How can I lower my soil pH (7.5) for lawn grass?

Gardens & Landscapes October 17, 2011 Print Friendly and PDF

There is no good way to lower the pH quickly. Use an acid forming fertilizer to lower pH over time. With some grasses it may not be necessary to lower a pH of 7.5 to have a healthy lawn.  There are exceptions to every rule; check with your local Extension Service office about soil pH management in your locale.
