SOIL TESTING IN MASSACHUSETTS AND CONNECTICUT
The soil, for any homeowner’s lawn, is essential for grass to have all of its necessary nutrients. If your soil is nutrient deficient, your grass will not thrive. Through our soil testing service, we can identify nutrient deficiencies and pH imbalances to address them in the best possible manner. If there is a major nutrient deficiency, we can amend the soil immediately, but sometimes the issue a lawn may be experiencing is its pH. This is a measure of how acidic or basic your ground structure is.
- Grass in our area of New England prefers soil pH to be between 6.2 and 6.8.
- If your soil is too acidic (below 6.2), thatch, weeds, and diseases will thrive.
- If your soil is too basic (above 7), it will be hard for your grass to extract nutrients from the ground.
No matter what state your property’s pH is in, our turf managers in Western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut will develop a solution for your soil pH problem. Every lawn starts with a strong foundation, that foundation is under ground. Contact New England Lawncare today to find out what’s going on in the soil structure of your property today.
