Sound Off: According to the soil sample I sent in, K-State says I need lime in my yard. Is it too late to aerate and put down lime, or should I wait until spring?
Lime could be applied to a lawn this time of year if it is a new lawn area that will be seeded over the winter or early spring,” said Douglas County Extension horticulture agent Jennifer Smith. “For an existing lawn, lime is best applied after core aeration, and core aeration at this time of year will do more harm than good. For best results on existing lawns, core aerate and apply lime or sulfur in March or September.
