What is the cost for a soil test?
Rate This FAQ
The "routine" soil test costs $14. This tells you the soil texture, pH, salinity, phosphorous (P) and potassium (K). Results are sent directly to you and also to the USU Extension agent in your county. Results give recommendations for fertilizer applications according to the crop to be grown in that soil.
You can download instructions and order forms for soil tests at the Utah State University Analytical Laboratory website: www.usual.usu.edu
Be sure to follow the instructions on taking a representative soil sample so that analysis results lead to sound recommendations.

- I recently had a handyman come to adjust the sprinklers at a house we do not live in and are trying to sell, and he unfortunately turned off the sprinklers without us knowing, and the grass went a few weeks without being watered. Since we discovered it, we began watering and I laid down turf builder to see if I could jump start the regrowth. The grass looks brown and dead over much of the lawn, however, since I fertilized, I can see little green spots and individual green shafts here and there. What should I do now? Can I seed over the existing dead lawn? What is the fastest and best way back to green without tearing up the whole yard and starting again? (The backyard sod was new last year)
