Soil Testing

Maintaining a healthy soil is key to growing healthy plants. Keys to a healthy soil include: incorporating organic matter (such as compost) regularly, improving aeration and decreasing compaction, and maintaining ideal soil pH and nutrient levels. Maintaining soil pH and nutrient levels requires a regular soil nutrient test. We recommend that you test your soil every 3-5 years.
