Soil Testing Program

For many, a well-manicured lawn creates a sense of pride. It’s a first impression and place to enjoy time outdoors with family and friends. However, many times these pristine lawns rely heavily on expensive applications of chemical fertilizer and pesticide treatments for a quick fix - but it doesn’t have to be that way! By focusing on building healthy soil we can cut down on those harmful chemical inputs and ensure that our lawn is rooted in a foundation that will allow it to prosper.

The benefits of a healthy lawn go beyond curb appeal and the satisfaction of a job well done. A healthy lawn will create the right environment for plants to thrive while holding the soil in place and allowing water to soak in rather than leave your property as stormwater runoff. Healthy soils will require fewer inputs and amendments, saving you time and money while preventing excess nutrients from entering our waterways.

The reality is that a healthy lawn will require commitment, maintenance and upkeep, but it really isn’t all that complicated. Let us help you to get started down the path of improving soil health and protecting water quality by providing you with a FREE soil test and FREE three year nutrient management plan tailored to your yards specific needs. To see if you qualify, please reference the map below or give us a call at (417) 836-4847 for more information.
