Our team at EcoEarthSeal is passionate about conservation, and we want to help you do what’s best for your land. One of the many services we offer is soil inspection, as it’s important to know what’s in your soil and assess its quality in order to choose what to plant in it. In this article, our team will go over a few reasons why you might want to schedule a soil inspection.
- To Check for Toxins – One reason to get a soil inspection is to check it for toxins. Various chemicals and heavy metals can contaminate your soil, and you’ll want to know this before planting something like a vegetable garden or before letting any animals eat the grass in that area. Our team can analyze your soil in detail, and we’ll let you know right away if we find any harmful elements in it.
- To Check Nutrient Levels – Another reason to schedule a soil inspection is to make sure your soil has the right nutrients to support plant growth. Over time, certain plants will use up various nutrients in the soil, leading to poorer harvests. Our team can analyze your soil to help you figure out which fertilizers to use to restore its nutrient content, as well as suggesting alternative methods for soil restoration.
- To Check for Strength – Our soil inspection team can also assess your soil’s strength, meaning how much it expands or contracts over time. Strong soil is dense enough to resist settling, and it won’t expand or contract much at all in response to moisture. Weak soil is much more likely to settle or compact over time and will experience more extreme expansion and contraction. You’ll need to be aware of these issues before you begin any construction projects on your land, so we encourage you to have your soil inspected.
