Elemental sulfur is required if your lawn just isn't growing the way you expect it too. We suggest getting a soil test before doing elemental sulfur since you'll be able to see if the pH is too. If the pH is over 8 then we recommend two treatments of elemental sulfur per season.
The Elemental Sulfur is a granular application that covers your entire lawn. After application it’s important to water it in so that the Elemental Sulfur and water will become sulfuric acid (very strong acid) and that will be embedded into the soil to help in lowering the pH. As you can see in the picture, lawns with pH below 6 or above 8 have a very tough time growing. The soil pH is one of the most overlooked metric that rarely gets talked about but it’s critical to make sure your lawn is the best on the block. At Yard Dawgs, we recommend doing a soil test first before applying Elemental Sulfur, therefore you can see what the pH was beforehand and track the progress year over year. You can also see that maybe the pH is in the normal range and you don’t actually need the Elemental Sulfur.

Gone are the days of being serviced my different technicians and having to worry that they may not recall what you mentioned the first time. With Yard Dawgs, you will have a dedicated service technician throughout the season.

Elemental Sulfur Common Questions
You ask, we answer.
Yes. We recommend watering it in on the same day as the application. That was the sulfur can decompose, start to oxidize and neutralize the pH.
There are many benefits but the four main ones are:
- Lowers soil pH level
- Protects against diseases
