Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What are good ways to get rid of weeds?

Weeds are likely poking through in the garden beds, even if you put down mulch to keep them at bay. Be sure to get rid of weeds before they go to seed. Pull out weeds from the root in vegetable or edible flower 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 mask and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that the chemical doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

How do I fix sunburnt grass?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the burnt spot with a good drink. Simply rehydrate those roots. It should perk up over the course of 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 sod, seed, or patch and repair grass seed.

Is it good to have a vertical garden?

As the veggies and plants grow, keeping your harvest healthy is easier. 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, it's easy to miss your harvest among 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 stay 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 flower fertilizer, vegetable fertilizer, fruit tree 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 gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. If you have sturdy structures like a shed or house, create shade by attaching sun sails and awnings. However, sometimes shade isn't enough because it's extremely humid out. 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.

How do 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 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. Outdoor string lights, new outdoor lounge furniture, or even an outdoor rug can bring character to a patio.

The Home Depot Garden Center at W Colonial

As we continue deeper into summer, your landscaping and garden will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the year. That means you'll want to consider how to keep things cool with proper tending, irrigation, and shade. You might also need ways to beat the heat. Let us help. At the Garden Center in W Colonial, 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 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 often discover it once you disturb something that's been sitting out in the yard, like a trash can. Car windows or mirrors can also scorch grass when the sun angle is just right.

Water scorched 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 doing upkeep on your current lawn or patching the bald spots, keep in mind which type of grass it is. Match the grass type 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 trees shade your lawn so it gets partial shade or dappled sun, make sure you plant grass that's not meant for full sun.

Care for Your Shrubs and Trees
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, but they can still get parched and dry in the summer heat. It's not hard to learn how to water shrubs and trees — just make sure you aim the water at the roots. It'll help prolong the greenery and keep it from turning brown or yellow.

Also, check for damaged areas on the bushes, trees, and shrubs. Pests can wreak havoc on your greenery if you don't catch them in time. Look for leaves full of holes, strange raised scars on the bark, or spots on leaves or bark. When your leaves look like lace, something is 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 tree.

Vertical Edible Gardening
If you like to grow your own food, take it vertical and consider growing organically. Many vegetable plants are vines and well-suited to climb a trellis or fence, so plant them next to one. The key to success is supporting the branches, fruit, and stem. This is so the weight of the plant doesn't snap the branches or stem.

Fasten the plant to a trellis, fence, or pole with string, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to attach each plant loosely. Then the leaves and branches can sway in the breeze and the stem has room to grow wider. Strawberry, pumpkin, squash, cucumber, and tomato plants need support as they bear fruit. Melons and squash require hammocks made of stretchy fabric, string, old nylons, or a sling to support the weighty produce. All of these plants take up less space on the ground when grown vertically, which allows you to have walking room in between plants or fit more of them.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines to climb a trellis or arched arbor to provide both shade and beauty. Go with vines that are native to your area to attract bees and other pollinators. Grape vines are a classic choice, but they take time to mature, so you'll have shade without grapes for a few years. 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, so you can enjoy a delightful fragrance in the cool shade.
