|Any project would greatly benefit from proper soil and nutrient analysis before any course of revegetation is established. Identifying not only the nutrient deficiencies but the extent of those deficiencies will prove greatly worthwhile to your project and will allow for a more cost-effective and accurate plan of action.
Due to the vast array of fertilizer products, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels should be checked prior to hydroseeding or other wet broadcast seeding applications. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels are only a portion of what soil analysis offers. Various other soil modification products are also available through Terrasol and all would benefit from a full soil and nutrient analysis.
Soil analysis requires special handling and sampling procedures to ensure an accurate representation of the site and therefore it is recommended that you have a professional company assist you. Samples need to be taken from several different locations on your site. Results can be stored and later compared to future samples ensuring the planted materials have appropriately balance soil and readily available nutrients. These, and other considerations will make your soil and nutrient analysis results meaningful and appropriate to your site.
Analyzing the soil and nutrients will allow us to prescribe the right soil amendments that will enhance the growing medium of your site. Soil enhancement is an important step to preparing the land for revegetation; proper recommendations can only be made with detailed soil and nutrient analysis.
Terrasol outsources its analysis to an independent source we have been working with for decades. Every aspect of the each soil sample is analyzed and a detailed report is produced allowing us to make the proper recommendations for your site’s rehabilitation. We also provide tissue analysis which provides us with information on the nutrients already being used by plants or grasses onsite.
