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.

What if I apply it and don't water it in but just wait for the rain to eventually take care of it...

Hi Timothy, Our Fast Acting Lime will still work if they wait for rain to move it into the soil. It will just delay the results/benefits of the lime. Thank you.

Does this repel snakes?

Answers

From the information I can find, lime does not repel snakes. I suppose you could throw the bag at them and that'd repel them, but spreading it on the ground will do nothing. My personal testing has shown that it repels elephants though. I put it down in my yard in Colorado about 2 years ago and haven't seen an elephant since.

How is this fast acting?? It had a CCE of only 90% and only 55% passes through a 50 mesh. That is slow release.

So, decomposition creates acids and lime helps offset the increased acidity. The problem is lime converts nitrogen into gas so you loose the nitrogen all together. If you wish to apply this lime, you should rake back the bark chips, apply the lime then rack the bark chips back over it.

Fast Acting Lime Plus seemed to works wonderfully so far. I applied a bag of Lime Plus at the beginning of fall, which was early November 2016 and I have the greenest lawn on the block. And even as the winter approaches, it seem to be working wonders. I even noticed a disappearance of crab grass upon using Lime Plus and this is my time using this product. And I would have giving it a 5, but I am yet to see how well it ends. Happy Customer!

I used three Pennington products including this to lay seed and unfortunately the results were very poor considering only 1% of the seeds actually grew.
