Test and Improve Your Soil’s pH Levels

The pH level of your lawn determines how well the grass will grow. Unfortunately, most people aren’t aware they should be checking their lawn’s pH levels regularly. pH levels test how acidic or alkaline the soil is, and this is determined by taking a sample of soil about two or three inches into the ground. Ideally, soil has a neutral pH, which is between 6.2 and 7. And when the soil is either too acidic or too alkaline, it can cause soil inefficiencies, which leads to an unhealthy lawn.

If your soil is too acidic, which is anywhere below 6.0 pH, important nutrients like phosphorus are less available. Other nutrients like aluminum and manganese can become toxic. There is also beneficial soil bacteria within the soil, and high acidity levels cause damage or kill the good bacteria. To treat acidic soil, Grass Life can apply a lime-based fertilizer.

If the soil is too alkaline, which is a pH level that is above 7.0, it can prevent grass from properly absorbing nutrients and keeps them from working efficiently, such as iron, manganese, copper, zinc, and phosphorus. To treat alkaline soil, or to lower the pH level, add sulfur, calcium, iron, aluminum, or gypsum.

At Grass Life, our lawn care experts will complete a detailed test of your soil’s pH level if needed in order to determine the best course of action. When we know what to treat the soil with, it’s also about implementing a fertilization program that is timed correctly and is applying the correct amount of fertilizer.

Treating the pH level of soil can be overwhelming, especially when you’re dealing with the science of soil. For a healthy and lush green lawn, trust in the experts at Grass Life. We believe that a strong lawn care program can improve the soil’s nutrients levels, giving grass and other foliage what it needs to truly thrive.
