Question: 581-2911
We have a lot of limestone near our pond. Can we use that on our lawns? Katie, Upper Peninsula, MI

Mort's Answer:
Limestone is a soil sweetener. It is especially good for grasses, which like a pH over 7. Use 200 lbs per 5,000 sq.ft. every fall for the lawn. If you can pulverize it, you can reapply hydrated lime in the spring as well.
