IAS Lawn Analysis
IAS Laboratories now offer Lawn Analysis for your domestic lawn to ensure your lawn is in tip top condition. All healthy lawns begin with a well-balanced soil at its base. Soil testing provides information about the soil that is necessary to manage the soil for good plant growth. A typical soil test involves measuring certain aspects of the soil. These areas include the soil’s pH level, nutrient content, organic matter and soil profile.
It is important to look at Soil testing for lawns as it doesn’t just involve examining the soil for the lawn but also for any shrubs, trees, or gardens on your property. All of these things can be adversely affected by soil problems.
Without a soil test you are simply GUESSING how to fix your lawn’s problems. You are guessing at the right adjustments to make to your soil without scientific analysis. This is standard practice in all amenities including golf courses and sport pitches in Ireland and across the world.
