Benefits of Liming your Lawn
  • Soil in Westchester is naturally acidic. Applying Lime will help neutralize the acids.
  • It sweetens your soil by raising pH and adding calcium.
  • It increases bacterial activity that builds a healthy system to combat disease, weeds, fungus and reduce a thatch buildup.
  • It enables the grass to absorb more nutrients from the fertilizer we apply.
  • These nutrients become more available when the pH is in the desired range.
  • When nutrients are 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 stronger perennial lawn that can better withstand cold winter weather. If the pH of a lawn is below 5.5, most grass will not grow well no matter how much fertilizer you add. Best turf growth needs 6.2-6.6 pH.
  • Master Lawns recommends and application of 10lbs per 1,000 square feet of a high performance pelletized lime every 2-3 years to keep the pH of the soil at an optimal level. Once it is brought into the desired range.
