Is lime good for grass seed?
The main reason to apply lime to your lawn is to raise the pH level. The ideal pH for grass is between 6 and 7. If your soil is too acidic, the grass will not be able to absorb essential nutrients. This leads to yellowing and dying of the grass blades.

How do you spread pelleted lime on a lawn?
Add pelleted lime to the hopper of a seed spreader. Adjust the dispersal rate of the spreader based on the results from the soil test.
