By finding the various levels of the nutrients in your soil Clear Cut Group can determine which nutrients can be added that are otherwise lacking. This is a great way to optimize the nutrient inputs of your soil and increase the quality of soil in your lawn or garden. Soil fertility is also an important factor to look for. By assessing the soil fertility we can determine the soils capability of storing and releasing plant nutrients. These essential nutrients include nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (N, P, and K) in addition to other elements noted above. The fertility of the soil is also directly associated with the amount of organic matter present as well.
The pH level is also examined. Measuring the pH level of your soil helps to determine amount acidity or alkalinity that is present. Some plants do quite well in a neutral pH environment of about 6.6 to 7.4 (out of 14) or in a slightly higher level of acidity (6.0 to 6.5).
