When adding lime to bare soil, such as a vegetable garden or new lawn, till it into the top 6 inches of soil. Use pelletized lime and a fertilizer spreader to add it to an established garden bed or a lawn. Water the garden or lawn well to move the lime into the soil.
How to Add Lime to Soil?
Adding lime to soil is a great way to help improve its quality and make it more fertile. Lime helps to raise soil pH levels, which can increase the availability of nutrients for plants. It also helps to reduce the acidity of soils, making them more suitable for growing a wider range of plants.
Before you add lime to your soil, it’s important to know the pH of your soil. You can determine the pH level of your soil with a soil test kit. Different plants prefer different pH levels, so it’s important to know the pH of your soil in order to select the right lime product.
Once you’ve determined the pH of your soil, you can decide how much lime to add to your soil. Generally, you should aim for a pH level of 6.5-7.0 for most plants. The amount of lime you will need will depend on the pH of your soil and the type of soil you have.
Once you’ve selected the right type of lime and determined the amount you need, you can begin adding it to your soil. Lime is most effective when it is added directly to the soil. You can do this by mixing the lime into the top 6-8 inches
