Lime treatment services for lawns in Allentown, Bethlehem, and nearby cities in the Lehigh Valley area of PA.
Adding lime to your lawn balances the pH levels.
Soil pH levels are constantly changing and can prevent your lawn from getting the nutrients it needs over time. This drastically affects the overall health of your lawn. If you are starting to see lawn moss and weeds, insects, yellowing grass, and other signs of lawn disease, these are warning signs that your soil's pH is either too high or too low and could benefit from performing a lime treatment.
Adding lime to your grass will bring the pH back to optimal growing levels. Lime is a type of soil amendment, a substance that helps modify and improve the condition of your soil. Lime acts almost like a "body detox" for your lawn. The lime cleanses a lawn's root system to improve its ability to absorb vital nutrients - nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus - that are key to having a healthy green lawn. That's why lime treatments are an essential part of proper lawn maintenance.
Lime and fertilizer work together to enhance the health of your lawn and help it thrive.
Fertilizer and lime are the perfect power duo for enhancing the health of your lawn. There is a common misconception that lime isn't necessary for a lawn if the soil already has the right pH level, but adding a lime treatment to your fall fertilization service is always recommended.
Lime treatments cannot be performed as a standalone service, but comes as a recommended add-on service when signing up for our fertilization program.
Lime clears a grass' root system to increase nutrient absorption, thereby boosting your lawn's ability to grow back lusher and healthier. When mixed with fertilization, your lawn gets the full benefit of both treatments because the grass will be able to better absorb all the nutrients that were just added in by the fertilization process.
Lime treatments should not be looked at as a substitute for fertilizing but should be considered another core element to improving the health of your lawn.
Fall is the best time of year to apply a lime treatment!
Applying a lime treatment around October or early November will benefit your lawn more than performing one in the spring. Lime takes several months to fully dissolve and change a soil's pH level, but the rain, snow, and freeze-thaw cycles in the fall season helps to breakdown that lime faster. It also gives lime a longer time frame to start working before the growing season.
