a reliable 'lime' calculator? help :)
I just can't seem to wrap my head around this calculation and I'm getting different answers using online "lime" calculators for my yard.
We're working on the front lawn only. We're estimating it to be about 7500 sq ft. Our soil test indicates our ph to be 5.8 and is recommending 110 lb/1000 sq ft. Since this exceeds the "100lb/1000sq ft" rule, we'll be liming in the fall as well.
Here's what I just can't seem to figure out....(soooo blonde today!)
needing 100 lb per sq ft and I have 7500 sq ft of lawn....and the lime comes in 40 lb bags. How many bags do I need to get?
Or, what info am I missing? I feel like I"m having a mental block sitting at my desk at school. So, here I am, raising my hand....I've got a question.
Who can help?? Thanks!
