In this brief blog, we’ll look at just 1 reason you can benefit from a Lawn Program: pH balance.
Soil pH is important because it affects available nutrients and activity in the soil. Soil pH measures the soil on a scale of alkaline to acid from 0 to 14. The ideal pH for most grass types is 6.2 to 7.0.
So what does that mean? If your soil is too acidic, you would need one type of treatment to reach your target pH. And if your soil is too alkaline, you would need a completely different treatment type to get your target pH.
Lime and sulfur can be important ingredients in the treatment process, and it takes several applications to get the goal effect. In addition, on one hand, lime is naturally abundant in some soils, while on the other hand, lowering soil pH can prove more difficult.
For these reasons and more, hiring a professional landscaper like Clark’s for your lawn can prove to be a better option.
