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.

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.

The key to application of this product is prior to light rain showers if a sprinkler system is unavailable. The product really works when quickly absorbed by the soil. It is very easily applied with use of a spreader.
