Is your lawn weedy, patchy, or having yellow areas? It might be a sign that the pH balance needs correction. Lime treatments regulate the soil’s pH and reduces acidity improving turf vigor, root development and stress tolerance. Lime is applied to lawns usually in October and November as the last treatment in a healthy lawn fertilization program.
The pH balance is affected by factors such as fertilizer, rainfall, plant root activity, minerals, and decomposition of matter.
Classifications for pH Levels:
Acid = pH below 7
Alkaline = pH above 7
Neutral = pH equals 7
