    Lime and Soil Amendments

    Lime, Gypsum, and Soil Amendments

    Lime is a soil ph neutralizer and is as important if not more than fertilizer to a healthy lawn. If your soil is to acidic (like it is here in Connecticut) lime helps to lower the soils ph. When your soil's ph is correct it allows the grass to receive all the nutrients from your fertilizer, saving you money in the long run.
    Gypsum, also known as calcium sulfate, is great for lowering the salt levels of your lawn especially after a winter where ice melters and road salt have been thrown on it. Gypsum also hepls aerate comapacted soil and soils heavy in clay.
    Moss Control is used to control moss that restricts your grass from growing and spreading while strengthening your lawn. Read more about this on our Lawn Chemicals page.
