What Is Environmental Soil Sampling?

Soil sampling is a process that involves collecting and analyzing soil from various locations and depths on a property. This process aims to assess the soil's physical and chemical properties, including its nutrient content, levels of organic matter, pH levels, and potential contaminants. The gathered information provides valuable insights into the soil's health and suitability for various uses, such as gardening, farming, or construction.

The sampling process often involves digging or drilling into the soil to collect samples, which are then sent to a laboratory for detailed analysis. The results from soil sampling can guide landowners in making informed decisions and planning for the future, whether that means they need to amend their soil for better plant growth or assess the environmental safety of their land before a building project. By understanding what's in your soil, you can take steps to improve its health and productivity, contributing to a thriving ecosystem.

Our Portland soil sampling team offers customers free estimates and same-day services whenever possible. Give us a call at (503) 719-6715 today to get started!
