll enjoy a balanced diet with the right nutrients.

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 grow them in small decorative pots on a sunny window sill, porch, or even as a beautiful hanging garden on a wall. 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 sand, perlite, or rock chips.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near a trellis or arbor so they'll climb the structure and give you both beauty and shade. Vine plants that are native to your area are a good choice for success and attract bees and other pollinators. 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 sunlight 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.
