Fall and Spring are Great Times to Test Your Soil

Posted on April 20, 2022

Guessing about additives for your lawn or garden usually means too little or too much fertilizer gets added. If you haven’t had your soil tested in the last four years, consider taking a soil test. Find out what your soil needs. You can take soil samples any time the ground isn’t frozen.

Procedures may vary from county to county.For information and forms to submit a soil sample in Waukesha County, see https://www.waukeshacounty.gov/uwex/hort/st/.
