I fertilized 3 weeks ago and limed 4 days ago. Last year fertilizer greened up the grass a ton. This year the fertilizer didn't do much but WOW after the lime the yard looks great! 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).
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.
