Soil Doctors Pelletized Lawn Lime
100% Natural Fast-Acting and Easy to Spread!
The Soil Doctor Says:
Healthy lawns need proper soil pH to thrive- usually between 6.0 and 7.0. The Soil Doctor prescribes limestone as the solution for acid soils. Limestone is a natural mineral which neutralizes acid and toxic elements, improves soil structure, promotes healthy bacteria, and enhances nutrient availability. Limestone also supplies calcium and magnesium- two important nutrients missing from many fertilizers.
Limestone must be finely ground to be effective, but it is dusty and difficult to apply. Pelletized lawnlime is finely ground limestone formed into pellets with an organic binder, for easy application. These pellets dissolve when exposed to moisture, so lawnlime goes to work right away!
Healthy Lawn & the Soil Doctor recommends a pH test of your soil. Apply according to the soil test recommendations or the chart on the Soil Doctor Bag. If no soil test is available, a good rule of thumb is 50-80 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft. for initial applications and 20-40 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. for annual pH maintenance.
Apply with a rotary broadcast or drop spreader using manufacturer's recommendations.
Limestone is safe and effective!
