Acidic soil is an excellent environment for weeds. If your lawn looks like it needs some help with weed control, the soil’s pH may be part of the problem. If you’re using fertilizer to provide nutrients to your plants, overly-acidic soil could be reducing its effectiveness.
Alkaline soil can prevent your plants from being able to take in specific nutrients, such as iron. Even though plants only need minimal amounts of iron, it’s a critical element for oxygen production and giving many of them that healthy green color.
Neutral soil is good soil. By being neither too acidic nor too alkaline, it provides an environment conducive to healthy plant growth.
