EYES ON THE LAWN
Lime and Lawn pH
Applying limestone to regulate soil acidity is a way of balancing the availability of nutrients and increasing the response from fertilizer applications so that you can have a thicker, greener, healthier lawn. Applying Lime in the fall helps release the vital nutrients from the soil that your turf needs before the weather becomes so cold that the turf goes dormant. This means that the nutrients are already available to the plant on a cellular level when it comes out of dormancy in the Spring, meaning the grass will have an advantage in the early stages of regrowth.
We test the soil's pH levels for all customers. An ideal lawn pH is slightly more acidic than neutral (between 6.2 and 6.5) for the turf that grows best in our region. Our recommendations for lime are based on the results of these tests.
