Soils are the foundation for most plants. Plants grow based on the nutrient levels of the soil. Soil tests are necessary to make accurate fertilizer recommendations for lawns, gardens, trees, and shrubs. Martin's will send soil samples to a professional testing laboratory for accurate results and recommendations. To get a good sample, gather at least six samples from the different areas to be tested and mix them together. Bring in about a soup can full of soil. When the soil test results come back, we will help you understand the result and how to amend your soil.
