Grass seed for acidic soil?

    Hello, I have a lawn that is slopped, clay with a pH of 4.7. I will be adding lime to adjust the pH but is there a grass seed that can tolerate acidic soil?

    Thanks,

    Many turf grasses will tolerate acidic soil, but none that will be thick and lush until you bring the PH up substantially. There are fast acting lime solutions that can affect the soil much more quickly than granular or pellitized lime, but with soil at your PH range, you will be liming forever.
