I removed a large pine tree in my yard. The circle diameter in the
ground is close to 10ft. The tree was 20 years old. How do I treat the
underlying soil to make it ready for grass planting. Thanks for your help
The standard answer is "don't guess - get a soil test".
However, in practice, an educated guess would be 15 lbs of lime spread
over a 20' circle and worked into the soil. (lime placed on the surface
penetrates average soil 1"/yr.)
You certainly can add too much lime. It will kill grass very
effectively. That's what is used to mark football fields.
Limestone is not as bad, but applied thickly, it will behave the same.
