Q.How Do You Treat Your Lawn Soil To Change It From Strongly Basic To Slightly Acidic?

Zone Plano, Texas 75024 | Anonymous added on April 30, 2024 | Answered

My lawn grass is dying. I have a difficult fungus in the soil that is killing my grass. The fungus was identified by Texas A & M’s Plant Identification Lab to be “Take-All Root Rot.” I tracked down a funguscide that can be used to treat it. The funguscide was very expensive and it didn’t work. The next recommendation to treat it, is to adjust the pH of the soil so it is slightly acidic. My soil is strongly basic. What can I do or add to my soil to make it slightly acidic?
