About the Event
Testing Lawn and Garden Soil *Test your own soil*
Learn how to test your personal soil, interpret the results, and develop a management plan for your lawns and gardens. Soil samples will be tested for composition, pH, and essential nutrients. Results will then be used to calculate nutrient amendments.
To collect a soil sample: remove ground cover, dig a 4
inch hole with a hand trowel, take a slice of soil (from the side of the hole, from ground level to the 4 inch depth), and place the soil in a baggie. Repeat collecting soil slices until you have
accumulated 1 to 2 cups of soil in the baggie. If you would like to take home your composition test, for more precise results, bring an empty, clear, glass jar to the workshop. Class size is limited to
ensure participants receive one-on-one assistance.
