Lawns need more than fertilizer to stay green. To help make fertilizer more effective, your lawn should be tested and balanced for proper pH. Proper pH levels promote favorable growing conditions - encouraging strong, hardy plants that are less susceptible to damage caused by disease. Warm season turf grass is ideally grown in a slightly acidic soil, with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.0. When a soil becomes too acid or alkaline, some nutrients used by the grass plant become unavailable.
Soil pH above 7.0 is considered alkaline and sulfur must be applied to lower the pH which will provide your lawn with many benefits, including:
- Slowing thatch build-up which can choke growth, reduce turf density, and harbor diseases and insects.
- Reducing iron chlorosis (yellowing) by making iron in the soil more available to the grass plant.
- Increasing the effectiveness of fertilizer.
- Reducing the potential for lawn fungus
