Soil Test

Although trees are a dominant fixture in your landscape, they share the stage with grass, shrubs and plants. All of these have one resource in common, the soil. Every treatment applied to the lawn can impact the vitality of a tree and conversely.

Soil is made up of minerals, organic matter, air and water. It produces nutrients and serves as a foundation for plants and trees. Improving your soil increases plant health and is critical to growing a lawn you’ll enjoy for a lifetime.

Lawns and plants require 18 nutrients for healthy growth and productivity. The soil is a reservoir for these nutrients. The trees and plants utilize these nutrients, but they need to be replenished from time to time. By having your soil tested you will learn whether your soil is acidic, neutral or alkaline. You will also learn which nutrients are present and which ones need to be added. Based on your results, you will receive a custom fertilization program to meet the needs of your trees, plants and lawn.
