How to collect a soil sample:
- Using a clean trowel, take and combine several smaller samples in each separate area of your property that you want to test. Take a sample at a depth of 3-4" for lawn, 6-8" for vegetables and flowers and 12 -18" for fruit trees. Do not sample recently fertilized, limed or very wet soil. You can take the sample from different parts of the lawn or garden.
- Take approximately one cup of soil and spread it on a piece of paper to dry overnight.
- Transfer the sample to a small zip-lock bag. Write on the bag your name and the type of plants you plan to grow and bring it with you.
