Is the soil on your lawn too acid?

A soil that is too acid is detrimental to the assimilation of the nutrients and trace elements that are essential to the health of your lawn and prevents the presence of deep roots and earthworms whose tunnels help to irrigate and aerate the soil. With time, your lawn loses its vigour, thins out and becomes vulnerable to attacks by weeds and insects. Yet, coniferous trees acidify the soil naturally.

The soil’s acidity is measured by its pH level. Depending on the result, applying lime can restore balance through a calcium or magnesium intake, which reduces the soil’s acidity level.
