Soil Mapping – Landscaping & Lawn Care

Do you know what kind of soil you have in your yard?  Knowing the type of soil is the first step to having healthy, lush plants.  The Allen Soil & Water Conservation District has published this handy map with general outlines of the different types of soil in Allen County:

Once you know what type of soil you have, you can determine what plants will grow best there, and what type of fertilizer you should be using.  The staff at the ASWCD are more than willing to answer questions if you call them at 419-222-0967.  And of course, the landscape experts at Blass Residential Services would love to answer your questions too!
