Answer: 
If it's for a lawn, it depends on the PH level you want, but I only use it for veggie plants to prevent fruit rot.

Howdy Darrrs,
The soil pH is optimum at 6.5 on the pH scale (pH range 5.5 – 7.0). Sometimes the rose soil pH may be either too acidic or too alkaline, so what do we do to effect the desired change in the pH?

Howdy Darrrs,
The soil pH is optimum at 6.5 on the pH scale (pH range 5.5 – 7.0). Sometimes the rose soil pH may be either too acidic or too alkaline, so what do we do to effect the desired change in the pH?
To make the soil less acidic, the common practice is to add some form of lime. Typically, ground agricultural limestone is used and the finer the particles the more rapidly it becomes effective.
The amount of ground limestone to be used varies with the current soil makeup. Soils higher in clay will typically require more of the lime additive than those lower in clay.
To lower the pH level, aluminum sulfate and sulfur are typically used. The aluminum sulfate will quickly change the pH of the soil for roses where sulfur will take longer, as it requires the aid of the soil bacteria to make the change.
For any pH adjustment, apply the additives in small amounts and test the pH at least a couple of times before adding any more. Amendments to the soil will have some effect on the overall soil pH. We need to keep this in mind and keep an eye on the pH level. If the rose bushes start to change in their performance or even have an overall change in natural foliage coloration or natural shine, it could very well be an out of balance soil pH problem.
This could do the trick for you,
Happy Gardening,
Coach Dave
