said by jester121:If only it was just pH that mattered for a lawn. The ground gets acidic from rain and pine typically not fertilizer unless you add a truck load or don't know how to use it correctly. It's shocking how bad the lack of knowledge is on fertilizer/lime given how easy it is to get information these days. said by Sennheizer:
Those guys at the college who do soil tests really know what their doing!
Yeah, those pH testers are difficult to wrap your brain around.
$10 at your local garden center. All the lime is doing is raising the pH of your soil (which is probably acidic from the fertilizer).
