Bits and pieces

If you only need one analysis done.

Soil Biology Assessment

A microscopic analysis can determine the amount (ug/g) and types of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and nematodes present in a soil sample. This information is vital in understanding the health of soil.



Sunscaping provides an overview of the sun/shade patterns of your yard or garden throughout the day. This is important knowledge when planning your garden and where to put sun or shade loving plants.


Physical Soil Test

  • Soil sedimentation texture test to determine if your soil texture composition
  • Water infiltration test to determine how quickly water infiltrates your soil
