Building a healthy lawn begins with the soil. Lawns need more than nitrogen, phosphorus and potash to grow. Unfortunately; it is rare that a property has the perfect soil for lawn. Pine needles and pets can add unwanted acid to the soil increasing it’s ph level. While sandy soil, common in the Muskoka region, allows moisture to slip away.
Lime is used to make soil less acidic while materials such as peat, diatomaceous earth and organic compost will make existing soil hold more water. These products are the perfect enhancements for Muskoka's sand and silt based soils.
