Q.Sulfur in Soil

Anonymous added on November 10, 2010 | Answered

I moved into a new home last spring, and the people had dumped a couple bags of sulfur over the back lawn and now the grass is having a hard time growing in a couple of areas. It starts out ok and then looks like it starts to turn brown and burnt. Is there something I could use to neutralize the sulfur in the soil?

The sulfur is most likely reacting to other sprays that you are using on your lawn and this is what may be killing the grass. If you are using other sprays on your lawn, stop using them for a little while, especially in the areas where the grass is having trouble. In the mean time, you can try adding lime to the soil to help counteract the sulfur and also increase watering so as to leech the extra sulfur away.
