(dolomitic) Pellet or Powder available
As a general rule of thumb in Nova Scotia, you would typically apply about 30 pounds (14kg) per 1000 square feet every year to maintain pH at present levels. However, this will not always be enough. If you are applying limestone to an already lush and green lawn, you can probably cut the above application rate in half. On the other hand if your lawn has a very low pH, you might need to double the typical application to correct the problem.
Pelletized lime has become an increasingly popular product as it provides 30 percent better coverage than powdered lime, it reacts in the soil more quickly, and it is easier to spread (less dust and more consistent coverage).
Mosher’s agricultural limestone will not burn and therefore can be applied at any time. The best spreaders for applying Mosher limestone are the drop style spreaders. These spreaders minimize dusting and apply an even coat. When applying, it is best to make two applications with the second perpendicular to the first. This ensures an even coat with no missed areas on your lawn.
Common Types of limestone
The two most common forms of limestone incorporated into growing media are calcitic and dolomitic limestone:
Calcitic limestone is calcium carbonate and it neutralizes acids in the growing medium. It provides some calcium, but almost no magnesium. Calcitic limestone dissolves faster than dolomitic limestone so it quickly adjusts growing medium pH within one week, but has shorter residual of up to 1-2 months.
Dolomitic limestone is a combination of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate and serves two purposes in the growing medium. Primarily, it neutralizes acids in the growing medium but also provides some additional magnesium and calcium for plant uptake. Dolomitic limestone dissolves slowly in the growing medium resulting in longer term pH adjustment (up to 2-4 months) and buffering to improve pH stability
Ever wonder what the numbers found on the fertilizer bags stand for?
Nutrient values (N-P-K)are shown as total percentage of weight as packaged. Organic nutrients tend to have alot lower npk values than chemical nutrients. The amount of NPK required depends on the application or the results you are trying to achive
What does N-P-K stand for?
N = Nitrogen
Nitrogen is the first major element responsible for the vegetative growth of plants above ground. With a good supply, plants grow sturdily and mature rapidly, with rich, dark green foliage.
P = Phosphorus
The second major element in plant nutrition, phosphorus is essential for healthy growth, strong roots, fruit and flower development, and greater resistance to disease.
K = Potassium (Potash)
The third major plant nutrient, potassium oxide is essential for the development of a strong root system. It helps plants to resist diseases, protects them from the cold and drought.
Iron is an important additive for your soil. It has three main purposes, the first being to help yellow lawns turn green, encourage growth and being a effective way to kill moss.

Corn gluten meal, the protein fraction in corn, is an herbicide that inhibits root formation in a wide variety of grasses and broadleaf weeds during germination. , because of its high nitrogen content can be applied to turf grass as a fertilizer and top dressing. Although large application rates are needed, it is an effective preemergent herbicide that suppresses growth of annual weeds such as crabgrass. The recommended rate and timing of application is 20 lbs./1,000 sq. ft. before germination of annual weeds in the spring, followed by a second, similar application in late summer.
