Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

How do I treat weeds?

Weeds are likely poking through in the garden beds, even if you put down landscape fabric liner to keep them at bay. Pull out weeds from the root in vegetable or edible flower 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 pollinators and pets — and wear a respirator and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

How do I fix grass damaged by pets?

The solution for how to get burnt grass green again is simple: Fix the burnt spot with a good long drink. 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 replaced in fresh soil with new sod, or patch and repair grass seed.

Should I grow produce vertically?

As the plants and veggies 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, you may miss your harvest under the shadowy leaves. Supporting the plants as they grow upright means your upkeep will be less overwhelming when you harvest your garden veggies.

What are some tips to keep my plants healthy?

Once you've planted your plants or flowers, make sure 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 whatever you're growing, whether you need a shrub fertilizer, fruit tree fertilizer, or a garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as directed on the packaging. More is not better here. 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 gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Add awnings and sun sails to the house or shed to create shady spots. 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 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 make my patio look special for entertaining?

Spending time with friends in gorgeous weather makes the season even more special. But you don't need to do a full backyard 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, strings of outdoor lights, or even an outdoor rug can breathe new life into a backyard.

As the calendar turns to summer, your garden and landscaping will weather more intense heat and UV rays than earlier in the season. You'll want to consider how to keep things cool. Just like we can get sunburned, bulb flowers can dry out and trees can lose their leaves prematurely. Let us help. At the Garden Center in Wade Green, we've got what you need to make the most of summer.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Burnt, or scorched, 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 discover it once you move something sitting out in the yard, like a sprinkler or garden hose. 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 how much sun your lawn gets — or to the existing grass type if you're doing patch repair. For example, if buildings or trees shade your lawn so it gets partial shade or dappled sun, make sure you plant sod that prefers shade.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
Water your garden to keep it alive between rainstorms and keep the summer flowering humming along. A general rule when watering plants and flowers is to aim the water at the roots. A drip irrigation system, sprinkler or sprinkler system, or garden hose can get the job done. The blooms themselves don't need to be watered or even misted. Many flowers wilt and droop when but recover 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 your plants' nutrient intake. Apply fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll absorb the necessary nutrients.

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 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 your plant to a pole, fence, or trellis 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. Strawberries, cantaloupe, squash, cucumbers, and tomatoes need support as they bear fruit. Squash and melons require hammocks made of stretchy fabric, string, old nylons, or a sling to support the weighty produce. 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
Set up vines to climb an arbor or trellis to provide both beauty and shade. Go with native vines to attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. Grape vines are a classic choice, but they take time to mature, so you'll enjoy dappled shade but no grapes for a few years. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sun you receive, as some like full sun and others don't. As a bonus, many vines put out sweet-smelling flowers with a delightful fragrance you can enjoy.
