  • Want happy plants and a healthy lawn? Get a soil test!
    What's a soil test and why do it? A soil test provides information specific to your lawn or garden. You can save time, money, and angst by receiving lime and fertilizer recommendations based on your soil and what you want to grow - no more guessing! By applying only what's needed, you will also minimize any adverse environmental impacts from fertilizer use.
