Benefits of Liming your Lawn
Soil in Westchester is naturally acidic. A lime application will help neutralize the acids.
It sweetens your soil by raising pH and adding calcium.
It enables the grass to absorb more nutrients from the fertilizer we apply.
These nutrients become more available when the pH is in the neutral range.
It increases bacterial activity that builds a healthy system to combat disease, weeds, fungus and insects.
As the nutrients become less available, the lawn’s color, vigor, and ability to resist (or recover from) heat, drought, or traffic stress will be reduced.
Helps develop a lush perennial lawn that can withstand cold winter weather. If the pH of a lawn is below 5.5, most plants will not grow well no matter how much fertilizer you add.
Master Lawns recommends and application of 20lbs per 1,000 square feet of pelletized lime ever 2-3 years to keep the pH of the soil at an optimal level.
