Frequently Asked Questions
Pelletized lime is a soil amendment that is made from finely ground limestone. The limestone is compacted into small, easy-to-spread pellets, making it more manageable and less messy to apply than traditional powdered lime.
Pelletized lime is used to correct acidic soil conditions. Most grasses prefer a slightly acidic to neutral soil pH, in the range of 6.0 to 7.0. If the soil becomes too acidic, it can prevent the grass from absorbing essential nutrients. Pelletized lime raises the pH of the soil, reducing its acidity and making it more conducive for grass growth.
Start by conducting a soil test to measure your lawn’s pH. If it's too acidic, calculate how much lime you need based on your soil test results and the guidelines provided on the pelletized lime packaging. Apply the lime using a multi-purpose seed spreader and ensure it's spread evenly across your lawn. Water the lawn after application to help the lime absorb into the soil.
Yes, applying too much lime at once can create overly alkaline conditions which can be harmful to your lawn. If you need to make a large pH adjustment, it's usually best to do it gradually, over a period of several years.
