We have now approached one of our favorite seasons here at Mendham Garden Center…fall. The lawns have had a lot of moisture this summer, which as we know depletes the nitrogen from the soil. So, yes, it is a good time to fertilize again. Having the proper pH is essential to the way turf absorbs nutrients. Which means this is also a good time to do a pH test, which we do free of charge at our garden centers. If pH is below 6.8 you need to lime. Remember that one bag of lime covers approximately 800 square feet (That would mean approximately 50 40-lb bags per acre). We also do free in-store pH soil testing at our garden centers.
