Fast Acting Lime®

Earth Science Fast Acting Lime® starts working immediately to naturally raise the pH of your soil. When soil pH is too low (typically below 6.2 for most lawns), plants are unable to absorb nutrients efficiently. The result is weak, thin grass with bare spots and weeds.

Helps Reduce Nutrient Run-off and Waste

Earth Science’s patented Nutri-Bond Technology™ bonds with the soil to help keep more product where you put it. That’s better for the environment and helps your lawn or garden get the most out of every application.
