In our region of naturally acidic soils, regular lime application is typically required to maintain a healthy soil pH, which is very important for the health and quality of your lawn. It is recommended, to know your current pH level, to conduct a soil test. Assuming it is low, the amount of lime your soil requires will depend on how much the pH needs adjusted to reach an optimum level (6.5 – 7).
For maintenance (once optimum pH is achieved), we recommend one 25kg bag of pelletized lime per 1000 ft2 per year.
Weeds will grow better at a lower (acidic) pH, whereas grass will grow better and be able to outcompete the weeds at a higher pH.
