Soil Treatment for Healthier Lawns
Building a healthy lawn in Minnesota means starting from the soil up. At Rainbow Lawncare, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best results. We never take a one-size-fits all approach to soil treatments for lawns. Instead, we take the time to evaluate the conditions in your yard and then we create a custom-tailored plan. This starts with soil testing to determine what your lawn is lacking and how we can improve it.
How can soil testing help your lawn?
What information do soil tests include?
The soil tests performed by Rainbow include information on:
- The pH of the soil
- Organic matter content
- Cation exchange capacity (CEC), a measure of fertility, nutrient retention capacity, and the capacity to protect groundwater from contamination
- Available macro and micro nutrients
Fertilizer and soil amendments
Soil aeration is one of the best opportunities to correct poor soil composition, but is not the only soil treatment service available. Enriching the soil with nutrients by adding organic matter and fertilizer can promote a good looking, healthy lawn. Lawns with a higher percentage of organic matter will respond better to fertilizer and look healthier.
