Here’s the secret to a lush lawn

EC+ Enhanced Calcitic Lime
Extra time at home this spring? Why not make your lawn more beautiful? The secret to a thriving, healthy lawn is your soil pH.

The pH of our soil is important because it influences the availability of essential nutrients. At a soil pH of 6.5, the highest number of nutrients are available for plant use. If your soil is too acidic, some nutrients become less available, and the soil is more prone to bacteria.

How do you improve your soil’s pH levels?

Consider a product like EC+ Enhanced Calcitic Lime, which supplies essential calcium and carbon to your soil, raising your soil’s pH in weeks rather than months. Powered by the dual-action technology of Humoxy, EC+ acts as a root-growth stimulator, increasing the root mass and stimulating the availability and absorption of the nutrients.  The EC+ formula, which contains 36 percent calcium and uniform NPK compound in each granule, is ground to 200-plus mesh and sprayed with soybean oil for dust control.

To raise your soil’s pH and significantly increase calcium levels, use EC+ at the rate of 10 to 12 pounds per 1,000 square feet. One 50-pound bag of EC+ at this corrective rate will cover 4,000 square feet. Compared to four bags of pelletized lime for the same coverage, the price cost is about the same.

For best results, we recommend you contact your local Co-op for soil testing. Those results will give a specific recommended rate for your lawn.

For more information about EC+, contact your local Co-op.
