Soil Analysis



A soil analysis is the best way to check that your grass has everything it needs in order to grow and thrive. Such an analysis identifies the quantities of nutrients which are present in the soil and are available to be used by the plants. The analysis also identifies what additional nutrients need to be added in order to promote excellent growing conditions.

Standard soil analysis:

 

Basic soil analysis – which tests the pH balance of the soil (i.e. the acid or alkaline content), as well as phosphate, potash and magnesium levels.
We can also test for many other nutrient levels, so if you have a particular problem let us know and we can carry out specific tests to then look at ways to address it.
When taking a soil analysis, we come to your fields or grounds and take a range of samples from different areas of the site. This means we get an analysis of the whole field, rather than just one area, which may not be a true representation of the whole field.
The samples are then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

 

We then send you the results together with recommendations on the type and quantities of nutrients which should be applied to the fields. 
Depending on the results of the analysis, it may well be that your fields or grounds do not require additional nutrients. This will save you money on buying unnecessary fertilisers, and you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment by reducing excessive fertiliser use.
 

For most people the soil analysis is the first step in improving their grass. M. Freeman & Sons can offer you the full service from taking the samples, to applying the correct amount of required nutrients on the field so please give us a call so that we can discuss your particular needs. Contact us
