Which Lime is best?
Keeping this in view, which liming material would be most effective?
Agricultural lime (calcium carbonate) This is the most commonly used liming material on the North Coast. It consists of limestone crushed to a fine powder and is usually the cheapest material for correcting soil acidity. Good quality lime has 37–40% calcium.
Also, can you put too much lime on your lawn? The main thing you will notice if you have added too much lime to your lawn is the fact it is now turning yellow. If you have added too much lime you may have raised the pH level from a low level that is acidic up to a high level that is alkaline and ideal level for grass is a natural level of around 6-7 pH.
Also asked, which is better lime pellets or powder?
pelletized cost less/slower to raise ph/last longer in ground. Not to mention the application process. Around here it is the reverse, powder lime is cheaper. Powder lime will act faster, but it is harder to distribute, A cyclone spreader can't handle it unless the lime is bone dry, and there is no humidity in the air.
What is the difference between lawn lime and garden lime?
The primary difference lies in the use of magnesium: Dolomite lime contains large amounts of magnesium along with calcium carbonate while calcitic lime only contains calcium carbonate. To keep a proper balance of magnesium in your soil, you need to be careful when selecting the proper lime for your fields.
