Product Overview

Pennington Fast Acting Lime Plus AST goes to work right away to raise your soil pH. Low pH can cause moss and bare spots in your lawn and can encourage weeds to grow. Limestone helps balance soil pH to create a better soil environment for your lawn, which significantly reduces these problems. Pennington 30 lb. Fast Acting Lime Plus AST is more concentrated than regular dolomitic limestone, so you have to use only 30 lbs. to cover 5000 sq. ft. This unique formula combines Advanced Soil Technology (AST) with high-quality lime to maximize the benefit to the soil.

Customer Questions & Answers

Will adding lime to lawn help control invasive weeds like Star of Bethlehem and/or wild onion?

I have yet to find anything that will work on these, and pulling them out of the ground seems futile and redundant as the bulblets sometimes break away and stay grounded. I've heard using lime creates a poor environment for these bulbous weeds. My lawn is a warm season grass and hasn't come out of dormancy yet, so these are quickly overtaking each year.
Asked by: Jess
What does star of Bethleham look like and is it the same as the wild onion? we spred Scotts thru out the seasons and still get thistle , ground ivy and crab grass so what can we do? Barbara Moore

I have thatched and aerated my lawn. Do I reseed, peat moss, then put the lime/furtilizer on? Any time between layers?

Asked by: Jenny
Put fertilizer and lime down first or it won't contact the soil and be dispersed properly.

Should this be watered in soon after applying?

Should I apply this before/after rain, or does it not matter at all?
Asked by: Anonymous
It won't do much to help raise ph til it is watered in or rained on.

I treat my yard with chemical fertilizers and as a result the soil gets acidic over time. I was really dreading loading and spreading 10 bags of conventional limestone pellets so I was glad to see this concentrated product which covers 5,000 square feet per bag so my yard only required 2 bags. It did 'green up' the yard after a good rain and was easy to apply. I wish I had tested the pH before I applied the fast acting lime so I could tell how much it changed the pH. The real test will be if it helps control the violets since they like acidic soil. But it will be a while before I know about that.

I can not say how good it actually works but I will say that the setting listed on the bag for the Scott's 2000 is wrong. It says to use "7". I've had this broadcast spreader for years and with every other product I've used, the other company's settings were right. I used the #7 setting and it did not cover 5000 sq-ft. It only covered 1500! Instead of buying more of this to finish the job, I am going to just switch back to my usual lime pellets... Cheaper and I know how much I should be putting down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spreader Settings Incorrect, Use a Pelletized Product According to the bag, a Scott's 2000 spreader setting is supposed to be 7 to attain the 40lbs/5000 square feet. Not even close. The problem lies in that the product has an uneven granular mix, some powder, some small pellets. A drop spreader might make more sense, and whatever you do, wait for a non breezy day, as the powder portion of the mix may never reach the area you want to apply it to. The Scott's spreader was adjusted correctly, and coverage was a little less than half of the promised area. While a pelletized product might be more expensive, based on the promised coverage, you will have much better control of the application over this mix. Plus, windage should be less of a problem.

I put down regular lime in early Spring, but it didn't seem to make a difference, so I decided to give this a try. I waited several weeks before testing my soil and was pleased to see it made a difference. I also checked other stores regarding price and Home Depot beat the competition hands down.

In my opinion it did absolutely nothing. Neither my wife or myself see any improvement in the lawn. You live and learn what NOT to use and waste your money on. Bought 2 bags, did not even use up one, per manufacturers instructions written on the bag.

Gets your lawn for time release feed with moss out, then weed and feed it. The powder type of lime you have to put on before winter so the rain "very slowly" dissolves it. Powder can choke out your lawn.
