Soil Testing


Testing your soil is an important step to maintaining your garden or lawn. Check out our resources available below. You may mail out your soil sample yourself with the downloadable forms, or bring them into the Extension Office. All you need is three teaspoons of dry soil in zip lock bags. Be sure to label them if you are bringing in more then one sample. Follow the instruction provided below to insure you are gathering the proper mixture of your soil.
