pH Correction

Most types of lawn grass grows best in slightly acidic soil with a pH between 6 and 7. If your soil pH is below 5.5, your lawn won’t grow well.  Our liming applications can help correct this with annual treatments.

Lime A Real Value
Lime “sweetens” your soil. In areas where soil is naturally “sour” or acid, lime is extremely important to growing healthy turf.  Lime improves lawn color and density, helps control thatch and increases root development.

Our lime application helps keep the chemistry of your soil in balance so that you can enjoy a thicker, green and healthier lawn.

LIME AFFECTS COLOR, THATCH AND ROOT DEVELOPMENT

When your soil pH is too low or acid, it needs lime to bring it back into balance. Soil that is too acid causes “fertilizer lock-up.” This means that fertilizer and important micro-nutrients become locked up in the soil and unavailable to grass plants.

The result of this lock up is that grass becomes thin and yellow, thatch may build up faster and root growth slows down.

A lawn in this condition is called “un-thrifty” because even when properly fertilized, it can’t make use of all the plant food applied to become thick and stay as green as it could.

We suggest annual liming for acid soils. It helps everything we do work even better. That’s what makes lime such a great lawn value for you.

Sign up this fall for a lime application! We’ll come and apply an application of lime that will aid your lawn in preparing for winter. We also offer spring lime applications for folks who really want to improve that pH problem. We’ll test your soil and monitor it when requested each year.
