Soil Testing
The Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM Homeowner program educates homeowners about how to design, install, and maintain healthy landscapes that use a minimum of water, fertilizer, and pesticides. The result? Low-cost, low-maintenance, attractive landscapes that add value to your community and reduce the chance of polluting the water supply.

Soil Testing
In order to obtain reliable results from a soil test, the soil sample must be taken correctly. The soil sample should accurately represent the area that will be planted and managed. The items needed to take a soil sample include a plastic bucket, a shovel (or soil probe), and a paper bag or newspaper.
