    Does anyone routinely apply lyme to their exercise yards? We have a good base of mulch in ours and no standing water ,however we are thinking of applying powdered lyme every so often in order to keep things fresher .

    AG lime (Calcium Carbonate) can help with odors

    The pelletized form is easiest to use and doesn't create as much harmful dust

    Hydrated Lime (Calcium Hydroxide) is caustic, and should not be used
