Lawn Soil Testing & Amendments

Maybe you think you’ve checked all the lawn care boxes, but your grass still doesn’t look great. 

Fertilizer? Check

Weed control? Check. 

Standing on the porch swearing? Check. 

The problem could be deeper. It might be your soil. 

A balanced lawn soil pH is key to a healthy, thriving lawn. If your pH is off, your grass won’t get the nutrients it needs, no matter how much you fertilize. Or swear.

Time for a Test

No need to call in sick, the test isn’t for you. It’s lawn soil testing. 

Lawn care specialists will insert a meter into your soil to check the pH level. You might need lawn soil amendments. 

If your lawn soil pH is too low, it’s time for lime, a soil amendment made from ground limestone rock, making your soil less acidic and more alkaline.

Or, if your lawn soil pH is too high, your lawn might need gypsum, a mineral that contains hydrated calcium sulfate. 

The goal? The pH midpoint — neither acidic nor alkaline. That’s where your grass really thrives.

Finding Your Perfect Balance

Whether it’s time for lime or gypsum, we call both of these treatments “balancer,” because they both work to balance the pH level of your lawn. Lawn soil testing services will get to the bottom of it.

Here’s a cool fact: Lawn soil pH varies from city to city, and even from lawn to lawn in the same neighborhood.

Lawn soil in Eau Claire, WI tends to be acidic, while the soil in Minneapolis often leans toward alkaline. 

Wherever you live, once your lawn is balanced with the right pH, your soil can actually use the nutrients in your fertilizer, and flourish.
