Lawn Lime Application Services
Homeowners mow, weed, and fertilize their lawn for lush grass, but what else can be done to ensure the perfect turf? The pH level of your soil can greatly enhance the health of your lawn, plants, and flowers. Lawn lime applications ensure that your soil’s pH level is balanced.
Our Lawn Lime Application Process
The lawn specialists at Moscarino Landscaping will administer a pH lawn test and determine if it is too low (acidic) or too high (alkaline). For most plants and turf, ideal soil pH levels are in the 6.5 to 7.0 range.
An effective method to correct a pH problem in your soil is a lawn lime application. A lime fertilizer provides calcium to assist in root development and strengthens plant cell walls. It slows the decomposition process and aids in the development of nitrogen fixing bacteria.
Lime is typically added to soil surrounding plants when the soil is too acidic or the calcium level is low.
Other Options for Correcting pH Imbalance in Your Lawn
Other options for correcting a pH imbalance include the application of gypsum (calcium sulfate) when the soil is alkaline and lacking calcium.
Though lime is typically applied in the fall, it may also be applied in the spring. It is not necessary to have a lime application every year unless your soil is highly acidic.
