Soil pH

Throughout the United States, soil pH levels vary considerably. The Tri-State soils are naturally acidic, but newer or renovated yards where soil is brought in from an outside source tend to be on the alkaline side. Acid formation in the soil is a continuous, natural process; however, this process is hastened through the use of fertilizers.

Lawn grasses cannot tolerate excessive acidity or alkalinity. Lime or iron sulfate is used to correct such problems and is essential in growing and maintaining a healthy lawn.
Why use Limestone or Iron Sulfate?
Lime or iron sulfate is usually applied in the fall, but if needed can be applied anytime of year. If you would like this service, please call for a soil pH analysis to see if your lawn would benefit from a treatment.
