Test your soil for better lawns and gardens

Avoid excessive fertilizer use, and guard against nutrient loss. A soil test shows exactly how much lime and fertilizer a lawn or garden needs. Science-based, reliable analysis and unbiased recommendations let you escape hit-or-miss gardening and lawn care. Contact the Livingston County Extension office today to find out how to collect a sample to bring in for analysis. The analysis is done at the University of Missouri Soil and Plant Testing Laboratory in Columbia at a cost of $15.00 for regular analysis test.
