Frequently Asked Questions About Gardening

What can I do about weeds?

Weeds are likely poking through in the garden beds, even if you put down landscape fabric liner to keep them at bay. Pull weeds from the root in edible 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 rubber gloves to ensure that it doesn't touch your skin or your lungs.

How do I fix scorched grass?

Simply 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. On the other hand, the news for how to treat grass from dog urine isn't as simple. Grass damaged by pets must be removed, neutralized, and replaced in fresh soil with new grass, or patch and repair grass seed.

When's the best time to water plants?

If you can water during the early morning or in the evening, that's ideal. Watering during the heat of the day means a lot of the moisture will evaporate. This applies to whatever you're growing: grass, veggies, bushes, and plants. Give all the plants a thorough drink, and don't skip it because it's not the best time. The plants still need hydration regardless of the time. Depending on your climate, grass type, and lawn health, you may also want to look into applying an organic lawn fertilizer.

What are some tips to keep my garden healthy?

Once you've planted your flowers or plants, make sure they're 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 whatever you're growing, whether you need a flower fertilizer, fertilizer for veggie plants, fruit tree fertilizer, or a general garden fertilizer blend. Only apply as often as directed 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 gardening in the sun, shelter beneath a patio umbrella or covered gazebo. Add awnings and shade sails to the house or shed to create shady spots. 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 do I make my backyard 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 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, strings of outdoor lights, or even an outdoor rug can breathe new life into a backyard oasis.

The Home Depot Garden Center at Willow Grove

As summer stretches on, your garden and landscaping will weather more heat and sun than earlier in the season. 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 Garden Center in Willow Grove, we've got what you need to make it through the hotter months.

Keep It Tidy
As the weeks tick by, the sod or grass seed you planted will grow taller than what's ideal. It'll need some maintenance to look fresh and manicured. Keep the lawn in check with a push lawn mower and a string trimmer to knock down any tall grass around trees and hardscaping.

Bushes, shrubs, and trees climb toward the sun and lose their shape over time. In the summer, they'll be growing fast, filled with buds and blooms before you know it. Manicure them into a beautiful shape with the best hedge trimmers for your shrubs. It's best to leave major tree maintenance and tree topping to the pros, but you may want to use a pole saw for minor trims and a chainsaw to shape small trees and bushes.

Watch Your Garden Thrive
Water your garden hydrate it between rainstorms and keep the summer flowering going. A general rule when watering plants and flowers is to aim the water at the roots. A sprinkler system, drip irrigation system, or garden hose will do the job. Contrary to popular belief, the blooms themselves don't need to be watered or even misted. Many flowers droop when but recover when they dry off. 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 enjoy a balanced diet with the necessary nutrients.

Grow Your Own Herbs
For savory flavors to accent your homegrown produce, try herb gardening. It's easy to learn how to grow herbs indoors, but you can raise herbs outdoors, too. 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 mixture of perlite, sand, or rock chips.

Trees as Natural Shade
Trees are a natural source of shade, and they can change the look of your yard. Whether you plant a few trees as accents, a few more to bear fruit, or a whole mini-forest, keep in mind this is a long-term commitment. When they're healthy, trees live many decades — and some for hundreds of years. Before you shop, plan so you know how to plant a tree, whether they're deciduous trees, evergreen saplings, or more mature trees.

A house framed by beautiful trees can seem picture-perfect, but research the specific trees you want before planting them. Consider how far the roots extend outward, the full-grown size of the trees you want, and how deep the taproots go. Plant your trees far from underground plumbing, as their strong roots will seek water and wend into piping to get it. A tree with a full canopy of leaves catches wind like a sail, so make sure it's planted a safe distance from your home. If you've planned accordingly, found trees you love, and know the perfect places to put them, get planting. That way, you can enjoy natural shade and the soothing sound of leaves rustling in the breeze sooner rather than later.
