    Is there such a thing as quality lime or a less quality lime? Is there one calcitic lime better than another calcitic lime? or even dolomitic lime better than another dolomitic? I was curious b/c i got on a website from a search engine of a lime producer in MS that said something to the effect of, "check out our quality lime...". I thought all lime was created equal. Thanks for the help.

    I have done a lot of research on aerating. During me research I learned; do not add lime unless the soil sample calls for it. I know this is not exactly what you you are looking for. I don't want you to damage your lawn.

    Thanks for the reply anyway, rick. I'm actually wanting to find out if there are cheap types of lime out there. I don't want to get a cheap type of lime that has adverse effects in the soil.

    Personally i think lime is lime. Ive used many different brands and it all does the same thing. They probably used "high quality" cause it makes their product sound better.
