Lime – Correct Application On Bermuda

Q: My lawn service applied lime on my bermuda lawn both in October and last month. They applied ten pounds per 1000 square feet. Will having a second treatment done so close to the first one harm my lawn?

A: Good news! Ten pounds of lime per 1000 square feet won’t likely hurt your grass. A typical recommendation is forty pounds per 1000 square feet. On the other hand, the apltry amount that was applied probably won’t help anything either. Ask your company for a copy of the soil test they used to calculate the liming rate. If they didn’t do a soil test, find out why not.
