Soil pH level, what does it mean?

What is a soil pH level, and what impact do they have on my turf grass?

PH tests are a method that indicates the acidity or alkalinity of the soil. A pH value of 7.0 is neutral. Values less than this are acidic, while values greater are alkaline. Soil pH can be raised by adding lime (increasing alkalinity) and lowered by adding sulfur (increasing acidity). Maintaining a proper pH level within your soil ensures the healthiest possible turf grass growth.
