Testing Your Soil for Acidity

By: Tricia Craven Worley

It’s important to test the soil in your lawn and garden and correct it if it’s too acidic by adding lime. This will provide the optimum growing conditions for grass and other plants. Soiling testing kits are available at home centers, garden supply stores, as well as through your local extension service.
