beginner soil test

Zone 51106 | Anonymous added on July 27, 2017 | Answered

How does one go about doing a soil sample?. I am sorry to sound unexperienced. Do I hire someone or can I perform this task myself? And if I can perform on my own, what materials and tools would I need. Much appreciated Zg

No need to hire anyone or even seek professional advice. Go to any good garden centre and ask for a soil test kit. The instructions will be clear on the product label. When doing the test of your soil decide what you are going to plant there, and then look for the appropriate ph level required for the plants you are putting there. It will vary from acid, through neutral, to alkaline. It is a very easy process.
