Soil Amendement Service

At ExperiGreen we offer a comprehensive list of lawn services. We also offer Perimeter Pest Control and Mosquito Control services. In some markets we are proud to offer Professional Tree & Shrub Care Service as well. A key beneficial service that we often recommend is a soil amendment. In most cases, this would be an application of lime, but sulfur may be used in areas of high pH or alkaline soils. Soil amendments work to modify the soil pH slightly, which improves nutrient uptake. If soils are to acidic or alkaline it, they tend to “tie up” the nutrients applied to the lawn. Your lawn is then better able to utilize the nutrients from our professional fertilizers.

Why do you need a soil amendment service?

Soil pH is a key factor in plants like grass, trees and shrubs ability to grow well and thrive. It is a measure of a soil’s relative acidity or alkalinity. Soils that have too high of a pH (alkaline soils) or too low of a pH (acidic soils) impede a plants ability to take up and utilize nutrients. Lime or sulfur are common soil amendments applied to lawns and landscape areas to modify the soil pH.

Benefits Of Our Soil Amendment Services

Most types of grass grow best when they have a pH between 6 and 7. If your pH is below 5.5, lawn growth gets stunted and the health of the lawn can be comprised. Adding lime to your turf reduces the acidity of the lawn.

What are the benefits?

Reducing the acidity of your lawn allows the grass to absorb nutrients far more readily. This has an almost immediate effect on the health of the lawn. A proper soil acidity has long term positive effects on your lawn.

Our ExperiGreen soil amendment service is meant to modify the pH of your soil so your grass plants can better take up and utilize the nutrients applied to the lawn. A lime treatment for your lawn benefits it in several ways: If your soil pH is too low or acidic, your grass won’t grow and thrive as well as it should. Lime will slightly lower the soil pH, which will allow your grass plants to better utilize fertilizer nutrients. This will increase the overall health and appearance of your lawn.

The pH of lime is a bit of a challenge to determine. There are different forms of lime, such as hydrated lime or dolomitic lime to name just two. Suffice it to say lime is fairly high on the pH scale and works to reduce the relative acidity of low pH soils. Most plants grow and thrive in soils that are close to neutral in pH, so applying lime to acidic soils is recommended.

Is lime good for acidic soil?
