Last season I had a soil sample analyzed for my own personal 4.8 acre lot. The results show, within the Solid pH section a value of 5:6. The results yielded the following recommendations in lbs per 1,000sf: Lime: 70lbs N: 3-4 P2O5: 2.0 K2O: 4.0 Mg: 0 Tackling the first item of lime, I'm calculating just over 5 tons of lime for just shy of 5 acres. A local company applies pelletized lime and for this amount would charge roughly $300.00 applied. My question is, basically, is it worth it? I'm pleased with the appearance of my lawn (http://www.lawnsite.com/showpost.php?p=4354995&postcount=12 but would like to get the pH within a range where I can manage it with small applications annually and address any NPK needs. That is, if I'll see a worthwhile gain in appearance and grown for the investment in lime. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
