Soil Testing


Soil Testing

We begin all new programs with a soil test to determine your lawn's exact nutritional needs. This soil test is mandated by state law and is required to be performed every three years. Objectives of soil analysis and testing are to provide an index of nutrient availability or supply in a given soil. It is designed to evaluate a portion of the nutrients that can be used by the plant and to predict the probability of obtaining a profitable response to fertilizer application.

 

Lawns have minimum nutrient requirements below which plant health is sacrificed. Although nitrogen alone can produce a good looking lawn, long term plant health cannot be assured unless other nutrients are present in the correct amounts and the soil pH is in the preferred range.
