Why does my grass smell like lime?


Answer by  gcmeyer2 (787)

I assume you mean limestone not the fruit. If so, you are likely to have a lot of lime in the soil. A lawn care company can help test it.

Your grass may smell like lime if its getting to much minerals or to many chemicals if you are spraying it with pesticides.


Answer by  rightlight (1053)

Soil is frequently treated with lime in order to reach desired acidity levels. Either your landscaper put some down to improve growth, or you bought a fertilizer with lime.

More than likely, you have lime in the soil or sub ground area that is causing the smell. If the grass is growing nicely, you should probably leave it alone as the lime can help in growth.

This would be a limestore smell, which simply means there is a lot of lime in the soil. Have your soil tested and then rebalance the Ph.
