Q.

Planting vegetable garden in previously treated lawn

Zone 80211 | Anonymous added on February 19, 2018 | Answered

I have had my lawn treated with a product called Proganix by a local company for the last three years. Typically have 4 applications per summer. Here is a link to the product: http://www.lawndoctordenver.com/proganix-program http://www.lawndoctordenver.com/sites/default/files/progranix.png I'd like to pull up some of the sod and plant a vegetable garden, however I need to know if there is any danger to planting vegetables in the soil that has been treated with this product. If necessary, I can treat the soil, but need to know the best way to do that. Also, is it necessary to test the soil... thank you for your time.

I would advise a soil test to start your garden project.
Your County Extension Office can help you with a soil test for just a few dollars.
Here is a link to help you find your nearest office.

You can also create raised beds to garden in. Raised beds can allow you to bring in soil to create a good growing environment for your plants.

Here are some links with more information.
