Buy a PH tester before you decide to lay some lime. I was going to buy $100 bucks worth and i tested my soil and did not even need lime. It was a good deal

Not sure. I got 2 bags of lime, 2 bags of fertilizer, and a small bag of Alfa-rack and it was like 90 bucks.

I bought a $15 ph tester and tested my soil then had a landscaping company test my soil to see how accurate my ph tester was. They were darn near the same.

what kind was it jake?

ronn 08-09-2008 10:56 AM

that will tell you the ph but if you send it out they can tell you how much and what flavor fertilizer you need to put down. maybe you need more organics or something.

those ph testers work but like ronn said they wont tell you what you need to add otherwise do the soil samples if you skimp in the begining your going to pay through the nose the whole rest of the time
