Lawns like a balanced soil pH, and lime is one of the best things to add to your lawn. As grass grows, it pulls minerals from the soil and the soil becomes acidic (aka “sour soil”) resulting in excessive weeds, moss and bare spots. By adding lime to soil, it will raise soil pH and help correct acidic soil — creating a proper environment for growth.
