Lawn Lime - Pelletized - February 2023
Yesterday, I posted some photos of a new organic (biosolid) lawn fertilizer from Menards that is a Milorganite replacement that comes in $10 cheaper per bag. I mentioned that I was getting started on my 2023 lawn care program and bought a few products to get started. Before I talk about the first application of lawn food I'm going to put down, I intend to start with a soil amendment.
Over the years, I've applied pelletized lime to our backyard in an attempt to change the makeup of the soil. Why? To help make the lawn a less-hospitable place for Wild Onions to grow. I've fought those jerks every Spring - with both removal and lime application.
Does lime do anything? I'm not sure. But, it isn't expensive, so my not throw the stuff down - if it can help, right?
It seems that I haven't put Lime down since 2021 - skipping last year. Or...I didn't post about it, at least.
Here's what I'm putting down this year in the backyard: three 40 pound bags of Pelletized lime.
I'm going to get out there this week and throw this down before the Spring showers arrive.
