Why You Should Lime Your Lawn In Spring

3 Min

Although it may not feel like it in many parts of our great (and cold) country, it is, technically, officially spring in Canada. We made it, folks! Lawn care season is just around the corner.

 Early spring is an ideal time to lime your lawn, and is a great way to further improve your soil after performing a core aeration on your lawn. If your lawn is wilted or dormant, never apply lime; instead, wait for a time when the lawn is actively growing like early spring or fall.

Regular liming can do a wealth of good for your grass. With a number of benefits, calcitic lime is a welcome addition for every home lawn, especially those that need a little TLC.

With baseball starting and Easter coming fast, it's hard to deny that spring is here. That means it's time to start mentally preparing for the lawn care season, even if your grass won't see any action for a few weeks yet. 

Here's why spring is the perfect time to lime your lawn
