How knowing your soil’s pH level can enhance your lawn

by on November 11, 2011

Most homeowners are not aware that the quality of their lawn can be dramatically increased if they would just test their soil’s pH level. In order to grow a successful lawn, it is important to periodically test your soil’s pH level to ensure the acidity level is where it should be so growth and color is encouraged.
Lawn care experts say that being aware of your soil’s pH level is a must if you want a picturesque lawn. The acidity of the soil has a huge impact on how well and how rapidly your lawn grows. If your soil isn’t acidic enough or is too acidic, your lawn becomes susceptible to disease and insect infestations that could cause serious damage to your turf. Furthermore, your lawn will grow at a much slower rate and will appear less colorful and vibrant.
Different lawn types may require differing pH levels, so it’s important to consult with your local lawn care company to figure out exactly where your soil should be. However, most lawn care professionals recommend keeping your soil at a level between 6.5 and 7.
Lawn care specialists also recommend testing your soil every three years. If you are not sure how to test your soil, your local lawn care company will be happy to help you with this process.
