Lime helps grass if the soil is very acidic, not otherwise.

Agricultural fertilizer is cheaper but don’t over do it because there will be a big surge of growth.

To give a first general boost use 18-6-12 and then only high nitrogen fertilizer such as CAN, no more than 15 to 20 g per square metre at a time.
