Lime Treatments for Benton, AR

Soil pH is a measure of a soil's acidity and alkalinity that governs the availability of many soil nutrients, and can directly influence the vigor and quality of your turf. The severity of soil acidity has a major influence on nutrient availability. Proper soil pH is necessary to produce a healthy, high-quality, attractive lawn.

Lime is often applied to Arkansas lawns to help raise the soil pH near neutral, which increases the availability of most plant nutrients. The first step in liming your home lawn is to obtain a soil test before applying any nutrients. A soil test provides key information including soil pH, potassium and phosphorous levels and is a true representative to determine the nutrients supply in the soil.
