About Soil and pH.

Soil texture and soil pH (= the measure of soil acidity) are two important aspects for a successful garden or lawn project. Soil texture can be improved by mixing in organic matter such as planting mixes, soil conditioner, peat moss, composted manure or compost.

Soil pH affects the ability of soil to release the nutrients in fertilizer. When the pH - measured with numbers between 1 and 10 - is too low/high it cannot efficiently release the nutrients in fertilizer. Most turf and pasture grasses do well in soil with a pH between 6.3 and 6.5. PH can be adjusted by applying lime (to raise it) or sulphur (to lower it). We can determine the exact amount you need by knowing your soil test results and the size of the treatment area.
