County Farm Service's years of
experience with local soil and growing conditions lets us offer
you an effective lime and fertilizing program tailored to your
lawn's special needs. This is especially important with the
wide range of soil types and qualities in this area. We can
schedule a free lawn inspection and soil testing by one
of our trained staff today at no cost or obligation to you.
Just stop by or call us at (540) 825-2381.
Soil texture and soil pH (= the measure of soil acidity) are
two important aspects for a successful garden or lawn project.
Soil texture can be improved by mixing in organic matter such
as planting mixes, soil conditioner, peat moss, composted manure
Soil pH affects the ability of soil to release the nutrients
in fertilizer. When the pH - measured with numbers between 1
and 10 - is too low/high it cannot efficiently release the nutrients
in fertilizer. Most turf and pasture grasses do well in soil
with a pH between 6.3 and 6.5. PH can be adjusted by applying
lime (to raise it) or sulphur (to lower it). We can determine
the exact amount you need by knowing your soil test results
and the size of the treatment area.
For your lawn or garden, we offer a full line of high quality,
competitively priced lawn care products for those with the time
and energy to do it themselves; or we can apply needed fertilizer
per soil test results through our Lawn Service Department. We
also offer products for weed kill, crabgrass control, wiregrass
kill, and fungicides for killing brown patch, red thread, and
other fungi that may appear in your lawn.
In addition to Scott's Turf Builder and Lawn Pro fertilizers and weed
& feed lawn care products, we offer a wide variety of bag fertilizer
analyses - including:
