How To Fix Your Soil pH Easily
One of the biggest questions we get is “how do I raise the pH in my soil” or on the flip side “how do a lower the pH in my soil?” If you have taken a soil test, you have the data telling you where you pH sits. You’ve also been told “get this fixed”, but that has been a sometimes confusing, often gray area. Just getting “lime” or “elemental sulfur” isn’t always easy, until now.
Why Adjust Your pH?
Grass likes to grow in soil with pH between 6 and 7.3.
When outside of these parameters, nutrients in the soil can be “locked up” and therefore are unavailable for the grass roots to utilize them. So if your pH is either too acidic (low) or too alkaline (high) then you may not be getting the maximum benefit from your soil or from your fertilizer that you apply. The good news is, now there is an easy way to move your pH up or down and it comes from our new partners, Jonathan Green.
If you have Low pH soil: Your current reading is below 6.2 (acidic) and you want to raise it, you want this Mag-i-Cal PLUS Soil Food for Acidic Soils with soluble Calcium Carbonate (black bag) to start moving it upwards. Apply now and again next year in spring and fall and then retest the following year and see how you did. 18 lb bag covers 5,000 sq ft.
If you have high pH soil: Your current reading is above 7.3 (alkaline) and you want to lower it, you want the Mag-i-Cal PLUS Soil Food for Alkaline Soils with sulfur and calcium sulfate dihydrate (purple bag) to start moving it downwards. Same as above, apply this now, and then again next year in spring and fall then retest the following year and see how you did. 18 lb bag covers 5,000 sq ft.
