Soil Test Kit

A soil test is the best way to check the growing potential of your garden.  You can buy the most attractive plants in the greenhouse or order the best seeds, but they won’t produce the best results if the soil lacks the proper nutrition or the proper qualities the soil should have.

The “routine” Garden and Landscape test will take the guess work out of your garden’s growing potential.  It will guide you in deciding which nutrients are lacking and sometimes, more importantly, which you have too much of.  Over-fertilizing is a common gardening problem.  It is not only expensive, but it may harm your garden’s production and your environment.
