Lime for my lawn

Asked April 5, 2019, 10:43 AM EDT

General recommendations tell us to put lime in our lawn if I have a dog. I live in the Black Hills, on a mountain of limestone. Should I lime my yard, it sounds like pellets work better to apply, and take 2 years to work into the ground. Also, instructions say it's not good for dogs, my dog is outside a lot.

Soils in South Dakota are mostly Alkaline and the recommendation for lime addition to soils was mostly for areas that have acidic soils. Best thing for your lawn with a dog is to keep it well watered which will drain the salts away from grass roots...
