Soil Testing

Why is Soil Testing Important?

Optimum soil is critical in maintaining a healthy lawn and therefore is an essential tool for developing a well-balanced fertilizer program. Soils with certain nutrient deficiencies, and pH levels not conducive to healthy turf, need to be addressed. Based on test results from a soil test, we can develop a program specialized for your lawn in order correct nutrient deficiencies and/or pH levels in the soil. We recommend a soil sample every few years on established lawns, or when establishing a new lawn.

What will a Soil Test Reveal?

A soil test will provide levels of the following information:

  • - pH levels
  • - Availability of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium
  • - Percentage of Organic Matter
  • - Micronutrients (as needed)

What is the procedure for sampling soil?

A technician will take a number of samples throughout your yard to make up a composite sample. This sample will then be submitted to a local laboratory for a fee. After receiving the test results, Lawnpro will contact the customer to explain the test results and make recommendations in building or changing a lawn care program. Good soil provides the foundation for a healthy, vigorous lawn that you can be proud of!
