Mag-I-Cal® for Lawns in Acidic Soil, developed by Jonathan Green, is designed to address the problem of poor soil with low pH levels, which can negatively impact lawn growth and health. The product contains calcium carbonate in a completely soluble form, making it readily available to adjust the soil pH upwards. Calcium is essential for various grass plant functions, and by supplying it in a soluble form, the lawn can benefit from its immediate availability.
Lawns typically thrive in soil with pH levels between 6.2 and 7.0. When the soil pH falls below this range and becomes acidic, several issues can arise. Grass may turn light green, weeds may persist, and the nutrients from fertilizers may not be fully absorbed by the grass. This can lead to inefficient nutrient utilization and less healthy turf.
Mag-I-Cal® Plus also includes humates, which are organic compounds that stimulate soil microbial life. Balancing soil chemistry and biology is crucial because it allows for better nutrient cycling and uptake by the grass. When the soil is biologically active and properly balanced, the nutrients provided by lawn fertilizers are utilized more efficiently, leading to healthier and thriving grass.
By using Mag-I-Cal® for Lawns in Acidic Soil, homeowners can improve their lawn's soil pH, ensure better nutrient absorption, and foster a more favorable environment for grass growth. Ultimately, this can result in a lusher, greener lawn with fewer weed problems. However, it's essential to follow the product instructions and conduct a soil test before application to determine the appropriate amount needed for the specific lawn's requirements.
