Testing Services


Soil samples can be tested to help clientele develop and maintain a more productive soil by providing information on nutrient availability and soil pH.  A basic soil test generally takes 7-10 business days and costs $8.00, payable with check or cash. We provide free soil sample bags available at our office for your convenience. 

Water samples can also be tested for a variety of purposes. The basic water test checks for pH, water hardness, and the presence of 15 minerals.  The cost for the basic water test is $22.00 payable with a check or cash.  We offer free water sample bottles available at our office for your convenience.
