How to read your soil test
No two properties are the same, we know this. With this in mind we perform initial soil tests on every lawn we service to get a baseline understanding of your soil’s health. Based on the results, we determine soil pH and nutrient levels and deficiencies in your yard. From there, we recommend which treatments and amendments are needed—or not—to create improved soil quality and promote a lush, healthy, and green lawn. After our initial baseline test, we perform additional soil tests each year you work with us to monitor the health progression of your lawn.
While our technicians are trained to read and interpret these tests, we know they can look confusing at first glance. With this in mind, we’ve put together the following guide to help you learn more about how to read your test results for yourself. This way, you can better understand what we’re looking for in our soil test.
