Soil Test

Conducting a soil sample analysis for your lawn offers several key advantages:

Optimized Fertilization: Soil analysis reveals the nutrient levels present in your soil. By understanding these levels, we can tailor your fertilization regimen to provide your lawn with the precise nutrients it needs for optimal growth. This targeted approach minimizes waste and maximizes the effectiveness of the fertilization efforts.

pH Balance: Soil pH significantly impacts nutrient availability to plants. By testing your soil, we can determine its pH level and adjust it as needed to create an environment where grass and other plants can thrive. Correcting pH imbalances ensures that your lawn can effectively absorb essential nutrients from the soil.

Improved Soil Structure: Soil texture and composition affect drainage, aeration, and root development. Through soil analysis, you can identify issues that may hinder healthy root growth. Implementing strategies to improve soil structure, such as aerating or adding organic matter, can promote better water infiltration and root penetration.

Identifying Soil Deficiencies: Soil testing reveals deficiencies in essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Addressing these deficiencies through targeted fertilization or soil amendments can remedy nutrient imbalances and promote a healthier, more resilient lawn.

Cost Savings: By accurately assessing your lawn's nutrient needs, we can avoid over-application of fertilizers, pesticides, and other lawn care products. This saves you money on unnecessary inputs.

Preventative Maintenance: Soil analysis can help identify potential problems before they become visible in your lawn. Early detection of issues such as nutrient deficiencies, pH imbalances, or soil compaction allows you to take proactive measures to address them, preventing more significant problems down the road.

The process of taking the soil samples is:

  • We will visit your property to take multiple core soil samples over several locations throughout the yard. 

  • We then pack & ship it to the lab for analysis.

  • The soil sample is analyzed to determine its composition, nutrient levels & characteristics, such as the pH balance, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, calcium & organic matter.

  • We will make recommendations for amendments needed based on the results from the lab.
