Use lime to create a solid foundation for a healthy, green lawn by establishing and maintaining proper soil pH.
Naturally, the soils found in the Panhandle of Florida are predominantly acidic. This reduces the effectiveness of any fertilizers that are applied to the lawn. We recommend performing a soil test to see if your lawn falls in the acidic category. Once the test results come back, if it shows that your lawn’s pH is below 7.0 (neutral), then it is considered acidic.
When do you need an application of Lime? A pH below 6.0 actually prohibits plant growth nutrients in the soil from reaching the plant. If your lawn has bare spots, excessive weeds, has trouble recovering from stress, or isn’t as green as you would like, you probably need to consider applying Lime to your lawn. Lime can be applied to a lawn any time of year if the soil isn’t frozen.
