ATYU - Soil Test - Summer '17

Postby ATYU » July 20th, 2017, 2:11 pm

Hi y'all!

Image

My concern:
What do I need to add and where do I get it from?

My Goal for Fall '17:
Apply Glyphosate (RoundUp) to kill the current grass/weed.
Dethatch & Aerate Soil
Plant new seeds

Thank you

Hi, just wondering if anyone can give some feedback (yes, I understand it's volunteer work..it's just that it's that time when I really need to start prepping for the fall complete reno/redo. :) ) Thank you

You're still a few entries down in the queue for a full write-up, but I've done the preliminary work and there is nothing that is major work in that test. There is absolutely nothing that is going to interfere with a renovation.

PS: please follow the guidelines for test depth on future tests - the 5" depth requires additional work to standardize the results.
