Is Your Soil Acidic?

A soil test kit will let you know if your soil has a low (acidic), neutral, or high (alkaline) pH. On a scale of 1 to 14, a pH of 1 is very acidic and a pH of 14 is very alkaline, while a pH reading of 7 is neutral.  Lawns grow best in soil that is slightly acidic to neutral (between 6.2 and a 7.0 on the pH scale).

Jonathan Green’s easy-to-use Soil pH Test Kit for Lawns determines pH levels in just five minutes. The kit includes one test tube, one capsule of powder, and one pH range color chart to help you identify the results. Use either distilled water or rainwater when performing this test in order to get accurate pH readings. The pH of tap water is adjusted by the water company.

Best Fertilizer for Acidic Soil

The Jonathan Green four-bag Annual Lawn Care Program for Acidic Soil greens up the lawn and gently feeds it all season long.  This program is used in the eastern and midwestern United States where soils generally have a low pH. It is specially formulated to raise soil pH and to kill crabgrass, dandelions, chickweed, clover, and over 250 other weeds. Use it with caution around children or pets. It should not be used when seeding because the weed controls will hurt the new seedlings.
