pH Balancing & Lime
For best results grass is ideally grown in a slightly acidic soil, and soil acidity is measured by a number called pH.
Soil pH must be in the optimum range to insure maximum nutrient availability. When a soil becomes too acid or alkaline, some nutrients used by your grass become unavailable.
They don’t call us Lawn Doctor for nothing. It may sound crazy but your soil pH matters.
Soil pH balancing naturally brings the pH level in balance with recommended levels for healthy lawns; it also slows thatch build-up, which can choke growth and reduce “turf density” – the number of grass blades per square feet.
Having the appropriate pH also helps increase the effectiveness of fertilizer, by making it more readily available to the grass and the proper pH also reduces the possibility of lawn fungus problems.
Lawn Doctor will check the pH of your lawn and recommend the specific treatment necessary, if any, based on the results.
