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 landscape fabric liner to keep them at bay. Pull out 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 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 bees, other pollinators, and pets — and wear a respirator mask and heavy-duty rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your lungs or skin.

Is brown grass dead?

It could be, but it's also likely just taking a break during those soaring summer temps. Cool-season grass goes dormant in the summer, so it's alive but sleeping. You can check to verify though: If you tug on a grass blade and it pulls right out, it's time to plant new seed or sod because the grass is a goner. Water dormant lawns deeply and infrequently. Warm-season grass needs water every few days in the summer. It should stay green if it's healthy.

Is it good to have a vertical garden?

As the veggies and plants grow, it's easier to keep your harvest healthy. You can see any pests or evidence of wildlife eating your produce and act accordingly. When your fruits and vegetables are ready to pick, you'll see them immediately, 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 they're huge at the end of summer.

How do I fertilize my plants?

After you've planted your plants or flowers, ensure they stay well-fed and hydrated. 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 your plants, whether you need a shrub fertilizer, tomato 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.

Can I lower the humidity in my patio?

When you need a break from working in the yard, shelter under 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 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 enjoying the sun when that water-cooled air is ready.

How do I entertain on the patio?

Backyard entertaining is whatever you find enjoyable — 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. Whichever path you take for bonding with friends, extend the fun into the evening with proper outdoor lighting. For best results, learn how to rid your yard of pesky mosquitos, too.

The Home Depot Garden Center at W Inglewood

As we stretch into the dog days of summer, your landscaping and garden will weather more sun and heat than earlier in the season. You'll want to consider how to keep things cool with irrigation and shade. You might also need ways to beat the heat. Let us help. At The Home Depot Tool Garden Center in W Inglewood, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months.

Lawn Repair and Patching
Burnt, or scorched, grass has a distinctively shaped discoloration that isn't green. It happens when plastic or metal sits on the grass and bakes in the sunlight or a reflective surface shines continuously on your lawn. You'll usually discover it when you move 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 needs neutralizing after urine damage, 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 bare 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 your lawn is shaded by trees and gets partial shade or dappled sun, make sure you plant sod that prefers shade.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
Summertime garden upkeep comes down to balancing sun and hydration, as outlined in these garden watering tips. You'll need both to keep your spirits high and your flowers growing with summer flowering. A general rule when watering plants is to aim the water at the roots. A sprinkler or sprinkler system, garden hose, or drip irrigation system can get the job done. You don't need to water or even mist the blooms themselves. Many flowers droop when they get but recover when they dry off. Succulents are the 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. Use fertilizer as recommended. We've even got fertilizers to match the plants you're growing so they'll get the proper nutrients.

Vertical Vegetable Gardening
Grow produce vertically for a smart use of space. Many vegetable plants are vines and well-suited to climb a trellis or fence, so plant them next to one. 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 stem or branches.

Fasten the plant to a pole or tomato cage with twine, plant ties and wires, garden wire, or fabric strips. Be sure to attach each plant loosely. Then the stem has room to grow wider and the leaves and branches can sway in the breeze. Strawberries, tomatoes, squash, watermelon and cucumbers need support as they bear fruit. Squash and melons require hammocks made of string, old nylons, a sling, or other stretchy fabric to support the weighty produce. All of these plants take up less space on the ground this way, which allows you to fit more plants or have walking room in between.

Vines as Decorative Shade
Plant vines near a trellis or arched arbor so they'll climb the structure and give you both beauty and shade. Go with native vines to attract bees and other pollinators. Grape vines are a classic choice, but they take time to mature, so you'll only be enjoying shade and not fruit for a few years. Remember to match your vine plants to how much sunlight 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 in the shade.
