In respect to this, when should I add sulfur to my lawn?
Because an abundance of sulfur can burn the grass, you must apply it over time. You can apply up to 5 pounds of elemental sulfur per 1,000 square feet of an established lawn. Make applications every three to four weeks during the cooler fall and spring weather.
Additionally, how do I apply Sulphur to my lawn? In the spring, apply five pounds of sulfur per 1,000 square feet of grass and water it into the existing lawn. For bare spots, spread sulfur and then mix it into the top six inches of soil.
Regarding this, is Sulfur good for your lawn?
Ground elemental sulfur, a common soil amendment, lowers the pH level of overly alkaline soils. A poor pH level keeps your lawn or garden from thriving. If your yard is "chalky," or alkaline, consider using sulfur to neutralize the pH level.
How much sulfur is needed to lower pH in lawn?
Established turf generally requires frequent applications of sulfur at relatively low rates to lower pH. On putting greens, applications normally are in the range of 0.5 pound sulfur per 1,000 square feet and should not exceed 10 pounds per 1,000 square feet per year.
