Soil Test Soil is made up of minerals, organic matter (living and dead), air and water. Soil provides nutrients and serves as a foundation for plants. Improving your soil increases plant health and is critical to growing a lawn or garden you’ll enjoy for a lifetime. Importance of a Soil Test

For ideal plant growth, soil needs the proper pH level. pH is a measurement of how acidic or alkaline material or substance is. Soil pH signifies a plant’s ability to draw nutrients from the soil. pH is measured on a scale of 1 to 14 with a measurement of 7.0 considered neutral. A number below 7 is acidic (sometimes called “sour”) and above 7 is alkaline (sweet).

A soil test determines whether your soil is neutral, alkaline or acidic so you can adjust the soil to the appropriate pH level for what you want to grow.  To achieve the desired pH goal, acidic soil may require the application of lime. Alkaline soils require a different type of conditioner, probably containing sulfur. A soil test also indicates which elements are missing from your soil and how much to add to remedy the problem.
