Nearly every homeowner desires an attractive lawn because this is one feature which most enhances the appearance of the entire property. Healthy, attractive lawns are not an accident, but are the result of a regularly and carefully executed maintenance program. This applies to the soil as well as to the turf grass itself. Why Does My Lawn Need Lime? Turf grasses will not grow well in highly acid soils, and since most soils in Ohio are acid by nature, well established lawns will require applications of lime. Acid conditions of soils can be brought about by the leaching out of calcium and magnesium, the alkaline constituents, from the soil; yearly applications of nitrogenous fertilizers; the use of organic materials, such as compost or peat moss, used to condition the soil or as a top dressing; and the washing of sulfur from the air by rain into the soil. It is recommended that lime be applied in the fall to enable the material to break down over the winter for the next season's growth. However, lime can be applied any time. When Shall I Have It Applied?It is recommended that lime be applied in the fall to enable the material to break down over the winter for the next season's growth. However, lime can be applied any time. Is It Safe?Yes, Lime is safe to use! The common forms of lime applied to turf, calcitic lime and dolomitic lime, are non-toxic to pets, humans, or grass and will not cause pollution problems.
