14 being alkaline and 3 being acid, and 7 is neutral

sulfur will bring it down from alkaline

lime will bring it from acidic to neutral

scabyscapes is right.Another option is aerate and topdress with peat moss.Let them know this is not a "one time deal".The soil pH will change from season to season and year to year.It's normal for the pH to drop after a season of fertilizing,due to the fact,as the grass grows,it's taking in more nutrients from the soil.
