Liming is the method of raising the pH to make nutrients more available to lawns. When soils are acidic, little nutrients are available to lawns and health can sometimes decline.
Soil pH is measured on a scale of 0 to 14 with 7 being neutral. Soils below 7 are acidic and above 7 alkaline. Our soils on Delmarva are generally acidic by nature and often require lime to correct soil pH.
The only reliable method to measure soil pH is to submit a soil sample to a professional testing lab for analysis. When the results are returned we will provide you with a copy and make recommendations if lime is needed.
Lime should only be applied in amounts indicated by a soil test and never any more than results require. The Over application of lime can make soils alkaline and cause other soil related problems for lawns.
Applying lime will help create a better soil for your lawn and landscaping.
