Soil Samples

We collected several soil samples from our yard for analysis. They have been in unsealed individual ziplock bags for approximately two weeks. Are they still suitable for accurate analysis or do you advise getting fresh samples?

Landscaper referral

As part of the Foxgate Home owners association that has extensive plantings in the common areas of the home area, we are looking to find a reliable and experienced landscaper for consultation as to plantings, trees, shrubs, and grass. We have relied on several landscapers associated to nurseries, which often had influence with the plantings . As a neighborhood that desire beauty as well as variety we are seeking suggested references of such. Our addition is located between shelbyville road and hurstbourne off ward avenue in middletown KY. This would be a as needed position with payment for services. Let me know of suggestions. Tom Kaye 502-298-4110

Neighborhood weeds and invasive species

Hello, I am interested in helping our neighborhood get rid of a significant amount of invasive species that seem to be choking out a tree line and blocking use of a sidewalk. I know that there are different recommendations for removal of different species, with their different root structures and the like. I am curious if I might forward along some pictures of the various weeds and see if you might be able to help identify some of them so that we could know how best to remove. Would your office be agreeable to having a look? If some can't be identified, we would not hold it against you, and would appreciate your efforts in any event. Thanks!

Selecting trees for a residential lot

I would like recommendations on a couple trees that would be appropriate for my backyard. I live in a residential area in Louisville. My goal is to provide all day shade for our backyard where my three young children play. My house is 2 story brick. Morning sun hits my backyard. There is a school yard behind my house. There are not any electrical wires in the back. I would like to create shade for the full day. I am interested in sturdiness, fall leaf pickup, and other droppings from the tree. Also include what size trees I should purchase. Thank You Barbara
