I need to adjust the soil ph for my lawn. It was just tested and was measured at under 6.0. I know that’s too acidic so I want to bring it up with some lime but I’m wondering how much I need to use?
As explained in our Soil PH Adjustment article, you can raise the local PH with some Liquid Lime. Each gallon of concentrate can effectively raise the PH .5-1.0 per 17,500 sq/ft. Test weekly following the application and if it’s not high enough in one month, apply some more. In most cases, the impact from the application can be seen in 2-3 weeks but wait a month just to be sure. Use a lot of water to apply the Lime. The more water used the faster the impact the treatment will have.
