Lime and fertilizer are two lawn care treatments that help give your lawn a lush, bright green look! But did you know that they're the perfect service duo for fall lawn maintenance?
Both treatments provide nutrients that boost the overall health and appearance of your grass, so there's no reason why lime and fertilizer can't be used together!

Why should you fertilize your lawn after a lime application?
Pennsylvania grasses thrive in more alkaline soil as opposed to acidic. These pH levels will fluctuate and affect the way your lawn's root system can properly absorb nutrients. If the soil acidity is too high, your grass won't be able to benefit from any kind of fertilization process.
Lime applications are performed to restore this pH balance. When the alkaline levels in the soil are improved, more nutrients become available to your grass, and the absorption rate is boosted. A fertilizer treatment that is done shortly after you lime your lawn will allow your grass to receive most of the nutrients just added to your soil!
Why should lime and fertilizer be applied in the fall?
Even though the growing season may be over, your lawn needs to stay protected and nourished throughout the cooler months until next spring. Lawns can especially benefit from a fall lime treatment because the rain and snow help break it down faster.
Applying a lime and winterizer treatment in the fall helps your lawn store enough nutrients to survive the winter so it can grow back thicker and stronger by the time it's spring!
Our six-step fertilization program includes fall lime and fertilizer treatments!
Maintaining a beautiful green requires extensive lawn care services. However, regularly fertilizing your grass is one of the most important factors in having a healthy lawn.
At Green Turf Care, we developed a six-step fertilization program that nurtures the health and appearance of your grass all year long! Our organic-based fertilizer is applied at certain points of the year, so your lawn always receives enough nutrients to thrive and be fortified against weeds and lawn disease.
Lime and winterizer applications are steps 5 and 6 in our program. In step five, we apply a heavy fertilizer treatment with our lime to help your grass develop a strong root system. Then in step six, we add a final winterizer to the soil. Winterizers have a high level of nitrogen, which is an essential nutrient for further grass root development. These steps protect your lawn during winter dormancy to help it appear greener in the spring!
