The Better Your Soil The Better Your Grass
Our job at Showcase Lawn Works is to balance your soil for the best conditions possible to grow a thick green lawn. Lime application is the program of applying an agent to reduce soil acidity (raise the pH level) and make soil more favorable for turf grass growth. It is critical in this region to reduce you soil acidity. pH is the degree of acidity of your soil and can range from 0 to 14. We like to see soils right around 7.0 which is neutral. Soils below 7.0 become more acidic due to both human and natural activities. Here in the Southeast region of Pennsylvania rainfall removes calcium and magnesium and replaces them with acidic ions leaving our soil in the acidic zone on the scale.
Reduce Your Soil Acidity For a Healthier Lawn
All soils have a pH reading. pH is the degree of acidity of your soil and can range from 0 to 14. Your Showcase Lawn technician will test your soil pH for FREE to determine the amount of lime and number of applications needed to properly balance your pH to around 7.0 which is neutral. We use granular limestone to reduce the dusty residue that is common with the powdered lime. These granular are held together with a water-soluble substance that dissolves quickly when wet to allow it to absorb deep into your soil.
