We have all the information you need to get this done at the following link to the Soil Testing portion of the Home and Garden Information Center website: http://www.extension.umd.edu/hgic/soils/soil-testing

This includes information and video about how to take a soil sample, and a chart of regional labs which can complete the analysis for you.
For example, here is that chart: http://www.extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_docs/programs/hgic/HGIC_Pubs/HG110a_SoilTestLabs%2...
