It is time to discover lime and your lawn. Why does your lawn need lime? Lime is applied to the soil to increase the pH of the lawn. What is pH & why would your lawn need to increase it? pH is a measure of acidity or alkalinity of something. In this case, your soil. A lawn that has soil with an ideal pH has the proper nutrients for a thick green lawn. An ideal pH of soil for a healthy thick green lawn lies between 6.0 -7.0 (slightly acidic is more ideal). How much lime should be applied to your lawn? Only A soil test would be able to determine the amount of lime needed.
A soil test is a series of tests done on your soil to see if everything is OK. The results of this soil test will allow us to make appropriate recommendations that will allow your lawn to become healthy, thick, & green again.
Lawns with a pH level that is out of the normal range may have some of these problems:
- You lawn may be favorable to weeds
- Not be as thick or reach as dark green color as is possible
- May not be as resistant to insect, disease, & drought stress
