The soil test will be carried out by a specialist soil testing company and analysed by an independent laboratory. A full report of the land will then be conducted and presented to you with a plan of what the land requires for optimum growth and quality of grass.
The small samples of soil are taken from the land in a small test tube and using an indicator solution can be tested on site and the pH of the soil can be detected instantly.
A small amount of soil is taken in various areas of the field to gauge an over all pH of the land. There may be patches with higher or lower pH and this will be picked up using a grid system for testing the land.
The test is either carried out on foot or with a quad bike so there is minimal damage to the land being tested.
Granulated Lime Spreading
Lime is spread across the land using a tractor and fertiliser spinner.
