Can I apply lime and fertilizer at the same time?
You can apply 40 pounds of lime per 1000 square feet at any time. A soil test might determine that you need more – but this is a moderate amount, which is certainly better than nothing. You can put down lime and fertilizer at the same time.

Can I apply lime and grass seed at the same time?
Yes. For best results, do a soil test first to determine how much lime you'll need, if any.

How do I know what my soil's pH level is?
A soil test is the easiest and most efficient method to determine your soil's pH. We recommend sending a soil sample to a certified lab for the most accurate results. You can purchase soil tests from Natural Alternative®, ask your county extension agent if they test soil, or work with your independent lawn and garden store.

What does lime do to the soil?
Lime helps plants and lawns flourish by raising soil pH levels. A low soil pH, or acidic soil, is often the underlying problem when it comes to many common lawn and garden problems. But even with a healthy lawn or garden, liming can improve soil quality, helping plants and grass to flourish.

What does pH stand for?
The term "pH" came from a Danish biochemist, Soren Peter Lauritz Sorensen, in 1909. It is an abbreviation for "power of hydrogen". pH is a scale that goes from 1 to 14 and is based on the hydrogen ion.

What is a "normal" pH?
For most soils, 7 is considered to be neutral and ideal for most of the nutrients to be available to the plant. Levels below 7 are considered to be acidic (sour) and require lime to raise the pH. Levels above 7 are considered to be alkaline (sweet) and require sulfur to lower the pH.

Why should I be concerned about my soil's pH?
Your soil's pH is important, because it influences the availability of many nutrients to the plant. If the pH is low, the plant cannot absorb nitrogen, phosphorus and potash. Roots won't fully develop; photosynthesis stalls; and plants will turn yellow and become susceptible to diseases and insect attacks. For your lawn or plants to fully take advantage of the fertilizer or plant food you apply, the pH must be balanced; otherwise, you are potentially throwing your money away.
