There are many people who are trying to finish up those home projects while it’s not hot out anymore and before the winter cold comes. Many homeowners during the fall are planting bulbs in order to make sure that they have beautiful gardens for the Springtime. If you’re a gardener, you might not have realized this but depending on the type of stone that you have in your garden you can change the pH of the soil. Today we are going to talk about limestone and how it can be used for a beneficial purpose. Not to mention that it is a beautiful stone that compliments the natural look that the mountains in Colorado provide.

When it comes to soil it has the tendency to become acidic over time. When you’re planning a garden, it is crucial that you have the right type of soil otherwise what you plant won’t grow. Plants are expensive, so you don’t want to spend all of that money just to have them die. Limestone in your garden can help to make sure that your soil is at the proper pH level to ensure your plants will grow and thrive. This will help to neutralize your soil. Neutralizing goes a long way when it comes to the health of your lawn and plants.

Since limestone is able to neutralize the soil it allows your plants to better take in the nutrients it needs in order to thrive. Additionally, herbicides work much more successfully when the pH level is neutralized. But this can only be accomplished by means of putting limestone in your garden. With its incredible record of helping the soil, this is one stone you will definitely want in your yard and garden. Don’t just get your garden ready for spring by planting bulbs, make sure your soil is rich in nutrients.
