Soil Testing and Lawn GPS

Soil Testing -$19.99

When's the last time you had the soil in your yard tested? If your like most folks you probably thought about it but never got around to doing it. Why not let us do it for you? We will perform a multi-core soil sampling that we help us establish a baseline in which to develop the right treatment program for your lawn. Each lawn is its own unique eco-system and even within that eco-system exist micro-climates that affect the macronutrients(nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, calcium, and magnesium) and micronutrients(zinc, copper, manganese, and iron) essential for a healthy lawn. Soil testing is the place to start if you are serious about beautiful and vibrant grass by giving it what it needs and nothing that it doesn't.

Do you know the square footage of your yard? Square footage of the grass areas? We didn't think! Why is this important? Take a few minutes to check out any bag of fertilizer, grass seed, or herbicide you have and read over the instructions concerning application rates - it's always based on pounds per 1000 square feet of surface area. So if you don't know your yard size in square feet, how can you be certain that you are using the correct amount of a given product?
The Cottage Gardener uses the latest in GPS technology to give you the exact square footage of your yard and of the grass areas so that whether we do your lawn or you do it yourself, the correct amount of product is being applied for your yard. It can save time and money and it helps to reduce run-off and leaching of chemicals and fertilizers, becoming a very effective passive environmental control.
