Understanding Soil Amendments in Los Angeles
The soil in many California lawns tends to run dry and become nutrient-starved, thanks to the general lack of precipitation in the area. It's difficult to get anything to grow on lawns like these without professional assistance, and brown spots, dead grass, and insects may infiltrate your lawn as they take advantage of its less-than-stellar condition.
Soil amendments in Los Angeles will bring life back to your soil so that it probably absorbs and retains water and that all kinds of grass and plant seeds grow healthily. Soil amendments include items such as organic materials like compost and manure that help to add both texture and richness to your lawn, or they may be chemical in order to alter your soil's pH levels. Balancing the acidity or alkaline nature of your soil helps to encourage both plant and grass growth for an overall healthier, nicer-looking lawn.
In California, the most commonly utilized soil amendments include:
- Ammonium sulfate
Our team at Aerations Plus will help you decide which soil amendment product, or combination of products, is best for your lawn.
The Benefits of Professional Soil Amendment
Professional soil amendment services have several benefits, such as improved lawn aeration, something that helps nourish the roots of your grass and plants, and better water and nutrient retention. Soil amendments also encourage greater root depth for healthier plans and more efficient lawn drainage.
It's important to note that soil amendment is different from lawn fertilizing in that it improves the soil of your lawn and the delivery of nutrients to grass and other plants in your outdoor areas. Lawn fertilizers feed the grass and plants in your yard, but without properly optimized soil to deliver these nutrients; lawn fertilizers won't work as effectively.
Our team evaluates your lawn to determine if it needs soil amendments before applying any lawn fertilization or other treatment methods. This evaluation helps ensure our irrigation plans are as effective as possible.
Our Soil Amendment Process
Our soil amendment process utilizes three steps that help us customize treatment plans for your lawn and ensure that we provide you with the best soil amendment solutions possible.
Testing Your Soil's pH
The first part of any soil amendment process is testing your soil's pH level. This step will determine if it needs to be more alkaline or more acidic because pH-balanced soil is essential for new grass and plant growth and something you should regularly monitor to maintain optimal lawn health.
Choosing the Best Soil Amendment
After checking and balancing your soil's pH as needed, our expert technicians will work with you to determine which soil amendment solution is best. This amendment could be an organic material, a chemical one, or any combination of these options. Customized soil amendment solutions are what help your lawn thrive.
