As part of a complete lawn care company, GEM has been performing detailed soil sample analysis for our customers throughout Anchorage. All soil samples are pulled and prepared by our staff while the testing is done at the University of Massachusetts Amherst soil testing lab. These tests are some of the most in depth available, and at a very reasonable cost.
Have you ever wondered why your lawn is not as green as the neighbors? Or perhaps why you can’t get anything to grow in your garden? Soil testing might be the best way to find the solution. There are many places throughout the U.S. that offer this service, for a variety of fees. The best place to look is your local cooperative extension service. Some of these cooperative extensions offer FREE testing through their college labs though this is typically only offered to local residents, as is not available in Alaska.
