HOW WE CAN HELP YOU WITH LIME
Royal Lawns has the equipment, knowledge and products to take care of your liming and soil pH maintenance needs. Maintaining the correct soil pH is crucial to obtain a beautiful and healthy lawn. We use a dust free high magnesium pelletized lime product. The product has a brown color which allows it to visually blend into the lawn without a noticeable white powder residue. Let us handle your lime and pH needs.
Lime "sweetens" your soil. In areas where soil is naturallly "sour" (or acidic), this is extremely important to growing healthly turf. Lime helps improve lawn color and density, helps control thatch, and increases root development.
Our lime application helps keep the chemistry of your soil in balance so that you can have and enjoy, a thicker, greener, healthier lawn.
LIME AFFECTS COLOR, THATCH, AND ROOT DEVELOPMENT
When your soil pH is too low (acidic) it needs lime to bring it back into balance. Soil that is too acidic causes "fertilizer lock-up". This means that fertilizer and important micro-nutrients become locked up in the soil and unavailable to the grass plants.
The results of this lock-up are that the grass becomes thin and yellow, thatch may build up faster, and root growth slows down.
A lawn in this condition is called "unthrifty" because even when properly fertilized, it can't make use of the plant food applied to become thick and stay green.
We suggest annual liming for acidic soils. It helps everything else we do work even better. That's what makes lime such a great lawn value for you.
