One of our most popular services we perform is liming. Liming is done to help balance your lawn's pH. Soils are described using pH values which can be classified as acid, alkaline, or neutral. We take a soil test at the beginning of the season or whenever a new customer may come to us. We take a total of six samples of soil across the lawn and mix them together. We then send the sample out to be analyzed by a lab. Testing will give us the pH results and the pH for the buffer. The buffer pH will tell us how much limestone needs to be applied to the lawn. There are many great benefits of liming. If the pH of the lawn is not balanced fertilizer and weed control products may be unavailable to grass plants. In order to have a healthy lawn your pH must be balanced. If your soil is acidic then lime will be needed in order to restore the pH balance. Lime also adds calcium and magnesium to your soil.
