Q.I have questions about obtaining soil samples and about the value of mushroom mulch.

Zone 29466 | garrdr added on May 9, 2018 | Answered

I would like to obtain soil samples from my large yard. How many samples should I obtain, what type of container should I use, where do I send the samples, how do I pay for the analysis, and what other information do I need?

I have lost a lost of grass, both St. Augustine and Centipede. It was suggested that I have mushroom mulch spread on my yard. I have had a company both fertilizing and treating the yard for weeds. Is mushroom mulch a good product to use? What other approaches might be advisable?
