For successful gardening and planting, understanding the make-up of your soil is key. Soil testing is a process that identifies deficiencies in the ground being planted. While you can purchase soil test kits that identify the level of one specific element, you’ll also find comprehensive soil testing kits that grade more than one soil condition including acidity, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels.
Ph meters can be reused to help you gauge the acidity level of your soil on an ongoing basis and provide a somewhat quicker read than when testing a soil’s acidity using a test kit. Moisture meters are also helpful gardening tools to have on hand to help ensure you don’t overwater your garden or a specific plant.
When you’re looking to understand if your soil is sufficient enough to support a specific plant, grass or an entire garden, try a soil testing kit from Ace. For more advice, visit our lawn and garden guide.
