Why should I test my soil?
  • To know how much lime and fertilizer your soil needs for best growth of your lawn, garden, landscape, or other plants.
  • Prevents from applying too much or not enough.
    1. Too much wastes your money and can damage the environment by running off into water.
    2. Not enough can result in poor growth and leave soils bare to erode.
