The first thing you need to do is to test
your soil to see if the pH is correct. Regardless of how much fertilizer you put on its not
going to do anything because it needs the right pH for it to absorb the nutrients. So
that is what the testing is all about. When you are doing a soil test you want to
make sure that you do a randomized sample throughout your entire yard. You take those
composite little samples and mix them in a bucket and then bring just a cup of that sample
and put it in the soil test bag and you can take it to any of your local extension agencies
and they can send it off for you. They will mail you back the composition of
your soil. We will be able to tell you exactly how much
fertilizer of what strength and whether you need lime whether the soil is too acid too
base.
