Lime is extremely important for growing healthy turf. Lime helps to improve lawn color and density, helps to control thatch, and increases root development. Lime can be applied at any time of the year. Normally if only one or two treatments are put down in a season it is best that spring and fall be chosen for the best results.
Lime corrects ph deficiencies in the soil. Magnesium and calcium are the two main components in a good lime product. Our lime application helps to keep the chemistry of your soil in balance so that you can have and enjoy a thicker, greener, healthier lawn. When your soil pH is too low (acidic), it needs lime to bring it back into balance. Soil that is too acidic causes fertilizer lock-up. This means that fertilizer and important micro-nutrients become locked up in the soil and are unavailable to the grass. Lock-up may result in grass becoming thin and yellow, thatch building up faster and root growth slowing down.
When a lawn is consistently limed (2-3 times yearly) it will respond more favorably to all other products and services performed. Liming can be a valuable addition to any lawn care program if quality products are used and applications are done at the proper rate.
Green Side Up can make recommendations on what your particular lawn may need. Also if necessary a soil test can be taken for areas that may not respond to continual fertilizer treatments.
