soil-testing, important part of landscape maintenance

Why Is Soil Testing So Important?

Have you had trouble maintaining your plants in past years but you never knew why?  Your soil may be the culprit.  Before you plan out your garden this year, it’s critical for you to find out the condition of your soil.

Normal soil often lacks one or more essential nutrients such as phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, sulfur, manganese, copper and zinc.  However, all of the nutrients are necessary to feed your plants and keep them healthy. Sometimes the pH level of the soil, how acidic or basic it is, can be too high or too low for ideal plant growth. In that case, the dirt in your yard needs a bit of extra help to keep your plants happy.


Knowing exactly what your soil needs will prevent you from wasting time and resources on saving sick plants.  Get your plants off to a great start by testing the soil and remedying its needs. Quiet Village Landscaping can determine what minerals are missing from your soil, as well as the soil’s pH, so we can recommend the best fertilizer for your yard. We offer environmentally friendly fertilizers as well as advice on how to put the right plant in the right place.
