Soil Sample

Asked February 15, 2018, 10:03 AM EST

I have an area in my front lawn that will not allow any plant life, bulbs, shrubs to grow. How would I go about sending in a soil sample for review?

Here is our page with all you need to know to get a soil sample tested: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/soils/soil-testing

Many issues can cause a bare area where plants won't grow well. If you tell us more about the area--what's been done there, characteristics of the site--and attach a few photos we may be able to be more help.
