|Any project would greatly benefit from proper soil and tissue analysis as part of any SportsTurf maintenance program. Soil analysis offers a broad range of information about the type and chemical makeup of your soil profile. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are the primary elements needed to grow grass. These levels should be checked to better understand what elements are missing from the soil.
Tissue analysis offers a view into the grasses root system and which nutrients are actually being taken from the surrounding soil.
Both soil and tissue analysis offer a better understanding of the “plants” on your site and what steps might be available for a better looking and more durable grass cover. Terrasol can help you make informed decisions on the addition of other seed species that can provide your turf with different properties, such as drought and winter tolerance. Soil modification products are also available through Terrasol and all would benefit from a full soil and/or tissue analysis prior.
Soil and tissue 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 considerations will allow your soil and nutrient analysis results will make for meaningful and appropriate to your site.
