    Need more info!

    Did you pull a soil test?

    What is your pH and Bph?

    Is this a lawn?

    Why are you using pell lime?

    depending on how much you are needing to raise the PH. The most that should be applied at once is 50# per M, so for an acre, you are looking at just over a ton (2200).

    I did the same thing 2 years ago but it was a old stump that had been covered over for years and finally rotted away underground.
