Liming the Lawn – Prupose and When to do it

Q: What is the purpose of liming my lawn and when do I do it?

A: The purpose of liming is to help your grass absorb fertilizer efficiently. Most GA soils are acid. In an acidic environment, plant roots don’t take up nutrients as readily as they should. By adding lime, you neutralize acidity and make the grass healthier. You find out how much lime to add by having a soil test done. Once you get the results, lime can be added at any time. Details at
