For landscape architects, laboratory testing provides invaluable insight into the current conditions of your client’s soil and water before time and money is spent to put in a landscape. A soil and water report will add professionalism to your work and data to support and inform your decisions. It may also help develop information to create a more suitable plant palate for the site and show that you regard the client’s situation as unique.
A soil report can be a valuable tool for both you and your client and in an increasing number of situations, a required step in the permitting process. Our Horticultural Appraisal package is WELO compliant and gives a full physical and chemical analysis of the soil where your landscape will be grown. For new landscapes, the report gives pre-plant recommendations of common fertilizer amendments in pounds, ounces, or cubic yards per 1000 square feet.
Reports are straight-forward and easy-to-understand. Clients can choose organic or conventional amendments. We provide concise easy-to-read amendment recommendations in both hardcopy and electronic formats as requested, making it easy to transfer information directly onto drawings and specs. It may also help develop information to create a more suitable plant palate for the particular site.
