Basic Soil Testing
Our basic soil testing involves screening for the five macronutrients crucial for plant growth, namely potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, nitrate-nitrogen, and calcium. We will also identify the pH level to determine if the soil on your lawn is acidic or alkaline. Standard soil testing will also reveal lime requirement to raise pH level back to its ideal range.
Total Organic Matter Soil Testing
This soil testing service involves identifying the presence of the five essential macronutrients, pH level, and cation exchange capacity or the ability of soil to hold nutrients. The test will provide you with accurate information on the current organic matter level in your lawn. Our results are instrumental in formulating a customized nutrient recommendation for your lawn.
Micronutrient Soil Testing
The soil sample from your lawn will be assessed for the presence of micronutrients, including zinc, iron, calcium, boron, manganese, copper, and many more. These micronutrients are found in trace amounts and are essential to optimum plant health. We detect the accurate values of each micronutrient and identify the presence of nutrient deficiencies. The results help craft recommendations on the correct dose of micronutrients during fertilization
Soil Texture Soil Testing
This soil testing is determined by its feel in moist conditions. We perform a detailed assessment to determine the percentage of gravel, clay, and silt in your lawn. The soil will then be classified into three categories: sand, loam, or clay. Depending on the soil composition, we will recommend applying amendments, including sand, clay, vermiculite, and organic matter.
Heavy Metal Screening
If you suspect heavy metal contamination of your lawn, we will perform detailed testing to identify the presence of toxic residues, pesticides, and synthetic products in your lawn’s native soil. As some chemicals may remain in the soil for decades, we will determine the level of extractable cadmium, lead, and arsenic in the soil, and evaluate whether their concentration can wreak havoc to your lawn or otherwise.
