    Here is a simple answer.
    "Lime: Limestone is the most common soil additive for raising pH of your soil to make it less acidic. ...
    Wood Ash: For an organic way to make your soil less acidic, sprinkle about 1/2″ of wood ash over your soil and mix it into the soil about a foot deep."
    However, lime is easy to apply and can be watered in to make it mix down into the soil without having to mix it in. In some areas, you do not want to do any mixing...such as lawns, etc.
